    I'm A Safe Driver! Or At Least The Original Owner Of My New Tissot Was.

    This in today. A Tissot SeaStar (I think, it looks an awful lot like SeaStars I looked up) awarded to....someone (the case back is blank) for ten years of safe driving. I'm unsure of the company as well, A K in a hexagon shape is not a logo I am readily familiar with. Overall, it's a pretty nice watch. Decent size, and pretty clean. I particularly like the minute track and the long stick hands. The drilled lugs are nice, too!

    The movement is the real winner with this one. Tissot 2511, and based on the serial is from 1972. The 2511 is from the era when Tissot was sharing Omega movements, and this is a rebranded Omega 1480. My first "Omega"! (No, I am not going to actually call it an Omega.)

    The movement makes a lovely buzz when hand-winding that I've read about, and the quick-set date (push in the crown) is a treat to operate. All in all, I am very pleased with it, and best of all it was cheap.

    Sorry but it's the other way round that if it was in a Omega it would be a Tissot.
