I’m a fan. Bronze + blue dial $349 minus 15% OFF (sooner or later) = ~$298 for a bronze watch. I can’t say no.

There's nothing up on Venturo's website or social media but Watch Report's IG account is showing they will be starting pre-orders for a 40mm Skindiver later this month. Venturo watches is owned and run by the same people that make Gruppo Gamma.
