Diving With the Aquastar Deepstar II

Post by koimaster » March 28th 2022, 3:50pm

Putting aside our differences with a POS we have had a hate/hate relationship with, this forum allows users to make up their own minds on watches.
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.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
