Off the Cuff: Spinnaker Croft Mid-Size

Spinnaker does a good job of resurrecting obscure moments and personalities from the past to instil their pieces with character and flavour. The Croft Mid-Size references the 1967 accomplishment of a US Navy diving instructor by the name of Robert Croft--who became the first man to ever free dive beyond a depth of 200 feet. Ultimately, the vintage, skin-diver styling of the Croft, fit well with the man and the moment they are meant to celebrate.
