Watch of the day (WOTD)
What's my wrist-wear choice for today?
My Flavor Of The Day
My Tuesday WOTD, has me wearing the Smith & Bradley, Wraith Diver. As grab-n-go quartz pieces go, this is about as good as it gets; a tool dive watch, with plenty of good looks and wrist presence.
The wave dial, no doubt is the most captivating design feature of this timepiece. S&B opting to etch the wave pattern into the dial, versus using a printed pattern, was an excellent call. The etched pattern gives the dial plenty of visual depth, making a great backdrop to frame the polished edges on the index markers.
I purchased this watch specifically as one of my Orioles baseball team, themed timepieces. So to further play on that theme, I had a customized, Cal Ripken, Jr., baseball glove, leather strap made for this timepiece, and it really finished-off the look perfectly.
Pairing the Wraith today, and keeping with the nautical theme, is a whale tail, rope bracelet, designed by Dorsal Bracelet Company.
