VCW edition / Pook Washes
We are the official dealer of Pook watches, the watches are handmade in Joensuu, Finland.
Time does’t matter. Or does it? We all love vintage watches and Citizen made quite a few memorable ones. Some of the most beautiful diving watches were made in Japan. In 1959 the company produced the first Japanese water-resistant wrist watch. This was the “Citizen Parawater”. Soon after, the watch completed two trans-Pacific tests and one in the Sea of Japan. The result, needless to say, was perfect. As time passed Citizen was growing as a company and exported more and more watches and the romantic term “Para Water” was changed to the universally recognized “Water resistant” somewhere around 1970-1973. We can never forget the beautiful black dial with applied hour markers, lug holes to easily change the straps, the really clever way of integrating the acrylic crystal into the case. This was just the start of a beautiful water adventure story and each watch and its owner for sure have quite a few to tell by their well deserved battle scars from their underwater adventures. One of the first real diving watches was the automatic Skin Diver. This is the watch that inspired our watch the most. Some say that it doesn’t get better than this, does it?
Is it perfect? No it is not, it is just a start, just one small step, just one day. This is the way to pay our respect to the collectors worldwide, to the divers and to the adventurers out there. We gotta remember to live the moment, go for it, enjoy and take each day as it comes. One more day. Live and love. “Better starts now” as Citizen says.
This watch is designed and made for the vintage citizen community. To be built in Finland by Pookwatches.
So, without further ado, let us introduce the VCW Skin Diver!
