As one of the leading producers of Swiss-made timepieces in the world, Tissot has built its name on creating quality watches that span a wide variety of styles. Tissot’s storied history in dive watches dates back as far as 1965 when the brand introduced one of its mainstays: the Seastar collection, which comprised a range of elegant, hermetically sealed waterproof watches for rugged outdoor wear. 80 years later, the Seastar collection is alive and well as one of the brand’s most popular collections, offering enthusiasts the opportunity to own capable, functional dive watches at relatively approachable prices. The newest entry into the collection, the Seastar 1000 Quartz, retains all of the charm and functionality of the other Seastar pieces but does so in a more svelte 36mm package.
Sporty, versatile, and primed to suit a range of wrist sizes, the new 36mm Seastar comes in three striking colorways: blue, white, and black with yellow-gold accents. The blue Seastar 1000 Quartz is arguably the most versatile, offering ample contrast and a bright blue dial that pops in the sun. The white dial variation appears more monochromatic on the wrist and offers a slightly more feminine aesthetic than the other choices. The black dial Seastar 1000 Quartz will no doubt appeal to those who enjoy a more heritage-inspired look, as the yellow-gold accents add a welcome touch of visual warmth, a look reminiscent of vintage watches adorned with gilt accents. The overall design of the Seastar 1000 Quartz is enhanced by thoughtful case finishing that alternates between mirror-polished flat surfaces and satin-brushed vertical surfaces. These contrasting finishes give the piece a more dynamic look, allowing it to jump off the wrist more than it would with a simple satin-brushed finish.
Though just 36mm in diameter and a mere 9.7mm-thick, this interpretation of the Seastar still passes for a serious dive watch, boasting 300 meters of water resistance, a screw-down crown, and a graduated uni-directional bezel. A quartz movement is a more practical choice for a dive watch in this genre; not only is it more affordable, but it will also have much longer service intervals.
The bracelet of the Seastar 1000 Quartz is both handsome and comfortable, featuring a milled clasp and three micro-adjustment slots to allow for the perfect fit. One feature that enthusiasts will also enjoy is its quick-release spring bar system, which allows for easy bracelet and strap swapping on the fly. Tissot offers a variety of different compatible silicone rubber straps that are also fitted with quick-release spring bars. The white-dialed variation of the watch (reference #T120.210.11.011.00) is sold as a set, with a white silicon strap included with purchase.
A mid-size unisex take on one of Tissot’s modern classic divers, the Seastar 1000 Quartz will suit a variety of wrists and occasions. Best of all, it is quite reasonably priced, at just $375 USD for reference T120.210.11.041.00 (blue dial), $395 USD for reference T120.210.21.051.00 (black dial/gold accents), and $415 USD for reference T120.210.11.011.00 (white dial with additional strap).
