1974 Caravelle Digimatic. 25 Jewel automatic, back was loose so I took a movement picture and replaced the gasket:

Next one is also mid-70's but a diver! A Dual Day Set-o-matic....great looking colors and a cool chunky case. Oh yeah it's NOS never worn......I need to find a 19 mm strap or bracelet for it, so excuse the one I put on it....

42mm with the crown X 43.5mm long X 12.5mm thick with 18mm lugs. Too small most likely......

Not to sound rude, but I've been searching and the ones I saw aren't cheap, can you ballpark what you paid?

Yours LOOKS brand new...

If it makes you feel any better I bought an electric Seiko $5 (never seen one before), an automatic Seiko $5 , and a beautiful Bulova $10...that all turned out to be hunks of crap, so I lost $$ on those.... Razz . Seriously.. hope you find one they are not $500 great......

Woohoo, you have done it again Gary ! Couple of Caravelles 933578 ..I honestly
haven't seen these models before ! ..Yowza !!! Can't
believe the shape these two are in either. Just TERRIFIC
to see these ! ..Honestly don't recall seeing one of these
Digimatics before. They are beyond cool ! ..The way it
tells time is amazing. Seems to have some neat discs
that rotate around. You could end up staring at how
this watch tells time for a LONG time ! Couple of Caravelles Icon_biggrin ..Would be
a nice conversation piece too I bet. What's also very
nice is how the dial itself is set up. The one side is
black, and the other side looks like a large silver arrow
which points right over to the time. That IS GREAT !
Also great is the shape of the case, it's extremely
different looking with it's edges, and lines. I like that
crystal there also ! Wow !!!! ..What an incredible
looking movement as well. VERY beautiful, and again
looks brand new ! Couple of Caravelles 803574 ..Moving to your Set-O-Matic,
this one is just as unique. It's got that exceptional
dive theme, with the dial, and it's COOL hands, and
numbers. However, that bezel trys to steal the show
imho. The way in which it angles in towards the dial
is off the charts sir. Don't see that much, if at all
nowadays ! ..Plus the numbers on the bezel together
with the pepsi theme give it even more character.
Speaking of character..how about the way this case
looks ?! Couple of Caravelles Icon_smile ..It's another intriguing design that was
evidently used by Caravelle, and it is pretty incredible
too. Kind of helps show off that bezel and dial even
more. ..Finish it off with another perfect strap and
you have a couple of COOL Caravelles here !..
..Congratulations on finding these two Gary !!!
These are CLASSICS ! ..Enjoy them !

..REAL NICE pics as well !

Two nice ones. I like the Digimatic and the diver is even nicer. Both appear to be in great shape. Congratulations
