This is a dive watch, but it’s not any dive watch. As opposed to standard divers with screw down water-resistant crowns, super compressors (like this) utilized a much more interesting and intricate technology. As water pressure on the outside of the case increases, the case back tightens and further compresses the gaskets so that the watch actually became more water resistant the deeper you dive. While this Hamilton (like all other 60’s divers) is beyond its technical prime, it looks just as beautiful as ever. Not only are its dial and inner bezel still crisp but its case is still sharp and it has even managed to retain its two cross-hatched crowns. This is one of my favorite sports watches of all time and it’s my absolute pleasure to be offering it here for you.
