Regular price $695.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A LARGE MAMA-JAMA EARLY 70s TISSOT SEASTAR T-12 COMPRESSOR CASED DIVER. JUST SERVICED.

 

  • 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 DINGS AND 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 MIGHT BE ONE OF THE MOST INTIMIDATING DIALS IN THE VINTAGE DIVE WATCH MARKET.  I THINK YOU NEED TO BE TRAINED IN OPERATING HEAVY FIREARMS IN ORDER TO BE SPORTING A FACE LIKE THIS ON YOUR WRIST. CHECK OUT THAT MINTY MATTE BLACK DIAL WITH THAT COOL WHITE CROSS-HAIRS DESIGN.  VERY LEGIBLE AND CLEAN.  I LOVE THAT NICELY AGED LUME 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 THOSE GROOVY APPLIED STEEL MARKERS AND THAT MASSIVE LUMED TRIANGLE AT 12 WHICH IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING.  THE BEZEL ROTATES WITH THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF FRICTION VIA THE TOP CROWN. THE ORIGINAL CRYSTAL DOES HAVE SOME MICRO PRESSURE CRACKS TOWARDS THE BOTTOM PERIPHERY, BUT I DECIDED TO KEEP IT AS-IS TO PRESERVE ITS ORIGINALITY.  CHECK OUT THAT ORANGE TANGERINE SWEEP SECONDS HAND WHICH ADDS A PLAYFUL POP OF COLOR TO THIS OTHERWISE SERIOUS DIAL.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS TISSOT T-12  RUNS ON A 17J ETA BASED TISSOT 784-2 AUTOMATIC WHICH HAS JUST COME BACK FROM A FULL SERVICE. WATCH IS KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME AND RUNNING STRONG. 

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A HEAVY-DUTY OLIVE DRAB GREEN MILITARY STRAP SUPPLIED BY AGUE-TRADING WHICH LOOKS SUPER TOUGH ON THIS DIVER.  YOU DON'T SEE MANY OF THESE COME AROUND OFTEN. 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.  SERVICED AND READY TO KICK SOME SERIOUS ASS.
