Ratio FreeDiver Professional 500M Sapphire Automatic (32BJ202A-ORG) | The funky Tangerine-dream diver watch
The Ratio Free Diver Professional 500M Sapphire Automatic (32BJ202A-ORG) is built in the ways of the 1964 DOXA watches sent to Switzerland’s Lake Neuchatel for divers to test. That was a rainbow of bright colors; the simple objective was finding out the best hue to use underwater. Orange stood out, which is officially, tangerine. White, black, blue – they are not as much a Sunny-side-up piece like this one.
Facts before figures
Orange has long been associated with enthusiasm, elation, warmth and creativity. Depressive states can be reverted with determination with the use of colour orange; it builds attraction and encouragement while stimulating to success. It’s a hot color that kind of radiates amidst cold waters. Psychologically, it generates a sensation of heat. In its literal sense: It’s HOT!
