Lot Essay

Based out of France, Baltic Watches have carved themselves a niche in producing watches inspired by the second half of the 20th century, with a range of genuinely attractive references that have proven themselves as hugely popular with watch enthusiasts around the world. After the roaring success of the Bicompax chronograph release, they immediately began work on their vision of a diving watch, which resulted in this Baltic Watches Aquascaphe Prototype. While several elements of the design were changed for the final production model, this prototype expresses the no-nonsense restraint of a vintage tool watch that was built with a specific purpose and intent. The 3, 6, 9 style of dial was let go in favour of arrow markers at the cardinal points of the dial in the eventual production piece, but the prototype design reminds of the legendary tool watches of the '50s and '60s that are so collectible today. It is through the enormous generosity of the team at Baltic Watches that we are able to offer this Aquascaphe Prototype for sale, and it has also been customised with an engraved caseback to communicate the cause it is supporting, featuring the "Watch & Act!" logo and koala. We give our thanks to Baltic Watches for reaching out and offering such a special watch in their own company's history in an effort to fund raise fundraise for the Australian bushfire crisis.

IMPORTANT NOTICES TO PROSPECTIVE BIDDERS
Time+Tide Watches makes no representation or warranty regarding any outside Valuation on offer. Prospective bidders should note the date and purpose for which the valuation was produced and all buyers must make their own assessment as to an item's value.
Where possible precise weights, measures and grading are provided. However, since in many cases this is not possible, buyers should not rely on any as being exact. When a weight is described as "approximately" it is in the opinion of the auctioneer an estimation of the weight of the gemstones in their settings and should therefore be considered as an approximation. This information is given as a guide and prospective bidders should satisfy themselves with regard to this information as to its accuracy.
It is the buyer's responsibility to obtain any export or import licenses and/or certificates as well as any other statutory documentation prior to shipping. The inability of import of any such items shall not justify cancellation or rescission of the sale contract or any delay in payment. Please check with the specialist department if you are uncertain as to whether a lot is subject to any restrictions on importation or exportation.
