Alsta Revives The Nautoscaph Watch Worn By Richard Dreyfuss In ‘JAWS’

Over the years, Alsta has reproduced some of its most iconic wristwear pieces. From film-focused mainstays to functional divers, the brand has continuously enamored the watch world’s most enthusiastic collectors. But, within the company’s catalog lies an example neigh paralleled — the stylish steel offering known as the Nautoscaph Superautomatic.

The Nautoscaph Superautomatic is most notable for its inclusion within one of Hollywood’s most important cinematic endeavors, JAWS. Within the film, it adorns the wrist of Richard Dreyfuss’s on-screen character, Matt Hooper — a young oceanographer hired by protagonist Martin Brody to take part in his shark-hunting outfit. Throughout the years, various iterations of the Nautoscaph Superautomatic have surfaced, but the 38mm steel cushion model that you see here, complete with its Seiko NH35A automatic movement, Super-LumiNova dial, and unidirectional bezel, is a direct observation of Dreyfuss’s wrist-worn timekeeper. The remastered model features a handful of new additions, including a stainless steel bracelet, an etched shark icon on its clasp, and an anti-magnetic, shock-resistant construction that’s privy to divable depths of 300-meters. Only 1,975 examples (demarcating the year of JAWS’ release) are slated for production. Head to Huckberry to pick up one of your own for $1,150.
