I've been collecting and playing with watches for over 20 years now.. I've owned just about anything worth owning under $10K. I can say, without a doubt, for the money, the Aquatco Oyster is nicest dive watch I've ever owned. No exaggeration. Clearly in the world of micros, they have the advantage that they ARE the factory and they make watches for many other micros. So.. basically, the watch's retail isn't marked up a second time before you buy it.
As in the title.. this is 31 of 99 in the black colorway. I don't know that this really adds value to it, but its kind of cool, right?
I have 19 pieces in my watch box, this is one of my favorites to wear but I have an agreement with the wife and the Aquatico doesn't meet the rules.. It will ship in 99% plus condition. The factory carbon strap was never worn. Box and warranty card signed by the owner of the company.

No cheap painted markers, applied and lumed markers, machined dial (not cheap painted either) lumed ceramic bezel insert..The case back is nicely rounded so the watch sits PERFECTLY on the wrist.. even on my 6.75" wimpy wrist! 22mm lugs give you endless strap options. I admittedly ran the watch on an isofrane and it was so comfy!
The Canvas strap in the pics is not available and will not come with the watch.
OK... if you have actually read this far.. you deserve the pics..$250.00 SHIPPED in the USA. No trades please.
