Cliwal Skin Diver Ref. 987911
The watch world is full of little sweet spots and niches. One that we particularly enjoy is that of skin divers. These watches from the 1960s and 70s were often manufactured under license, which is why you will find all sorts of exotic and hardly-known names on their dials. This time it is Cliwal Watch.
The characteristic skin diver case shape we know and love is present here. But while most are intended for casual aquatic fun, this one is actually quite a serious dive watch. It is fitted with a screw down crown and a depth rating of 200 meters. Of course, fifty years on you should keep it dry, but it tells us that this a little more than your average skin diver.
The dial has a pale, greyish blue tone, which is very attractive. It is fitted with applied markers with a thick coating of lume. It is surrounded by a friction-based dive time bezel, which has lost its paint filling over the years. The result is a very clean and authentic aesthetic.
Come and give this little gem a try at Reestraat 3 in Amsterdam.
