I picked up a Benthos Aquastar 500 in pretty rough condition. Received it today and it may have promise. The watch is keeping excellent time and seems strong. The crystal and bezel insert are thrashed but the dial and hands look pristine underneath. The case has scratches but they are shallow and I think it can be cleaned up.

Anybody got a spare bezel insert

Wish me luck

Re: the 500 and 1k are some of my favorite vintage divers...

Kinda reminds me of a Doxa, of which I could never afford... :( lol

Those Benthos are cool in any condition.|> That should scrub up nicely, as we Brits would say. Looking forward to the before and after pics.:)
