Why We Love it

In the past decade or so, we’ve seen historical - but mainly forgotten - brands like Aquastar, Vulcain and Wolbrook revived with new life — and deservedly so.

These once-zombiedd brands offer legitimate historical significance and design substance in spades; so it’s no wonder that thoughtful stewards have been bringing them back to be worn and appreciated by contemporary enthusiasts. Brand heritage - in the form of connections to historically significant individuals who once wore them is also a common theme amongst the three. When it comes to Wolbrook, there is a legitimate connection to the era of the space race, hypersonic rocket-powered jet testing and the first man to ever step on the moon, Neil Alden Armstrong. The watch worn by one of the most famous men of all time?

No, not that oneThe other one!

The Wolbrook Skindiver World Timer.

A relatively benign, inexpensive model from an obscure brand, the Skindiver WT utilized contract components, but was high on style. It certainly caught the eye of Mr. Armstrong!

This piece features a familiar 'skindiver' 35mm chrome case utilized by dozens of brands in period, and is fitted with a rotating world time bezel, domed magnified acrylic crystal, unsigned crown and a luminous matte black dial with a printed 24-hour scale and green toned hash and quadrant Arabic indices. Its stylized arrow hour hand and red seconds hand jump out at the wearer and play nicely with the red-text date displayed at 3 o'clock.

Powered by a hand-winding movement and fitted to an Analog:Shift Murdock Red II Montone Strap, this piece is ready to be a companion on any pilot-test mission, around the globe on a jet-setting adventure, or even a trip to your local cafe!
