eaching back into the brand’s archive of historical timepieces, Bulova previously reissued the 1972 Oceanographer, popularly known in its time as the “Devil Diver.” Continuing to build on its Oceanographer collection, Bulova unveils a new model featuring the same iconic original orange dial.

After years of supplying waterproof and accurate timepieces to the U.S. military, the unique piece was designed for diving conditions, wrapping snuggly around a diver’s wrist and featuring a rotating bezel with black and red detail. The timepiece earned its nickname “Devil Diver” when the brand famously printed “666 feet” on the original dial referring in Imperial system terms to the depth that the timepiece could withstand underwater and breaking with the conformity of the traditional 200m used by Swiss watchmakers.

A design tribute to the ‘70’s Oceanographer diver watch, Bulova unveils a new model in a smaller, true to the original 41mm case size - this time, adding a versatile, sporty and comfortable rubber strap.

This striking timepiece features the Oceanographer iconic “666 feet” on the dial and is ISO certified with water resistance to 200M (666ft). The signature orange dial stands proudly against a black sport rubber strap with a three-piece buckle closure. Powered by a self-winding mechanical movement with a 42-hour power reserve, the watch is offered with a stainless steel screw-back case and screw-down crown.

Further details include a black and orange unidirectional bezel, three-hand dial with luminescent markers, date feature, and box sapphire crystal with blue anti-reflective coating.

Price: USD 750
