Tissot Introduces a New Diver’s Watch With Pro Specs
The new Tissot 200ft Seastar Professional is a beautiful masterpiece with a design made perfectly for fans who spend most of their weekends near or in the water. With its Swiss-automatic movement, a diameter of 25.6mm, this beautiful water-resistant watch can hold up to a pressure of 2000 ft or 600m.
It has a stainless steel case, which makes it appropriate for a casual or formal look. But, what makes it more interesting is that because it’s made with robust and durable material, it’s also a watch that can accompany you in your extreme activities, resisting water damage and regular wear and tear. It is presented in three color options—deep blue, black, and turquoise. Any of these three is a compliment on your wrist.
Tissot and the Birth of the Seastar
While Tissot is known for producing dress watches that are usually reserved for special occasions, the brand has also ventured into making tool watches, hence the birth of the Seastar. In 1853, the brand gambled on creating water-resistant watches and all of their efforts transpired at the horology house of Tissot from Le Locle.
By the 1920s, Tissot was already making its way to success with the creation of the first anti-magnetic wristwatch. This came at the heels of its water-resistant watch lines, exhibiting a new set of features—shock-resistance and anti-magnetism, to name a few. The year 1952 and Tissot registered the name Seastar. However, it took two more years before its debut in the brand’s 1954 catalog.
The first Seastar had a thicker case to protect the watch from moisture. It wasn’t until 1970 when Tissot released a collection of much more sporty types of watches called the Tissot’s T12. This served as a catalyst for the release of more innovative watches from Tissot, each surpassing people’s expectations every time.
