Tissot Seastar 1000

April 6, 2011

Tissot, founded by a father and son team, has been making watches since 1853, and although it merged with Omega in the 1930s and later on became a member of the Swatch Group, it is still the same company with the same core value of creating affordable watches for those with a passion for technology.

Even if you are not that into men’s watches, you probably know the Tissot T-Touch, which debuted in the late 1990s. Earlier, Tissot created watches from special materials such as rock, wood, plastic, and pearl.

Last year in Basel, Tissot reintroduced its Seastar line of watches that had been discontinued a few years before. Tissot and Seastar go a long way back, but today’s version looks nothing like those modest waterproof watches of the 1960s. The Tissot Seastar 1000 Chronograph, a large 48mm diving watch with chronograph complication is, as Tissots are always, a sound entry-level mechanical timepiece.


This watch is a Swiss-made stainless-steel 48mm diver with a mechanical chronograph and helium valve. It features 1000-foot water resistance and a sapphire crystal, and the details are very nicely done. The watch also offers different dial colors, optional black or blue PVD finish, and a sporty rubber strap or a stainless-steel bracelet.

We think there are a lot of brands out there that are producing watches with more or less the same specifications, but probably not for this price. Tissot makes quality watches (although it’s considered low-end) with a very affordable price tag. So, in short, the uniqueness of this timepiece is the ratio of price and quality.


There is not much doubt about the quality of the massive stainless-steel Tissot Seastar 1000, which is fitted with a sapphire crystal and uses a proven ETA C01.211 mechanical automatic movement. It is just a good watch, plain and simple. The question is, will it still be as nice a few years from now?

Most Tissot sport watches tend to look dated quickly, and you’ll want to be able to wear yours for years to come without looking silly. So if you are in the market for the Tissot Seastar 1000, make sure to get one with a color scheme that is as neutral as possible.
