Below the Surface

In the late 1950s, dive watches were all the rage - Rolex had just released the Submariner and Blancpain had just released the Fifty Fathoms. For watch lovers, divers were on the mind. However, for the majority of people, a professional dive watch like these two was wholly unnecessary - after all, SCUBA was a very new and expensive sport. Small Swiss watchmaking brands came up with the perfect solution - skindivers. These watches were thinner and more elegant than a traditional diver, but carried many of their most desirable design elements - such as the dive bezel, domed crystal, and more hefty stainless steel case. This Tiara is the perfect example of the inventiveness of these small watchmakers - by using a time honored and famously reliable ETA movement, the watchmakers were able to focus on perfecting the watch’s design - and boy, did they nail it with this one.
