The Aquastar Deepstar II returns with a gorgeous new pink salmon dial

Earlier this year, we became the first collaborative partner with Aquastar when we released our Ice-Blue Limited Edition. The response was overwhelmingly positive, and we felt it needed a fantastic follow-up. Now, we’re pleased to introduce a follow-up edition with the Fratello × Aquastar Deepstar II Pink Salmon Limited Edition — only for pre-order in the Fratello Shop! You won't have to wait for long, as we aim to deliver the first pieces within four weeks of the pre-order window closing.

The new Fratello × Aquastar Deepstar II Pink Salmon Limited Edition sports some key differences versus our first release and the serial production models. The most obvious change is the gorgeous sunburst pink salmon dial. This dial has many faces and encapsulates hues of pink, salmon, champagne, gray, and more, depending on the environment. It was key for us not to choose a color too pink or too salmon for that matter, and Aquastar perfectly delivered. Once again, we chose bright white Super-LumiNova in lieu of aged lume. It’s crisp and classy. Finally, note the use of black sub-seconds hand and dial printing. We made these choices to ensure ultimate legibility and usability.

True to the classic skin diver blueprint

While we made some cosmetic changes to our Deepstar II Pink Salmon, we retained its original footprint. This is one of the most comfortable watches we’ve tried and is the perfect unisex diver. So why alter a good thing? The vintage skin diver case comes in 316L stainless steel and has a diameter of 36.75mm. The lug-to-lug is 46mm, and the thickness is just 13mm, including the domed sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating. Of course, with 200 meters of water resistance, it has a signed screw-down crown and screw-in case back.

The Deepstar II includes its signature bidirectional external bezel with a “no-decompression” scale. It’s a nod to 60s recreational diving and helps divers to calculate their maximum depth time during a dive so as not to require one or more decompression stops on their ascent to the surface. These stops allow the body to safely and slowly expel dissolved gases (primarily nitrogen) from the blood. Without decompression stops, these gases would expand, turning into bubbles and causing decompression sickness and, possibly, even death. Today, a dive computer helps calculate these stops, but it’s nice that Aquastar has kept with tradition on its watches.

A tool you can rely on

Underneath the unique, star-shaped case back of the Deepstar II Pink Salmon, we find the Sellita SW290-1 automatic movement. This is a trusted and reliable movement with a sub-second display. Most watches that use the caliber also feature a date, but that wouldn’t be consistent with the Aqustar design ethos. Aquastar has removed the “phantom date position” to create a clean, properly executed package — a detail that many other brands choose to ignore.

A beautiful beads-of-rice bracelet

The Fratello × Aquastar Deepstar II Pink Salmon Limited Edition will come exclusively with a 19mm beads-of-rice bracelet. It has a signed safety clasp with micro-adjust functionality (using a pin or spring bar tool). Plus, there are plenty of removable screwed links, too, for the perfect fit. The bracelet has both matte and polished finishing, which allows it to be worn by the water, at the office, and or anywhere in between.
