Why We Love it

There is no doubt that dive watches hold a special place in the hearts of many collectors, ourselves included. 

In fact, Analog/Shift was founded nearly ten years ago with its eyes set squarely on vintage divers. With their simple designs and robust movements, the tool watches of the 1960s and 1970s were built to accompany the adventurer across the globe and to keep time at its greatest heights, as well as within its darkest depths. Yet for every Rolex Submariner, Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, or Omega Seamaster, there were scores of other lesser-known names that ooze charm and merit consideration from the vintage watch enthusiast.

The Seatime from Aquastar is one such example. This particular Seatime, a Reference 1000, features a 38.5mm stainless steel cushion case, a matte black luminous dial with aged tritium indices and handset, an inner rotating timing bezek, a signed crown, an acrylic crystal, and a screw back case. 

In very good condition throughout, it’s a chunky throwback to a time when SCUBA divers truly relied upon their watches.

Brand Story

+
Aquastar is one of the many watch companies that proliferated just before the Quartz Crisis. Founded in 1962 by veteran SCUBA diver Frédéric Robert, Aquastar—as the name suggests—took the needs of aquatic sportsmen as its guiding principles. Drawing on a patent filed in 1958 by Aquastar’s parent company, JeanRichard, Aquastar introduced the brand’s first dive watch: the JeanRichard Aquastar 60.

Watches produced by JeanRichard under the Aquastar line were retailed under many brand names, from JeanRichard to Duward, which was primarily used in Spain; however, the line became so successful that it became the brand name by which the watches are best-known.

The company would go on to produce a varied line of purpose-built aquatic timepieces (including the first regatta timer), but there’s another watch that attracts the attention of vintage chronograph collectors, not least of all for its connection to Jacques Cousteau.
