A Classic Reborn
After lying dormant, Alsta has been wakened and it’s first timepiece for four decades is now available…
The Alsta Nautoscaph was immortalised in the 1975 classic movie Jaws
when it was the timepiece of choice of the Oceanographer Matt Hooper
played by Richard Dreyfuss.
Bringing this icon up to date
The Alsta Nautoscaph II is a dive watch that is styled to be worn on any occasion.
It has a unidirectional bezel which removes the risk of it being accidentally turned while underwater
which could result in a fatal miscalculation of dive time.
It is manufactured and tested to withstand the pressure of depths of 999ft which is 300m or 29atm.
The original Nautoscaph had 999ft on its dial which is a touch they loved and therefore kept.
The Nautoscaph II is also manufactured and tested to be anti-magnetic to a field strength of 4,800 A/m (ISO 764 compliant)
and shock-resistant to ISO 1413 standard.
The Alsta Nautoscaph II crown forms part of a triple-lock mechanism that ensures the water resistance of the watch.
The crown itself has distinctive crosshatch engraving which can often be found
on the crowns of super-compressor divers’ watches of the 1960s and 1970s.
The Alsta Nautoscaph II domed glass is a hardened mineral crystal which may scratch easier than sapphire crystal,
however, we chose mineral crystal for this watch as it is generally more resilient
and less brittle than sapphire and therefore is less likely to shatter and let water in.
Alsta made all possible technical, safety and performance improvements while retaining as much of the original design as possible.
Your beautifully-styled Alsta Nautoscaph II timepiece oozes the same romance and charm of the original.
The only difference being; modern-day materials and technology.
Like the original, it is powered by a quality automatic movement.
