Anyone have any thoughts on Aquastar's new Deepstar II?

These watches have 37mm x 46mm x 12mm stainless steel cases,
300m WR, domed AR coated sapphire crystals, dual-scale rotating
bezels with neat con- decompression table calculator, blue, black,
and bray dials with eye-catching hands, markers, and sub-dials,
Sellita caliber SW290, black rubber tropic straps, seatbelt NATO
straps, and beads of rice stainless steel bracelets as well.














Timezone, and Aquastar with much more...

This watch looks fantastic. It’ll hold its value well too. Just so darn small, 37mm for a diver with such a wide bezel means it’ll wear even smaller with a small dial opening. Lug length will help a bit.

(y) I’m glad you like it Brice, and yes, was thinking about that
case size, but then the long lugs. ..That might make the case
feel bigger than 37mm right?! 😉 Between the lugs, along with
good sized crown, it could make the watch feel quite a bit larger
perhaps.

Want to thank you for giving your two cents on these Brice !!

I’ve been very tempted but size has held me back.

Happy thanksgiving Tom

I like the small seconds on a dive watch. Great vintage dials and domed crystal give great contrast. But then comes the totally useless bezel for show. No one can even read these things let alone actually use them under water. I mean, French Navy dive tables... Me no hablas.
And last of all, all told, it looks like a Doxa dial on a 62MAS case.
And 2K... I don't think so.

You know sir, this might be a watch that they will add more versions,
as well as variations in size of in the future. And even if they do not
add new sizes, you just might see someone out there get one who
will give you some insight. Insight on the watch's size, and whether
it might work for you. :cool: But have to say, it would really be nice if
watch brans just made the watches in a couple sizes at least. That
way you, or we wouldn't have to wonder about things.

It really is a stunner right Forza?! (y) ..That small seconds is really
something to see right?! ..Plus the markers are unbelievably nice
as well. Not to mention, something we don't see every day on a
dive watch. It's the same thing with the bezel style, which although
tough to read, is just plain cool really, as well as fun imho. And to be
honest sir, I don't even really use my regular bezels on my watches. 😊
(let's keep that between us)

Oh, almost forgot Forza, you are right on about the looks of this one
in comparison to Doxa, and the 62MAS. 😉I guess a lot of watches
had similar details, and styles years ago.

Wow, just is THE best talking to you guys about this, or these !!
..THX so much for sharing your thoughts !!!
