This fabulous looking 1970’s SMOKE diving watch has a very cool ‘tool watch’ style with a wide bezel. The timepiece has been designed to be sleek and narrow – a pleasant size and shape to wear – while also eye-catching yet functional on the wrist. The green accents of the indices and numerals on the dial make this watch look a lot more interesting than just a regular diver’s timepiece, and gives the watch great readability!

Key Features

Original chrome, 70’s style plain tonneau shaped case with rotating black plastic bezel marked with white indications. The case is narrow and easy to wear on the wrist at 36 mm, while the black leather strap compliments with the black of the bezel and dial. The dial itself really draws the eye with its bright green numerals and indices, while the little red flash of the small seconds hand gives it an extra pop of colour. The block style indices and hands, combined with the rectangular date window at 3, really give the watch its 70’s feel; while the anchor emblem on the dial combined with the cool aqua diver design on the caseback remind the admirer that this is indeed a diver’s watch.
