Found this 1997 (T7) NOS Caravelle still in box, never worn. Not bad for $10 with a screwdown crown, and working uni-directional bezel. No WR listed though. Battery was dead, and rubber band crumbled when you touched it. A new battery and NATO with a dial matching gray stripe....works like new!

Yowza, that is crazy cool Gary ! Surprised Cool cheers

Now when you say you found it, do you mean at a garage sale? Smile Or online? Like ebay?
I mean the watch really does look brand new from here, and you would never guess that
it was from 1977 either. Boy oh boy, it is stunning sir, stunning !!! cyclops ..And to tell the truth
I am not sure I have ever seen this one actually. Because I would have remmbered the
unique dial G ! bounce Love that, and love fantastic the style of the bezel as well. ..Very nice !
And actually very different even though it seems classic at first glance. WRUW Wednesday 9/29/21 803574 WRUW Wednesday 9/29/21 803574

What a masterstroke adding in this NATO too Gary ! WRUW Wednesday 9/29/21 46145

Yet another epic addition to your epic collection !! ..A HUMUNGOUS congratulations sir !!!

I found it at a pawn shop, NIB, plastic still on front and back. It's from 1997 (so only 24 years old) not 1977... Smile. Thanks!

You are very very welcome G ! Smile

Oops, my bad, I for some reason saw 77 instead of 97 sir. Embarassed

Well that explains the style seeming more modern then. cheers
But it still is different looking, not to mention just plain
cool ! Cool Very Happy And boy oh boy, that must be a pretty neat
pawn shop by the way there. WRUW Wednesday 9/29/21 803574 Usually they will buy a
watch like this for $10, and sell it for $40, $50, or $100. Surprised
But this is one heck of a deal !

So neat sir ! ..Enjoy !!!
