Tissot Seastar II T55.8.483.11 - A Refine Watch, A Review

In February 2011, I was in Switzerland. While there, I got a couple of watches. One of them is this Tissot Seastar II for my wife. Although defined as a gentleman's watch, its diameter size of just 36 mm makes it more "feminine" than "masculine".

It is an all stainless steel construction. With a white dial, it has markers with gold plating, including the hands. It has say and date functions situated at the 3 o'clock position. Apart from the brand "TISSOT 1853" at the North of the dial, the South has "AUTOMATIC 25 JEWELS SWISS MADE". All along the perimeter of the dial are micro-markers in 0.2 second intervals.

From the center of the dial right up to the inner edge of the main markers are fine concentric circles painted on the dial. It ends with a Super-LumiNova painted dot by each main markers. The hour and minute hands are also painted with the Super-LumiNova.

The crown is a 3-position push-down crown. Meanwhile, the dial is protected by sapphire crystal.

The case-back is solid without any image or logo etched on it. Only details about the watch. It is a snap-on case-back. This design sets the water rating limit to just 30 meters.

The automatic caliber used is the ETA 2824 with 25 jewels. The workhorse of the Swiss watch industry. Accurate and starts up fast from sleep with just a few shakes of the watch.

The bracelet with safety clasp. On the clasp is a logo of "T" etched on it. Unfortunately, the bracelet is not solid.

This watch is no longer in production. When I bought it, I got it for a price of RM735.85.

Overall, this watch can be worn anywhere. Replacing the bracelet with a brown or black leather strap will make it look even more refine.
