Gruen Orange Dial Automatic Diver

Buy for: $545.00

The Reference

Why did the orange turn into orange juice? It couldn’t handle the pressure. Luckily, this orange dialed dive watch definitely can handle the pressure.

All bad jokes and puns aside, this Gruen skin diver from the 70s differentiates itself from the large world of skin divers of this era with a striking orange dial. We love when watches use bold color to stand out from the crowd and this watch certainly does that. As we head into winter this watch has us pining for a sunny beach and a tropical drink.

The Case

The 36mm stainless steel case is in very good condition. The design is classic skin diver with slim proportions, an oversized crown, and a rotating dive bezel. The acrylic crystal is in matching very good condition. All of the components are correct for the watch.

The Dial and Hands

The orange dial is the standout component of this watch and the overall condition is great. The more subtle design elements such as the white hands and cross-hair add nice bits of contrast and bring a classic 70s feel to the overall design.
