empressissi™ is pleased to offer this extremely rare and hardly used, phenomenal condition diver watch for the American market - The DivingStar 1500 (ft) from the mid 70s.

Although numerous manufacturers made super compressor models the Cyma is far rarer than even the Zodiac Super Seaworld and is genuinely one of the rarest super compressor watches there is, without doubt an amazing investment opportunity at the same time as being a very wearable tool watch.
The watch houses a bullet proof ETA based CYMA caliber, it is running well and keeping good time with functional date. The movement sits in a heavy stainless steel compartment still retaining the original finish with very little signs considering the utility of this watch. It has an original signed screw down crown and a thick original mineral crystal. The bezel is covered by a gorgeous orange bi-lateral ring bezel in perfect shape. (Please note that this watch was not tested to be waterproof although it most likely still is).
