    JeanRichard Diver and O&W chrono estate sale finds

    I picked up this Jean Richard Aquastar diver and O&W chrono. I assume the chrono has a Valjoux of some kind. Will post a photo of the movement. Both are running, though the chrono pushers do not work. I think the Aquastar is an earlier model of that line, but still doing research. I've found a few with that bezel and those hands, but it's that combo appears to be less common. I plan to keep the diver and might sell the chrono to pay for diver overhaul/bracelet.

    Chrono looks in a better condition at least from the front :)

    Thanks all. Indeed, I feel fortunate to have found these gems. The chrono sold, and the Aquastar is at the watchmaker's getting an overhaul. Will show before/after pics.

    I have a sibling of your Ollech & Wajs chrono, a 1966 Dreffa Aviation Chronograph which is powered by a Valjoux 92
