Wristwatches may look the same, but only a few have the power to transcend time and space. The iconic Orvin Diver Day Date is among them. A timepiece with a distinguished history, this creation was born out of sophisticated concepts in Swiss watchmaking. It is the original 1970s vintage 17 jewels antimagnetic mechanical hand-wound dive wristwatch, which is now making a bold comeback.
If you have a soft spot for vintage timepieces for watersports, the Diver Day Date will make your heart skip a beat. Let’s explore below its amazing features and specifications, making it an ideal diving watch to add to your collection.
At the heart of the watch is a powerful stepping motor of a Ronda 517 analog quartz movement. Moreover, it boasts a day-date quick change and a power-saving pull-out mechanism. Hence, you can rely on its accuracy and precision.
The Diver Day Date is a vintage beauty at its finest. Its 36mm brushed stainless steel plated case paired with a polished crown is a classic detail preserved from the original model. It features a bi-directional bezel that rotates smoothly without clicking or ratcheting. What’s more, it comes with a 3H day date at 6H which is one of the most distinct features from the old prototype. These and more outstanding details are preserved from the vintage-style Orvin diver that stays true to its Swiss watchmaking testament.
Further adding to its appeal is the sleek semi-gloss sunray dial that creates a nostalgic vibe. The meticulously crafted luminescent hands, dash hour markers, indices, and numerals provide readability even in dim-lit environments.
The sapphire mineral glass box creates a three-dimensional angle adding an authentic vintage feel plus an anti-reflective coating for that required legibility. It is scratch-resistant, and if it does scratch, the scratch can be effortlessly buffed out. With the impressive clarity of a sapphire crystal, the dial elements appear to be more defined giving a clean, premium feel.
The Topnotch Features
This 3-hand day-date has a classic charm that is everlasting. Orvin offers the range with 6 dial versions – silver, black, brown, blue, teal green, and olive green – either on a stainless steel bracelet or a vintage-style rivet lug leather strap, providing a full range of 12 versatile styling options.
The watch is water-resistant to 20 ATM and runs on a highly reliable quartz that is proven and tested to be durable with proven quality. In bespoke brown PU leather box packaging, the watch sits in a velour-lined sturdy box that looks and feels nice.
