Today's offering showcases this classic and striking Tissot Seastar. A chronograph with robust water-resistance when it was made, the Seastar allowed active men to now enjoy their diving activities to an even greater degree. Besides being a watch that looks great - tastefully using color in the dial and hands to give a distinctive look, even more so now that the luminous has toned; and showcasing an interesting dial design and pure case with a well-made movement - it makes the watch a bit of a bargain. Measuring 44mm in diameter without the crown, it has much presence on the wrist although the dial makes it wear a little smaller than 44mm in my opinion. Powering this gem is the Lemania Caliber 873 movement, the sister movement of Omega's famous caliber 861 found as many of you know, in the Speedmaster. Mechanically, it is the exact same movement so it is easy to maintain and highly reliable. It is fully original and comes on its original Gay Freres signed bracelet. For those not familiar, Freres made bracelets for some very high-end makers including Patek, AP, and Rolex when it was independent and was ultimately acquired by Rolex. It has a more compact "Oyster" style that fits the watch well.
