The postman brought me this Caravelle automatic from 1975 that's rated to 666 feet. Although the case is only 37mm x 42mm,
the cushion style wears larger. The black and red diver bezel is bi-directional. It's equipped with a Caravelle-signed cal.
11UOACB automatic with 17 jewels, Incabloc shock protection, and operates at 21600 bph with a 46-hour power reserve
rating. It's based on the AS2066 ebauche. Both the large crown and the vintage folded-steel bracelet are embossed "Caravelle."
You'll note that both the caseback and the movement rotor are engraved "N5," which is Bulova's code for 1975.

It has a few scratches and small dings, but what else would you expect from a 36 year-old diver? b-)

The worst it'll likely see is a few sprinkles of water when I wash my hands. ;-)
