Since our earliest days, Aquastar has been a proud supporter of pioneers and champions of the sea from marine scientists and explorers, to athletes pushing the limits of human endurance. For 2023, we are thrilled to announce our support of Italian freediving champion and world record holder @simonaauteri who joins a long list of nautical legends like Philippe Cousteau, Jacques Mayol, and Dr. Genie Clark all of whom depended on Aquastar instruments for their adventures. Welcome to the family Simona!
ABOUT AQUASTAR WATCHES
The Aquastar legacy began in 1962, as the brainchild of entrepreneurial diver & sailor named Frederic Robert who sought to develop watches and specialized instruments exclusively for oceanic activities, ranging from sailing and sport diving to professional scientific excursions and underwater exploration – all with the ultimate goal of making all aquatic exploits safer. A prolific diver, sportsman, and innovator, every Aquastar watch designed and produced by Robert in the 1960s held groundbreaking patents not yet deployed in wristwatch applications. These patents included water-resistant crown designs, inner rotating bezels, and special “no decompression” calculation bezels that could be used for multiple dives – all unique functions tailored to a professional diver’s exacting needs.
In continuing Aquastar’s rich traditions of markedly functional, purpose-built dive watches, modern Aquastar name has been revived by another Swiss watch industry innovator and disruptor: Rick Marei, who helped bring global notoriety and widespread sales success for another legendary dive watch story: DOXA Watches ®. The modern Aquastar catalog is being developed around the brand’s most iconic archival reference: the endearing Deepstar Chronograph, unique for its mono-compax time display and innovative “no decompression” bezel.
