    I assume this is a Valjoux 7750. Many people made day/date Valjoux 7750s.

    Heuer did act as the outsourced vendor for several private label brands such as Torneau and Tiffany. They usually have Heuer casebacks.

    Nice looking watch and the case is pretty massive. This case demands a bracelet and not a strap.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Nice Aquastar can't help you with any info because that the first time I seen that Aquastar model.I own a Aquastar benthos 500 and it has a massive case but I think that one you got is a little bigger I like the case,dial.and hands I like the way it looks You look at the stuff Aquastar makes today I wish they would go back to the way the use to make a watch it's like they lost there way.

    Thanks guys! I really like the faded dial, gives it a realy classy vintage look!

    I'd like to have a Benthos! Is there a cheaper design alternative to the Benthos.....I mean this chrono I own from Aquastar has been built with nearly identical design by other watchmakers...

    Cheers!
