Often called “the Devil Diver” by collectors for its 666 feet depth rating, the Snorkel is arguably one of the best deals in the vintage dive market. Featuring an attractive Explorer type dial with large tritium indicators and 12-6-9 numerals with unique dauphine hands, a sporty bidirectional steel bezel, and a bulletproof automatic movement, it’s easy to see why this watch was such a bestseller in the 1960s.
Whether you are looking for a collectible diver, or simply desire a good looking, sporty piece to add to the rotation, It’s probably best to grab one soon before mint examples such as the one we have today become harder to find.
We've paired this one with a breezy Molequin nubuck strap in a rich brown colour to accentuate its lovely patina.
