  • DIAL: WOWZA, THIS IS A SERIOUSLY STEALTH DIAL. THIS MIGHT BE MY FAVOURITE SKIN-DIVER FACE OF ALL TIME. I JUST LOVE THAT SLATE GREY MATTE FINISH WITH THAT MATCHING DATE WHEEL....IT JUST SPEAKS TO MY SOUL. THE GLOSS BLACK HANDS REALLY LOOK BADASS AGAINST THE SLATE GREY DIAL MAKING THIS THING LOOK TOTALLY SPECIAL-OPS. WHAT REALLY MAKES THIS FACE POP ARE THOSE THICK TRIANGLE WEDGES OF HEAVY TRITIUM AT 12/6/9. THOSE MATCHED WITH THE STEEL MARKERS WITH THE SLIVERS OF LUME REALLY LOOK UBER COOL. THERE'S THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF CUSTARDY PATINA ON ALL THE TRITIUM GIVING THIS A NICE WARM TONE 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS SKIN-DIVER RUNS ON A 17J SEARS SIGNED A.SCHILD AUTOMATIC.  IT RUNS BUTTER SMOOTH AND KEEPS EXCELLENT TIME. QUICKSET DATE IS ACHIEVED BY ROTATING TIME BETWEEN 2000 AND MIDNIGHT. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN, BUT WATCH IS KEEPING TIME ON THE TIMEGRAPHER AND DEMONSTRATING STRONG AMPLITUDE.

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A HANDMADE TAN LEATHER STRAP WHICH LOOKS SUPER SEXY ON THIS TRADITION. TRADITION WAS THE IN-HOUSE WATCH BRAND FOR SEARS ROEBUCK IN THE 60s AND 70s. THEY MADE SOME PRETTY MEMORABLE CHRONOGRAPHS AND SPORTS WATCHES OFTEN MADE BY BIG FISH BRANDS SUCH AS YEMA AND HEUER FOR TRADITION. THIS PARTICULAR SKIN-DIVER IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITES OF THE ERA. THIS TRADITION IS BOTH SPORTY AND SLEEK MAKING IT THE PERFECT ALL-ROUNDER.
