1960s Aquastar Deepstar “Big Eye” first generation

Worn by Jean-Jacques Cousteau’s diving team on Calypso expedition, this rare Deepstar, branded Lorenz, for the Italian market, is a true rarity. The model itself is hard to find, but such a striking patina make it unique and highly desirable.

It features an unpolished and thick stainless steel case, the famous “Big Eye” minute counter, a contrasting white sweep second hand and this bronze-gold dial to die for.
