From circa 1966 / 1967. Around 1000 pieces were made according to Antiquorum. 

A nice alternative to the Rolex Submariner! 

The shape of the case is really impressive, I must say.

It reminds me very much of the SLA017, which has the same mid 60’s style (including the case shape) ...  

Agree, yes the GP has longer lugs for sure

Love the divers from this era

I love all these old watches but...

in person, the lightness and 'plastic' crystal... the old unsophisticated movements that are shared by 20 other watches... they do let me down, personally....leaving you with a cool dial... maybe a cool case... my 2C ... much love Nico!

Thank you for the clarification.

recently found this blancpain diver Bathyscaphe that has a very strong analogy, I wonder who was the first GP and Blancpain to design the watch ...
