No watch fan needs an introduction to the world's most recognizable diving chronograph, the Aquastar Deepstar.
The big-eye subdial. The famous "propeller" seconds hand. Just. So. Cool.
Made world famous by legendary oceanographer Jacques Cousteau. Just Google it and you'll be inundated.
The solid stainless steel case is a hefty 38mm wide, excluding the signed Aquastar crown, by 48mm from lug to lug.
The tropical chocolate dial is blazingly intense. The color is as vibrant as I've ever seen on one of these, and so is the patina. This watch has lived. There's blemishing on the subdials and around the markers, a typical feature of tritium-dial watches. Take a close look at the photos. If you want a mint example, keep walking.
Under the hood is the Valjoux 23 manual movement, the sign of the first iteration of this class. It is keeping excellent time.
Comes on an NSA bracelet that fits a 7.5 inch wrist comfortably.
The prices on these are soaring. You'll see why.
An amazing find, ready for your wrist. And, as a bonus, comes with the long, ocean-blue Aquastar box.
