Frat. G. Watch Aquarius ref. 202 Decompression Diver

SOLD

Brand: Frat. G. Watch, a private label for Aquarius

Model: Aquarius ref. 202 Decompression Diver Automatic with Date (Exotic "Rainbow" Dial); Swiss Made

Case: Solid stainless steel case with screw-down back is approximately 37mm excluding the original unsigned winding crown

Strap: Vintage 19mm hunter green nylon strap with polished hardware

Movement: ETA cal. 2454 self-winding automatic movement (25 jewels) with date display at 3 o'clock; 18,000 BPH; Swiss Made

Features: Stunning original silver sunburst dial with exotic multi-color decompression scales (for diving); original rotating bezel displays elapsed time (i.e. during dives); date display at 3 o'clock; solid stainless steel "waterproof" case; rare model

Condition: Nice original condition overall with minor honest wear consistent with age and use; sharp stainless steel case appears to be nearly unpolished with the original finishes in tact; crisp screw-down caseback with a few minor toolmarks and all printing clearly visible; gorgeous original decompression dial with vibrant colors throughout; original luminous hands and bezel triangle appear to have been re-lumed long ago; original rotating dive bezel has lightly faded to an attractive "ghost" grey hue

Other: The exotic dial on this rare Aquarius Diver is similar to that of the most coveted decompression diver in existence: the Mido Powerwind Diver 1,000 Feet. Although this Aquarius is even more rare than the Mido, it can be purchased for a small fraction of the price (primarily due to the relatively unknown brand name). The "rainbow" dial is absolutely incredible and displays early air-diving decompression tables for one stop at 3 meters while diving at depths of 25, 30, 35, and 40 meters - It doesn't get much cooler than this for diving aficionados!
