Right there at the beginning of diving watch history
Think “Vulcain” and the first thing that comes to mind is “Cricket”. That would be selling the brand short; Vulcain is a treasure trove of watchmaking sleeping beauties that resonate with a nostalgic vibe. The Skindiver Nautique is all set to make a splash in the vintage-like market. Inspired by a Vulcain model launched in 1960, it is powered by ETA’s 2824 three-hand Swiss automatic caliber with a 38-hour power reserve, the workhorse among the famed movement maker’s range of mechanical calibers.
Its resolutely vintage presence make this 1,490 CHF diver's watch more than a compelling proposition in the landscape of reissued diving watches of yesteryear. The Skindiver Nautique has all the attributes of an underwater tool watch, as evidenced by the ultra-legible Super-Luminova-enhanced hands and indexes, which come in khaki brown for an elegant contrast by day and enhanced legibility in low-light conditions, and the unidirectional fluted bezel with black ceramic insert and contrasting white markers. Rated to a depth of 200 meters, the watch is ideally proportioned with a 38mm stainless-steel case.
Is offered in two versions:
The Skindiver Nautique 38mm comes with a matte black dial with white transfer-printed minute track and signature, khaki brown Super-Luminova-enhanced hands and hour markers; the ‘quick-change’ strap is leather with a black carbon pattern and matching stitching.
The Skindiver Nautique 38mm with a vertical brushed blue dial; transfer-printed minute track and signature in white; khaki brown Super-Luminova-enhanced hands and hour markers; the leather strap with a black carbon pattern and matching stitching conveniently features a ‘quick-change’ system.
