From Hodinkee “ Known by few, it was the brand’s first alarmed diving watch, introduced in 1959 in two dial variations - one for the US market and another for the European market. The Deep Sea Alarm was built for two years only and in very small numbers, most JLC literature says around 950 pieces, for both the US and European editions combined. Few have survived, probably due to the environment for which it was built, and while the JLC revived the Deep Sea Alarm concept this year with two new faithtful recreations, there is nothing like an original.”
The watch was serviced in house and all the old pieces are included with the watch.
The watch is running at COSC spec.
