    Tissot Seastar Navigator Val 7733 - a long journey 2011 to 2018

    Hi All,


    Way back in may 2011, when I was just a new collector/hobby watchmaker - I started this thread:

    Ah my naivety hurts

    Well, it has taken the best part of 7 years of occasional looking to find a replacement dial and bezel - and I finally finished putting it back together this afternoon. Its not perfect but it feels like a well aged example, and I'll enjoy wearing it.

    Thanks!

    The real story here (not sure if it was clear in the link) was that this watch came scattered across a number of boxes - when I bough the sweepings out of a watchmaker's drawers. It took some time to find all the bits that are in the first photo.

    Anyway, am happily wearing it today - I wasn't sure this one would ever make it back onto a wrist.

    One other nice thing is that it has an engraving on the back - for an Island right at the bottom of NZ. Fun.

    Cheers.
