I am selling a vintage and rare Wyler Surfstar Lifeguard Diver, 37mm without the crown with is original and signed. It has an ETA 2788 movement with the incaflex shock absorption protection patented by Wyler where they modified the balance wheel by suspending it with the flexible arms. This way it provided additional shock resistance. Apparently the watch has been thrown to wall by their salesman and continued to work without problem as the watch has been dropped from the Eiffel Tower, Seattle Space Needle and St. louis Arch as well to show that the watch can withstand any impact.
Hodinkee has a nice summary of Wyler history here:

The watch has a unique mono case for the better water resistance of 200 m and therefore two fish lifeguard sign on the back as well, luminous hands and markers. Watch has few scratches on the plexi which will be polished prior to sale. This watch winds, sets and keeps good time. It comes with an aftermarket quality bracelet.

Price $450 for this rare bird.
