Super-Compressor Watch Case
EPSA is perhaps best known for its development of the “Super-Compressor” watch case in the 1950s. This innovative design featured a two-crown system that improved water resistance as the watch descended to greater depths. As the pressure increased, the case became more watertight, making it ideal for diving watches. Many watch brands, at least 48, including Longines, Jaeger-LeCoultre, and Hamilton, used Super-Compressor cases for their dive watches.
Its vintage design, combined with modern engineering, makes the Wittnauer 8007 EPSA Super-Compressor a sought-after piece for collectors. Oozing with 60’s divers charm our example carries a delightful creamy patina on the indexes.
