Watch of the day (WOTD)
What's my wrist-wear choice for today?
My Flavor Of The Day
It's a Blue Monday, and this particular Monday, is Bluer than most others, with the newest arrival to the collection, in the Gruppo Gamma, Divemaster 500.
Gruppo Gamma is a Microbrand that I've admired from afar, especially the general aesthetics of their dial work. One of the things that I didn't necessarily find favorable about the brand, was how heavily some of their designs were influenced by Panerai. I know, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so I can give Gruppo a bit of a break, in the design regard. That being said, when I first saw the Divemaster 500, I was immediately captivated by the look, as it doesn't follow the predictable, Panerai influenced blueprint, as some of their previous models.
Speaking of Blue, the gradient, sandwich dial on this Gruppo is amazing. Couple that with the Blue, Ceramic bezel, and round, submariner-influenced case design, it gives this piece a unique, dynamic presentation on the wrist. The Blue, canvas strap, with Blue stitching, might seem slightly overdone, but it still works well for the overall look! Look for a full review upcoming on this timepiece. And since this is my first day enjoying this Blue beauty, you're looking at my WOTD choice for Tuesday!
Keeping the color theme with my accessory choice, a custom-crafted bracelet, designed by Beads By Gonzo, making my Wrist-Game Blue with envy today!
