I was just showing off a new acquisition (yellow dial diver) to a friend who proudly wears a watch with a bright yellow dial. He told me the story that he met a guy with a nice yellow dial diver watch back in the late 80's while backpacking through Europe. When he asked about the watch the guy suggested that it is definitely not the price range of watches he should be looking for. Now (as his means grew in the past 25 years) we both wonder, what was it? My friend said it looked a lot like the yellow Orient Mako but from the distance of 25 years or so, I think it is safe to say it had a bezel, and no more :). (I don't suppose they were making yellow face Orient Mako watches back then.)
Any prominent yellow face divers of the pre-late 80's era out there you can think of? The era and the color should narrow it down some. Shoot us a model, (or even better, a picture or a link) if you can. Thanks.
