From my private collection comes this 100% original early 1960’s Fregatte Aqua-Sport Automatic diver.
Does the model seem familiar? Correct! It is the same as the Jean Richard Aquastar 60, also sold as the Aquastar 60.

This watch is in an absolutely brilliant condition! The stainless steel case is oversized for a sixties diver at 38mm and therefor very wearable today.
The case is unpolished and after more than 55 years the brushing on top and some on the side is still clearly visible, however for an amateur iphone photographer like me hard to capture.
The watch has got a unidirectional steel bezel and a screw down crown.
The dial is high gloss black and the tritium lume has turned an exceptionally beautiful brown.

The reliable A. Schildt 1701 automatic movement runs like a charm, the date switches correctly, and the watch keeps good time, please check the timegrapher photo for all the information.
No service history.

The watch comes on a matching brand new vintage leather strap

The watch will be well packed and shipped insured and registered

Eur. 395,- excl shipping.

Diameter without crown: 38mm
Length: 47.1mm
Thickness: 11.5mm incl. domed crystal
Caliber: A. Schildt 1701 Automatic
Domed Acrylic Crystal
Lug Width: 20 mm

I am located in The Netherlands
I am a collector who sometimes has to sell a watch from his collection so that is does not get too large, therefor I am a private seller, I am a regular at Uhrforum, WUS and the dutch "horlogeforum", here is some feedback:[thread]=15247&o=relevance
