Tissot the luxury Swiss watchmaker recently released the Tissot Seastar 1000 Automatic Professional Chronograph Valjoux. Fusing design with technology the Seastar 1000 allows for action packed adventures as well as calm and relaxed occasions.

The design of the Seastar 1000 was based around the concept of a diver. The Seastar’s main selling point is its ability to go down to a pressure of 30 bars. That’s around 1,000ft below sea level, more than enough for professional divers.

The 1000 features a divers buckle and extension making it easy for divers to handle the watch. The indexes as well as the clock hands are coated with SupeLuminova allowing for visibility deep under the surface of the sea.

A unique feature of the Seastar 1000 family is that the watches come with their own helium valve which automatically depressurizes the watch, a lifesaving feature. What could be worse for a diver than diving deep down into the sea and thinking your good on time only to find out that the pressure has damaged your watch and you won’t have enough time to go back up.

The case of the 1000 is made of stainless steel .The clock face is a sapphire crystal coated with anti reflective material. The bracelet is rubber and can extend to adjust to the users wrist size. The back of the watch has a clear sapphire crystal that allows the user to view the mechanisms that drive the watch. A total of 25 jewels make up the gears that run the watch.

The watch has two push down buttons on the left side to control the timers. The indexes representing the time and the seconds are engraved on. The craftsmanship shows up through such small details on the watch.

An automatic movement system drives the 1000. The movement is based on the Valjoux 7750 Chronograph, a highly proven and dependable mechanism used by most luxury watches and watchmakers.
