The MS-6538 or "James Bond Large Crown" is part of our ISO (In the Spirit Of) MilSub Range of Military of Inspired Diving Watches (1950's-1970's). We have distilled the essence of this early classic pre-crown guard large crown diving watch. It has the overly large marker at 12H, Mercedes hour hand, 8.0mm crown and knurled bezel with simple insert.
Like the Porsche 911, it is the same but different. This model is a big departure from its inspiration, taking its design inspiration from the Bauhaus - pure function. No crown guard and a Big Crown with knurling for better grip. We continued the knurling onto the bezel, a bigger minute hand and a colourer second hand. And a little luxury with Raised hour markers. Offered only as a black dial with date or no date and raw C3 SuperLumiNova.
