The Reference

We hate admitting defeat, but in this case, we are throwing our hands up and waving a white flag. Not only do we know nothing about Victor but we couldn’t even find a single other watch with that name on it. A real first for us. Here is what we do know. The movement is an automatic ETA 2782, the dial reads Swiss Made, the caseback is stamped with what looks to be a reference number, 911/1, and a serial number, 3225, and the case is a cushion style case that can be seen on some white labeled divers from the 70s (check out this Fulton). Was this a custom one off, a small white label run, or something else entirely? We have no idea but we do know that the yellow color is awesome, the components and movement are good quality, and the condition is great. We’re chalking it up to a win in our book.

The Case

The 38mm stainless steel case is in very good condition. The edges are sharp and the brushed and polished finishes are assumed correct. The highlight of the case has to be the yellow bakelite bezel with turquoise accents. The caseback and crown are the same as what we have seen in other watches that use this case.

The Dial and Hands

The dial and hands are in excellent condition. The glossy yellow color has a bit of metallic flake in it that adds great depth and the black hands and hour markers add great contrast. The lume is in matching excellent condition and was applied with care.

The Movement

This watch features an automatic ETA 2782 movement with a quickset date. The watch is running and the service history is not known.
