One of the most satisfying scuba experiences is the chance to explore old shipwrecks. Marvelous feats of engineering loaded with history, each one is singular and unique. And it’s these characteristics the folks at Spinnaker have drawn from for their line of SP-5065 Wreck Dive Watches.
Each one starts off beautifully — a 43mm 316L stainless steel case with an exhibition back that shows off the 24-jewel automatic movement within — before being uniquely distressed and hand-finished. Special attention is paid to the unidirectional dive timer bezel to ensure it still gets the relic treatment while remaining legible. And while the scratch-resistant mineral crystal remains unblemished, the distressed treatment is also applied to the dial to complete the shipwreck-inspired look. Mated to hand-stitched, waterproofed leather straps, these gorgeous aged diver timepieces sell for $280 a piece.
