Tissot Seastar Navigator Chronograph

Finding a vintage mechanical watch in a case that measures 38 mm or above (pretty much the starting size for a men’s modern wristwatch), is not an easy task. As you may already know, in the 1950s, 60s and 70s - men’s wristwatches were much smaller, and so finding a larger modern sized watch from that era — can be quite difficult. Especially if you want one in good working condition. Today, we found just that: a 1970s Tissot Seastar Navigator Chronograph in a 40 mm stainless steel cushion case, and in good condition. It has a silver dial, with orange and red chronograph hands. Light blue paint marks the first 5-minutes of the 30-minute chrono counter further enhancing this cool and very colorful dial. A square aperture at 6 o’clock displays the date. Inside is a manually wound Valjoux

Silver-toned dial comes with a brown strap and the anthracite dial comes with a black strap.

The Tissot Heritage Visodate

Introduced this year at Baselworld — and inspired by 1950s Tissot Visodates — the new Visodate Heritage is an excellent modern reinterpretation of a classic. Particularly, the larger case and dial, and old school “Tissot” signed dial, make for a very attractive timepiece that is consistent with today’s styles. (Vintage Visodate timepieces display the date only; new version displays both the day and date.)
