Tissot’s Seastar collection is one of the most popular with fans of the brand. The watches in this family are precisely engineered to be companions for avid adventurers with a passion for exploring the depths of the ocean. The Tissot Seastar 2000 collection is the latest addition to the Seastar family. They are said to be the ultimate Seastar models as they maintain all of the well-loved qualities of the Seastar whilst introducing several desirable features that have not been seen before in the collection.
The Tissot Seastar 2000 Collection
The newest additions to the Seastar collection come in three different dial shades, and all share the same core characteristics. An automatic Powermatic 80.111 movement powers each of these watches. This movement uses 23 jewels and a patented Nivachron balance spring to power the watch, providing each watch with a power reserve of up to 80 hours. All three of the Tissot Seastar 2000 collection watches feature an exhibition case back made of sapphire crystal to allow to wearer to view and enjoy the movement.
The watches are all water resistant up to 2000 feet (60 bar). It is the water resistance rating that gives these new models their name. All of the watches are ISO6425 certified diver’s watches, meaning that they can be safely worn for professional diving without fear of damage. Each model features a screw down crown and case back to aid with water resistance.
Each of the models in the Tissot Seastar 2000 collection features a black, robust, unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel. Ceramic is a very desirable material in watchmaking due to its strength and attractive appearance. All three watches have a stainless steel case that measures 46mm in diameter and 15.8mm in thickness.
The New Watches
This model features a black dial that is detailed with a wave inspired pattern to evoke feelings of the ocean. The dial exhibits Superluminova dot and baton indices and silver hands with Superluminova elements. This ensures that the dial can be read easily in the dark or underwater. A date aperture is positioned at 6 o’clock for optimal timekeeping. Scratch resistant sapphire glass protects the dial. This watch is secured to the wrist using a black rubber strap that fastens with a standard buckle.
The deep blue shade and wave pattern of this dial make this watch feel at home deep beneath the waves. The dial can be read quickly in low light conditions due to the Superluminova indicies and hands. A date aperture keeps the wearer on excellent time. Domed and antireflective sapphire crystal protect the dial which allows the dial to be read under bright light. A stainless steel bracelet completes this watch, giving it a classic diver’s watch look.
Green is a very on-trend colour in the horological industry currently. It also makes the perfect choice for the dial of a diver’s watch as it will make the wearer feel as though they always have a piece of the ocean with them. The perfect sea green shade of this dial works flawlessly with the embossed wave pattern. The Superluminova hands and indices create a pleasant contrast to the dial, as does the date aperture positioned at 6 o’clock. Scratch-resistant sapphire glass ensures that this watch will retain its brand-new look for years to come. A stainless steel bracelet secures this model on the wrist.
