Venturo Skindiver

Divers come in all shapes and sizes. The popularity of a sub-category of slimmer, lighter and dressier divers, called “skin divers”,¬†can be traced¬†back to the late 1950s, up to the Quartz Crisis in the 1970s. With the Skindiver, we’ve incorporated key design cues from skin divers of times past into a modern and refined timepiece that’s immediately recognisable as a Venturo.

Sandwich dial,¬†lancette hands, 12-3-6-9 layout and all, Venturo’s Skindiver¬†is an evolution of¬†Gruppo Gamma’s Mk I Divemaster, with marked improvements in refinement, accuracy, luminosity and long-term serviceability. What used to be a chunky¬†diver¬†has evolved into a more versatile tool, with all the characteristics that made skin divers popular.

Our slimmest diver ever, at 12mm, despite using box-shaped sapphire crystal and two-layer sandwich dial.
Clever case design makes the watch look even slimmer than what it already is.
Thoughtful design makes bezel a joy to turn.
Smooth sweeping seconds hand with Miyota 9 series movement.
Dial glows green and blue in the dark. Even the minute markers are visible.
Custom-made date wheel ensures upright date orientation.
No-date versions do not have intermittent “ghost” crown position.
