Idioms are common uses of expression that depict a certain wisdom whose meaning would be lost in translation in simple, straightforward words. “Time will tell”, for instance, encompasses a philosophical depth otherwise unreachable by other expressions. For Virginia’s Commonwealth (cmonwealth) , time will tell a few things. First, that the classic diver’s watch silhouette is classic for a few reasons– amongst time, a sense of timelessness that can traverse through style, generation, space and, well, time. This season, Commonwealth is resuscitating one of the most iconic military timepieces, the Diver’s Watch with an urban sensibility.
The Commonwealth Diver’s Watch set to release this weekend on Jun 12 features a simple black face dial dressed in the Commonwealth logo and quote “Time Will Tell”. In terms of specifications, the watch is built to last as it is designed to outlast time, with a stainless steel casing, rotatable unidirectional bezel, scratch-resistant glass face, Japanese movement, 20mm nylon NATO band and 100m water-resistance. The watch comes in two colorways, purple and black to suit those who are looking for something with a little extra oomph for the city, and for those who revel in subtlety.
