Anyone with a chronograph in mind which has a different oomph must travel back to the Tissot stall at Baselworld 2013 and catch a glimpse of the Seastar line. Tissot reintroduced the discontinued line of watches but this time, they don’t even resemble their ancestors from the 1960s. Earlier, the Seastar was a line of modestly designed, waterproof watches; today version looks sharper and smarter.
It’s just the Tissot Seastar 1000 Chronograph that gets the spotlight here; if you want to know about the plain Seastar 1000, you can read it here. Obviously, the 48mm diver w/ chronograph complication looks far better and is the best choice if you don’t want to buy yet another entry-level mechanical timepiece. It is also a sound choice for them not willing to cross the 1K border.
The Seastar 1000 Chronograph is Swiss-made. It’s fully stainless steel and there’s also a helium valve which says it can be taken even for deep diving (1000 feet max). The sapphire crystal enhances the view of the nicely done details underneath (on the dial). The rest are definitive and sporty!
While one might argue that many different brands have jumped on the bandwagon of shelling out timepieces with more or less the same specs, but one thing they are missing is – not at this price point. With Tissot, quality comes as a standard part of the package and Seastar 1000 chronograph is a state-of-the-art mechanical chronograph. It’s a unique timepiece with the ratio of price and quality beautifully set.
TheTissot Seastar 1000 chronograph is a massive piece of stainless-steel housing the ETA C01.211 mechanical automatic movement, which has proven its mettle to the watch afficianados the world over. Still, it’s a pertinent question to someone owning a Tissot for the first time: Is it still going to be as nice few years from now?
There’s definitely some amount of luck factor but otherwise, this one doesn’t stand the chance of looking dated any soon. This means you’ll be able to wear it into the future without looking funny or silly. This one has a neutral shade; this color scheme is well known to keep the years kinder.
So, now to the big question: Who must, ideally, go for this watch? The Seastar 1000 chronograph is full of options that are going to make both pro-s and amateurs jump with glee. It meets the specs for both recreational and pro-level diving and water sports. The Seastar 1000 chrono shall stay with you till you become a real, full-fledged diver; if you want, it will serve you well beyond.
