Aquastar Geneve Diver 60 from the 1960s
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 1960s this classic model is fitted in a perfectly sized, well-preserved 36 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 date is set at 3 o´clock. The crown is original with the appropriate Aquastar-logo. This WRISTCLASSIC is powered by a calibre AS 1701 automatic movement, running strong and keeping time well. The watch comes with a handcrafted leatherstrap which is in an unworn condition. This Aquastar model 60 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.
