Technos Sky Diver

Technos Sky Diver

SKU: VWS-1490

Here is a wonderful, all original Technos Sky Diver from 1974. The black dial is in very fine condition, with a steel Technos logo and barely any visible marks. It has large lume wedge hour markers at the poles and lume circles in between. The wide mercedes hands are in fine condition with some degradation to the original lume. The seconds hand has the characteristic lume filled circle at the tip. The steel framed window at 3 o’clock displays the quick-set date. The quick-set should only be used with the hands at the bottom half of the dial. The hack stops the seconds hand when the crown is pulled out.


The rotatable stainless steel bezel with bakelite insert is in fine condition with some overall wear, perhaps most pronounced at around the 5 mark. The very large stainless case with the original scew down crown and embedded lugs is in fine condition with some overall wear, perhaps most pronounced at the upper lugs. The stainless steel case back is in fine condition with some overall wear and a well preserved Technos anchor logo in the middle.


The watch comes on an after market rubber diver strap of good quality. Note that vintage diver’s watches are not suitable for actual diving!


Inside the watch, the ETA 2783 movement beats strongly and accurately to within about +-12 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in November 2021 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


The Sky Diver is perhaps Technos’ best known model, with its bold and rugged design providing reliably high performance. This is a watch that looks great on the wrist and it’s a perfect daily driver.



Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.


NB! Note that the buyer is responsible for any import fees their country may impose on a purchase from abroad. Ask us if you have any questions.
