Watch of the day

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?


My Flavor Of The Day


Bulova, Oceanographer, Devil Diver 666, Re-Issue

Closing-out the work week with the work week with a timepiece that was on the top of my must-have list for 2018, the Bulova, Oceanographer, Devil Diver 666, Re-Issue. This reincarnation of the vintage Devil Diver, is in a word, perfect. For those that love consistency and continuity, Bulova stayed true to the original, iconic design of the 666, down to the dial detail, but opted to go with a larger case design, to more closely meet modern standards.


This watch is not only perfect aesthetically, having amazing good looks, it's a perfect wear on the wrist as well. The cushion case, coming in at 44 mm, sits perfectly on the wrist. The jubilee-style bracelet wraps the wrist comfortably, and has only snagged a couple of my arm hairs to-date, LOL. The dial, which looks black in many photos, is actually a deep blue, and the raised, bubble index markers, is definitely a throwback to the original design from the early 1970's.


Pairing the Devil Diver today, with a custom-designed, color coordinated, beaded bracelet, designed by Beads By Gonzo, making my wrist-game status today, devilish.
