Rainbow Divers

One of my early new-old-stock Orient Automatic is the colorful SK 3-star Diver which I affectionately call the Rainbow Diver. I don't think she is an ISO-rated during that era although the colorful bezel served the purpose of countdown time for diving at different depths.

By chance and at the same shop I purchased the bronze dial version, I spotted another new-old-stock piece but with a blue dial. The blue dial reminds me of the color of the ocean and without hesitation, I bought it in a heartbeat. Just look at the way that blue dial reflects light!
