Aquastar Reemerges With An Homage To Its Original ‘Deepstar’ Chronograph

From Seiko and Zodiac, all the way to genre mainstays like Omega, Tudor, and Longines, the water-savvy world of wristwear has become something of a staple for many expeditionary men who want to add a dash of function to their daily arsenal. Despite the industry’s overabundance of ocean-inspired models, few can hold a candle to Aquastar’s original Deepstar — an instrumental chronograph built for the sea.

In 1965, the Deepstar was introduced — almost exclusively — for the diving community. Designed by sailor and ocean enthusiast, Frédéric Robert, this small-batch chronograph would make its way onto the wrists of a select few, due to its rarity. While the original never received commercial success due to its limited availability, the brand has finally returned to supply the retro wonder to the masses, courtesy of the reevaluated 2020 Deepstar “Re-Edition.” Like the vintage model, the Re-Edition boasts an interesting stainless steel case and integrated lugs, conceding only in size at a larger and more substantial 40.5mm. An upgraded, 200-meter water resistance complements the watch’s functional acuity, allowing divers to calculate required decompression times via its inner and outer scales. At its heart, a modern movement from La Joux-Perret makes its debut. Head to Aquastar’s website to check out the revived model, which is currently listed for sale at $3,590.
