No, this is no Aquastar sub-brand. Ardath were a Dreyfuss-owned midcentury watchmaker with eclectic inspiration. The manufacture made classic Roman chronographs, Roskopf movements, Swiss lever three-handers, and even pioneered dual timezone displays in the Long Distance (a watch with one dial sharing two movements, one automatic and one manually wound . . .a bizarre thing look it up). Following trends of the 60s, Ardath starting buying in skin diver cases (from the same casemaker as Aquastar) and manufacturing highly-legible, luminous dials to create the Reefguard line. ... nis-diver/

Yep, the fun factor is very high on that watch.

I can easily understand someone thinking the price is fair. It's a good case for most interesting and entertaining watch in most rooms.
