Note: This watch was photographed with high intensity strobe lighting. Which brings out micro/ superficial scratches that will not be as visible under natural lighting.

In-Depth: Much of the appeal of dive watches is the sheer functionality. Skin Divers are the featherweights of the diver category, they tend to be smaller, slimmer and less water resistant than others. Going back all the way to the mid 1950’s, these skin divers can all be found with very similar cases but very interesting and different dial configurations from different brands. This example from Elgin is what we love. An easy to read dial with the broad arrow hand set. The enormous hour indices accompanied by a generous amount of tritium lume. The perfectly faded outer bezel really makes this piece unique and stand out from the rest. To anyone who has not worn one they are extremely comfortable and sleek.
