WILD~70s TISSOT SEASTAR AUTOMATIC

Regular price $550.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A TOTALLY BONKERS EARLY 70s TISSOT AUTOMATIC IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH INTEGRATED BRACELET AND KILLER DIAL. 

 

  • CASE: CLEAN AND CRISP SOLID STEEL TONNEAU CASE MEASURING IN AT 37mm NOT INCLUDING CROWN. THE WAY THAT THIS BRACELET INTEGRATES WITH THE CASE IS QUITE THE DESIGN FEATURE AND GIVES THIS ONE SOME FANTASTIC WRIST PRESENCE.

 

  • DIAL: I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START ON THIS ONE. IT’S PURE 70s INSANITY. BOTH RACY AND FUNKY, THIS BLACK/SILVER DIAL HAS A TON OF VISUAL IMPACT. THE BLACK PORTION HAS A NICE INKY GLOSS FINISH WHICH BISECTS THE 2 SUNBURST SILVER SEGMENTS. SUCH FANTASTIC ATTENTION TO DETAIL WITH THOSE APPLIED STEEL MARKERS WITH THE WHITE TRIM BLOCKS STACKED ON EACH TO CREATE A TRIPPY 3-D EFFECT. THE WHITE/STEEL THEME CONTINUES INTO THAT SWEET SANDWICH STYLE HANDSET. JUST AN ABSOLUTELY BONKERS DIAL!

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS WELL MANNERED GENT RUNS ON A CLEAN SWISS GILTED TISSOT AUTOMATIC WITH QUICKSET ACHIEVED BY PUSHING IN ON THE CROWN REPEATEDLY. I DO NOT KNOW THE SERVICE HISTORY ON THIS ONE, BUT IT’S RUNNING SUPER SMOOTH AND WAS JUST CHECKED BY MY WATCHMAKER.

 

    THIS SEASTAR COMES ON ITS ORIGINAL SIGNED INTEGRATED TISSOT BRACELET WHICH IS SIZED FOR MY 6.5" WRIST AND HAS 6 ADDITIONAL MICRO-ADJUSTS TO SIZE UP AND 2 EXTRA TO SIZE DOWN.   I LOVE THE SUPER TAPER THESE OLD BRACELETS HAD GOING ON. THIS TISSOT WOULD MAKE A GREAT EVERYDAY WORK WATCH OR WOULD FIT IN PERFECTLY UNDER A DINNER JACKET.....AND, THAT DIAL!!!! WHOEVER GETS THIS ONE IS GONNA BE ONE LUCKY BASTARD.
