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 Wittnauer is what we love. The enormous hour indices accompanied by a generous amount of tritium lume that has aged just the way you want. To anyone who has not worn one they are extremely comfortable and sleek.
