AQUASTAR GENEVE Benthos 500 Vintage Diver

 

Here we have a beautiful Aquastar Geneve diverwatch, a wonderful example of a classic and sportive timepiece. Aquastar Geneve is not a very well known brand, but what it lacks in recognition, it makes up for in this stunning design. This beautiful vintage watch comes with a crisp case in great condition with sharp edges and only light signs of use. Dating to the 1970s this classic model is fitted in a perfectly sized, well-preserved 43 mm case. It offers a fairly wide-set bezel that gives this watch a nice presence. The dial is allover in clean condition and the luminous material on both the dial and hands have aged to a very pleasing deep yellow patina. The simple Aquastar-logo alongside the indexes and beautiful hands are harmonious and well balanced. The crowns are original. This WRISTCLASSIC is powered by a automatic movement, running strong and keeping time well. The watch comes with a handcrafted leatherstrap which is in an unworn condition. This Aquastar is a rare timepiece and a true WRISTCLASSIC with perfect proportions, timeless styling and a great reference to the diving-sport. This is the real deal - everything you would want in a vintage diver. Aquastar was founded 1962 in Geneva on the lake Leman side. Aquastar started off with different collections of diving watches. Participating in various diving expeditions, Aquastar became quickly a known and respected producer of diving watches. Further on Aquastar started to produce watches for the sailing and yacht races. The result of it was to launch on the market the first specific regatta watch.
