By TLex Here's a quick first look at the new entry level diver from TISSOT and the little brother of the Seastar 1000 Chrono. The Seastar 1000 Automatic has a 42mm stainless steel case, which has a water-resistance of 300 meters and houses a Swiss automatic caliber, the ETA 2824-2 with 25 jewels, beating at 28'000 vph with a power-reserve of 40 hours and date function. Its movement with custom rotor can be viewed through an exhibition caseback. Other features include: a sapphire crystal and HEV (9 o'clock).
Three dial variants are available: blue with white handset and markers, black with orange handset and markers or black with white handset and markers. Prices range from 875 to 925USD (bracelet). Everything seems to work for me; a lovely clean dial layout, cool handset, simple overall design. It should make someone a great first Swiss mechanical diver.
