Tissot Seastar 1000 Chronograph
February 18, 2011 § Leave a comment
Tissot started designing classic timepieces back 1853 and has served as the official time keeper for major sporting events in motorcycling and downhill skiing, in addition to sponsoring Lotus, and Renault’s Formula 1 teams. Located in LeLocle, Switzerland, the watchmaker’s quality remains unmistakable, and the all-new Tissot Seastar 1000 Chronograph stunner, is no exception. Unlike its predecessor, it isn’t a “pseudo-diver”, thanks to a water resistance rating of 300 meters, a Swiss automatic Calibre C01.211 movement, helium release valve, sapphire crystal, unidirectional bezel, Superluminova coated hands/markers, and a diver’s extension clasp. It’s also not for the weak-wristed at 48mm. Sold in sports white, with blue markers, or our favorite orange, both options come with a classy 316L stainless steel bracelet and a sporty rubber strap with deployment clasp. We think it looks positively gorgeous and ready to take on the executive office (if you don’t mind rolling up your sleeves) or the depths of the Great Barrier Reef.
