FOR SALE IS A LARGE MAMA-JAMA EARLY 70s TISSOT SEASTAR T-12 COMPRESSOR CASED DIVER WITH 24 HOUR DIAL AND ORIGINAL GAY FRERES BRACELET. WILD AND OUT OF CONTROL

 

  • CASE: MASSIVE ALL-STEEL AND SEXY ALL-STEEL MONOCOQUE CASE IN EXCELLENT SHAPE MEASURING A ROBUST 42.5mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWNS BY 50mm LUG TO LUG.  THIS IS A HEAVY HEAVY PIECE OF MACHINERY.  CASE IS IN REALLY GREAT SHAPE WITH SOME MINOR SCRATCHES HERE AND THERE, BUT OVERALL MAINTAINING ALL ITS SHARP LINES AND UNPOLISHED ORIGINAL FINISH.  CHECK OUT THAT KILLER T-12 SAILING SHIP RELIEF ON THE CASE-BACK. I LOVE HOW THIS CASE SLOPES AND CURVES ON THE BACKSIDE TO FIT SNUGLY ALONG THE WRIST.  I LOVE THESE COMPRESSOR CASES THAT TISSOT DESIGNED FOR THEIR DIVE WATCHES. SOME OF THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS.

 

  • DIAL: NOW THIS IS A DIAL GONE WILD. IF THIS WASN'T ALREADY AN INTERESTING AND ALLURING DIAL, THE AGING PATTERN ON THIS ONE HAS TAKEN IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL.  THE TOP PORTION OF THE DIAL IS A STEEL COLOR, AND THE BOTTOM 24 HOUR HALF WAS DARK BLUE BUT HAS AGED TO A METALLIC BRONZE COLOR WHICH IS UNBELIEVABLY BEAUTIFUL AND STILL MAINTAINS HINTS OF THAT ORIGINAL BLUE TOWARDS THE BOTTOM. I LOVE THAT NICELY AGED LUME ON THE BOTTOM HALF OF THE DIAL AND THOSE KILLER SYRINGE STYLE SPORTS HANDS.  IT'S THAT SLOPED INNER ROTATING BEZEL RING THAT REALLY MAKES THIS A TOTAL BADASS.  IT'S GOT A LOVELY BLUE COLOR WITH THE WORLD CITIES IN WHITE.  THE BEZEL ROTATES WITH THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF FRICTION VIA THE TOP CROWN. THE ORIGINAL CRYSTAL IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, BUT I WILL NOTE THERE IS A SPECK WHICH SITS ABOVE THE 21 HOUR MARKER.  CHECK OUT THAT ORANGE TANGERINE SWEEP SECONDS HAND WHICH ADDS A PLAYFUL POP OF COLOR. 
  • MOVEMENT: THIS TISSOT T-12  RUNS ON A 21J TISSOT 788 AUTOMATIC 24 HOUR MOVEMENT WHICH ALLOWS THE HOUR TO MAKE 1 FULL SWEEP IN 24 HOURS WHICH MAKES THIS A REALLY FUN WAY TO TELL TIME. WATCH RUNS GREAT AND KEEPS GOOD TIME. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN ON THIS ONE.

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON THE ORIGINAL TISSOT SIGNED GAY FRERES BRACELET WHO MADE BRACELETS FOR OMEGA, ZENITH, AND HEUER TO NAME A FEW. THE BRACELET IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND WILL FIT UP TO A 7" WRIST. THIS IS ONE OF THE COOLEST AND MOST MACHO OF ALL THE COMPRESSOR DIVERS IN MY OPINION.  IF YOU SHY AWAY FROM VINTAGE BECAUSE YOU ARE USED TO WEARING A LARGE DIVE WATCH.......THIS IS THE WATCH YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.
