    In 1962 the Aquastar brand was founded by Frédéric Robert in Geneva, Switzerland, and initially introduced as a sub-brand of the Swiss watch company JeanRichard SA. The brand was not only born from the passion of one man for the sub-marine world but was also reflecting a period where, for the first time, the sub-marine world became of interest. Already in 1958 the JeanRichard company had applied for a patent for a wrist watch with a turnable bezel. This patent let shortly after to the model JeanRichard Aquastar 60. At first the Aquastar watches had both the names JeanRichard (or the JeanRichard logo) and Aquastar on the dial. But soon this was dropped, and it became just Aquastar. With this first experience the development of other water sports watches followed, which made Aquastar the most important manufacturer in this field.
     

    With the Aquastar watches becoming very popular, the company name changes into Aquastar SA. Under the direction of the experienced diver Frédéric Robert (who later also worked for Omega where he developed some of the most important models in the Seamaster series in the 1960’s), famous Aquastar watches that are still used today saw the light, such as:

    • The Aquastar Atoll, a regular diving watch with a ‘normal’ rotating bezel.
    • The Aquastar Seatime, with an internal bi-directional bezel with diver scale controlled by the same crown that sets the time.
    • The Aquastar Benthos 500, with the case made of one single seamless piece of steel, the first diving watch water-resistant up to 500 m which put the diving watches really on the map!
    • And the Aquastar Regate, the first Regatta Yachttimer wrist watch with the 5-dot countdown.
