The Seatime reference line comes to us from the golden era of dive watches, the 1970s. Although the Seatime is not a super-compressor, it features an excellent inner rotating bezel, much like the super-compressors of the era.

This Aquastar Seatime Ref. 1000 in specific is a very special variant. The dial is co-branded with the famous tire company "Pirelli" with their signature logo and name on the dial. Co-branded dials are loved among collectors as it is a general fact that they are some of the rarest of they're reference family and have an added value for being unique. This Pirelli co-branded Aquastar Seatime is perfect for both the watch collector and petrol head.

The cushion style stainless steel case is unpolished retaining strong factory brushing and little to no wear from use. The case retains its original Aquastar signed crown. The caseback exhibits some wear from being opened.


The stunning silver "Pirelli" logo dial is in excellent vintage condition. The inner rotating blue bezel remains is in excellent condition as well, and adds a soft touch of color to the watch. The original tritium lume markers have a nice ivory patina and show no degradation under U.V. light inspection. The original tritium hands match the dial perfectly and exhibit no degradation when inspected under U.V. light. The blue sweep seconds hand is original to the watch and coordinates nicely with the inner bezel as well.


None. The watch is running at spec, previously service history is unknown.
