The Tissot Seastar 1000 Quartz collection has great diver’s watches, however, the problem was always that the watches were either too small or too big on the wrist. The existing collection includes models with a 36mm case size or 45.5mm case size. Now, Tissot is addressing this issue by bringing out a 40mm version of this popular model. The 40mm version sits perfectly in the middle of the existing collection and will serve to suit a wider range of audience.
This case size was designed to be able to cater to both men and women that are after a simplistic yet bold watch that offers versatility while not skimping out on technical performance. Like the existing models in the collection, the new 40mm timepieces come with water resistance certification of 300m (1000ft). The watches are also equipped with uni-directional bezels so they can be easily operated underwater. An affordable timepiece that offers more than just looks!
Tissot is offering the new 40mm Seastar 1000 in three different variants. Each of the three models has been designed to offer exceptional clarity, especially under low light conditions thanks to the generous amounts of SuperlumiNova used for the hands and hour markers.
The first model is a classic. An ageless combination of black lacquered dial and black mineral bezel. The watch comes with contrasting white hour indices, and white indications on the bezel, while the hands are filled with white SuperLuminova. Out of the three variants, this offers the sharpest and easiest-to-read look.
The second variant is a blue lacquered dial with a blue mineral bezel. An elegant yet sophisticated look, the blue dial is combined with the white indications on the dial to offer that classic blue and white dial combo. Anyone that’s a fan of blue-dialed timepieces will be allured to this model thanks to its simplistic yet stark-contrasting design.
Tissot’s final model in this latest 40mm version is the black lacquered dial with the black mineral bezel, now with golden detailing. The side profile of the bezel (knurled edges) is done in gold, with the indications on the bezel being gold as well. The indications on the dial follow a similar suit, however, the white SuperlumiNova aids in adding that vivid contrasting effect to the dial.
These models are powered by high-quality Swiss-made Quartz movement. The movement provides exceptional precision and quality, ideal for those deep dives the watches are designed for. The timepieces also come equipped with Tissot’s EOL, which is an end-of-life indicator. This indicator will let the wearer know when to replace the battery, instead of waiting till it’s fully depleted. The case back of the watches comes engraved with the Seastar logo, along with the image of a Seahorse.
Each model comes with an integrated stainless steel three-link bracelet which has a mixture of brushed and polished surfaces to match the case nicely. If, however, the stainless steel bracelet isn’t your choice, the black and gold models also come with a matching black rubber strap.
The Tissot Seastar 1000 collection already had great affordable timepieces from a high-standard Swiss manufacturer. Now, with the addition of the 40mm models, a lot more versatility is offered, while still retaining the ageless design and precision performance.
