Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?

My Flavor Of The Day

McDowell Time, Tidewater

The last time I had the McDowell Time, Tidewater Diver on my wrist was a Sunday, so I suppose this has become my go to, weekend, Sunday best timepiece. It's easy to see why, as the build quality on this Tidewater is off the charts. The case, bezel, and Engineer bracelet, are milled, and made from the highest quality components; you can literally feel the quality of this timepiece.

The hue of Blue used on the dial and bezel is one of the more unique, and vibrant colors I've ever seen used on a timepiece. And with the signature, McDowell Time, hints of Orange, it simply makes the dial and bezel POP even more. The cushioned case is ultra-comfortable, and along with the multi-link, Engineer bracelet, sits atop the wrist in an absolutely perfect presentation.

Lume on this piece, as you might expect on a high-grade dive watch, is more than adequate. And even gives you a nice preview of the lume, with an impressive daytime lume show. This timepiece is quickly becoming a favorite within my collection. Pairing the Tidewater today, with a custom-crafted, beaded bracelet, designed by Beads By Gonzo, complementing the signature Blue and Orange McDowell Time colors.
