COOL~70s AQUASTAR/DUWARD 100M CANDY RED DIVE WATCH

Regular price $375.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A MEGA GROOVY 70s AQUASTAR-DUWARD DAY/DATE AUTOMATIC WITH NICE CANDY APPLE RED DIAL AND HANDSOME 2-TONE DAY/DATE WHEEL

 

  • CASE: CHUNKY ALL-STEEL CUSHION CASE MEASURING A LARGE 37.6mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING CROWN. THIS ONE IS A FUNKY AND ANGULAR DIVER CASE WITH A NICE WRIST PRESENCE.

 

  • DIAL: CANDY IS DANDY. CHECK OUT THAT CANDY APPLE RED COLORED SUNBURST DIAL. I LOVE THOSE NICE APPLIED STEEL MARKERS AND THOSE BROAD STEEL HANDS WITH THOSE WHITE STRIPS. DIAL HAS SOME MINOR AGE MARKS BUT OVERALL LOOKS FABULOUS AS CAN BE SEEN IN THE PHOTOS. I DIG THE 2-TONE DAY/DATE WINDOW WITH THE DAY IN SPANISH. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS AQUASTAR RUNS ON A ROBUST DUWARD SIGNED ETA 2788. WATCH KEEPS GOOD TIME. DAY IS NON-QUICKSET. BUT, THE DATE IS RAPIDLY CHANGED BY PULLING CROWN TO THE FIRST STOP.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN BUT THIS ONE IS A STRONG RUNNER  WITH STRONG AMPLITUDE ON THE TIMEGRAPHER.

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A PERIOD APPROPRIATE H-LINK STEEL BRACELET WHICH MAKES TOTAL SENSE ON THIS DUDE. BRACELET SHOULD ACCOMMODATE ANYWHERE FROM A 6.5"-8" WITH THE CLASP EXPANDER.  THIS IS 70s GROOVINESS AT ITS FINEST.  YOU RARELY SEE RED DIALS LIKE THIS, AND THIS ONE IS A STUNNER. AQUASTAR WAS ONE OF THE LEGENDARY DIVE WATCH BRANDS IN THE 50s-70s. DUWARD WAS ONE OF ITS SUBSIDIARY BRANDS THAT WAS MADE FOR THE LATIN MARKET BUT USED IDENTICAL CASES/DIALS/MOVEMENTS AS QUASAR.
