Ref: 1903 + vintage tropic strap
Aquastar was founded circa 1962, and they were focused on watches meant to go in the water. The 63 was released in the mid-1960s and was marketed towards real divers with its 200 meter/600 feet depth rating (though we do not recommend getting vintage watches wet today).
This model was seen as one of the best divers you could find in the 1960s, thanks to its impressive water resistance and inner rotating bezel activated directly by the crown. The crown was also used to wind the watch, so if you wanted to both wind the watch and set the bezel, you would need to wind it first and then set.
Because of the desirability, these models were sold in specialized dive shops. Priced lower than Rolex and Tudor, the 63 became a bestseller and was known for its practicality. These Aquastars are not usually in such good condition because they were used by real divers.
This model is very interesting for many reasons : The tropical dial is very appealing ; all Tritium plots are present ; case is unpolished ; crown is the original one with the star ; the reference is a rarely seen ‘1903’.
