A host of details give this watch irresistible charm.
The first detail that catches the eye is none other than the dial with its gorgeous linen finish in different shades of gray. An astonishing contrast is created with the typical “diver” markers thanks to the tritium which has taken on a beige-yellow hue with the passing years.
Other unique details, which also give the watch meaning, can be seen by turning the watch over. Do you recognize the 18-pointed star shape on the case back?
One only needs to open the watch and look at the signature “Aquastar” on the oscillating weight to remember that it was in 1962 in Geneva that Aquastar Instruments SA was born, a sub-brand of the Swiss watchmaker JeanRichard SA.
