eBay Finds May, 2020: A Seamaster, a Jump Hour, a Dual Crown Diver, and More

Share this story:

After a short hiatus, eBay Finds is back! In this series, @vintagediver digs up some great upcoming vintage watch auctions on the bay. Naturally, these aren’t going to be around for very long, so be sure to check them out asap!

In this edition, we have four watches from four brands with pretty eclectic styling. Enjoy!


1932 Bulova Jump Hour

And now for something completely different. Super cool and stylish circa 1932 Bulova White Prince jump hour model. Bulova released several different models that had a case style similar to this one, but the jump hour digital style is quite scarce. A beautiful stepped case with great engraved details is in great shape, and the seller states the watch is running well. These quite petit by today’s standards, so keep that in mind if you have a meaty wrist. But you really can’t beat this watch for straight-up ‘cool factor’. This is the kind of piece that will get comments when worn for sure.

1961 Omega Seamaster

One can never go wrong with a vintage Omega Seamaster, especially when it still has its original bracelet! The radial starburst silver dial is perfect and has raised gold baton markers and Omega symbol, as well as gold stick hands. This circa 1960s beauty appears to be all original and unpolished, with nice little lugs, the classic engraved sea monster logo on the back, and the correct signed crown. The gorgeous caliber 565 automatic movement looks pristine, and the seller states it keeps good time and the quick-set date functions properly. Paired with the signed Omega bracelet, this gem looks ready to wear and enjoy!

1961 Eterna-Matic Centenaire

Dual signed dials are scarce for most brands, and this is the first example I’ve seen on an Eterna. Dual signed dials are quite desirable and add a nice touch of uniqueness. This example looks to be in excellent, unpolished condition, and the seller states it has even been serviced (although you always have to take these types of statements with a grain of salt). This is a really sleek looking piece that looks like it could be straight out of a Mad Men episode.

’60s Baylor Dual-Crown Diver

There are more than 100 different brands that have had Super Compressor models, and while Longines and Universal Geneve and Enicar get the lions share of recognition, don’t sleep on this Baylor. This is the 36mm size, perfect for just about any wrist. The charcoal black dial is in excellent condition, with nice creamy patina’d lume. It has the killer fat dual crowns with the Baylor logo in lieu of the more classic cross-hatching. The goldtone AS movement is clean as a whistle, and the seller states it is running well. Some of the Super Compressors can get into the realm of crazy high prices, but if you’re looking for an entry-level Super Compressor, give this Baylor a look.

Christoph (Instagram’s @vintagediver) is a long time collector and lover of all things vintage, starting with comic books when he was a kid (he still collects them). His passion for watches began in 1997 when he was gifted a family heirloom vintage Omega Genève by his step-father. That started him on the watch collecting path—buying and selling vintage watches of all sorts, with a special appreciation for vintage dive watches and Seiko.
