Modern Oris Limited Edition Carl Brashear automatic Divers watch with a unidirectional 60-minute rotating bezel, only 2000 made! Features a bronze case with stainless steel back, blue dial, luminescent hands and markers and a dark brown leather strap. Watch is complete with box and papers as well certificate indicating it is one of 2000 made, it is pre-owned but has seen little or no wrist time. The Oris Carl Brashear celebrates another nautical aspect of bronze. The namesake tie in to the watch is the celebration of nautical hero, Carl Brashear. Mr. Brashear graduated from the U.S. Navy Diving and Salvage school in 1954. Later, he would become the first African-American “Master Diver”. This achievement is perhaps even more impressive considering he accomplished this feat as an amputee diver (another U.S. Navy first) due to an earlier underwater salvage accident that claimed his lower left leg. Like other Navy divers of the era, Mr. Brashear wore a Mark V diving helmet which is featured on the stainless steel caseback. Oris chose to do the caseback in stainless steel as opposed to bronze to cut down on potential allergic reactions with the material against the skin. Photos are not actual size of watch, the case measures 42 mm across (not including crown) x 50 mm lug to lug and is fit with Oris leather bracelet with bronze buckle (a second buckle in stainless steel is included in box)
