FS: Vintage Lorenz Aquastar Diver 63, Ref 1903

These vintage Aquastars are incredible enough as-is; here's a Lorenz example, made specifically for the Italian market, which don't come up in this condition much.

CASE: 37mm (without signed crown) is in excellent original unpolished shape. The caseback's worn, but the reference and serial numbers are visible with a 10x loupe. The original crystal is in very good shape, with no crazing or cracks. The inner bezel rotates with the crown pushed in, as it should.

DIAL+HANDS: Pictures are the better description, but: this is in all original, unpolished shape. The hands are just barely lighter than the dial's lumeplots, which is common—this is identical to my Scubapro example; this has not been relumed. Everything glows and fades identically. Incredible condition.

MVMT: The A.Schild movement's running great; a new gasket's been installed, but otherwise it's not been touched or serviced while I've owned this. Keeps excellent time, the date flips as it should (and can be pseudo-quickset by adjusting back and forth from 2100 to 100), but again, I don't know the service history.

Price is $800. Happy to work out shipping+payment method with the buyer, and happy to answer any questions or provide as many references as requested. Thanks for looking, and for Jeff/CT for the space.
