The Ocean Star is a real classic. It is manufactured since 1959 - initially with 3 or 4 hour markers (with/without date) like this sample, and since ca. 1964 with the still today applied dial design (but later with ETA movements). A reason for the success is the still used "Aquadura" sealing system, which even holds tight reliably with pulled crown.
