The Quartz Crisis was the great upheaval in the watch industry caused by the advent of quartz watches in the 1970s. Aquastar was one of the brands that held on through the crisis by making big changes, transitioning away from mechanical dive watches into making mostly quartz watches themselves. In 2020 they were relaunched by Rick Marei, the man famous for the rejuvenation of the Doxa, Aquadive and Tropic strap brands. You can read all about the brand’s relaunch and their first release here and here. Today, the brand is back with its sophomore offering, the Aquastar Deepstar II. Smaller and with a time-only movement, this is the watch that could have existed if the brand had continuous activity. We got our hands on an early model for some scuba diving and initial thoughts, so let’s get into it.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
