Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?

My Flavor Of The Day

Smith & Bradley, Wraith Diver

Thursday's wrist selection, is another not so subtle attempt to keep the summer vibes going, with the Smith & Bradley, Wraith Diver.

The dial on the Wraith is one of the best wave-pattern dials that I've ever experienced. The etched-waves, versus printed or applied wave details, really held lend incredible depth to the dial. As a dive watch, arguably there's no better, or should I say more distinctive color, than Orange. When I saw that S&B was offering the Wraith with an Orange dial, there was no other choice for me. The white index markers, framed with polished edges, against the Orange backdrop, equals amazing dial clarity and presentation! The partially skeletonized hands were a nice choice as well; anything that is less obstructive to viewing the beautiful dial.

This watch is one of my favorites, just because it has a level of customization greater than most of my other timepieces. I purchased this timepiece through the ZewBox watch club. And S&B, through the Zew Box subscription, offered a choice of case finish, dial color, and optional bracelet upgrade. But for this timepiece, I had already tabbed having a custom, baseball glove strap designed, and Miguel at Denver Strap Company didn't disappoint; this Cal Ripken, Jr., baseball glove strap is everything.

Adding to the wrist customization today, is a custom-crafted bracelet, designed by the Master Beader himself, Beads By Gonzo, allowing this Orioles baseball themed timepiece to be a Grand Slam!
