TISSOT Seastar 1000

TISSOT Seastar 1000
With its imposing design and its extremely sturdy case that is water-resistant to 300 m, the Seastar 1000 by Tissot continues the brand’s incursion into the diving world. This chronograph combines the performances of an automatic movement with the noble aesthetic appeal of a timepiece that defies the oceans and features a number of nods to the maritime world. A unidirectional rotating bezel, a watchstrap with diving buckle as well as hands and markers coated with Superluminova to ensure perfect readability. Each model also has a helium valve for saturation diving - an additional step that Tissot is taking in the underwater depths, a field in which it is gaining ever increasing expertise.
