I was browsing vintage watches (never a good thing for my wallet), and saw this Tissot seastar. It seemed quite nice: automatic, day/ date and blue! I've a soft spot for blue dials. The watch arrived today in great condition, save for a couple very minor scuffs on the crystal. It seems to be running fine, the fellow says it was serviced about a year ago.
I'm liking the looks of this watch, but have one question: does anyone know how to properly set the day/ date on this automatic Tissot 796? It has a quickset feature that changes both when you roll between 10 and 12, but I can't tell how to set them separately. The day wheel also has two of every indication, so setting it properly will be interesting. I can only feel one position when I pull out the crown, so not sure on that one.
On to the photos!
