    Cool 2003 Tissot Seastar 1000 - New Love

    When I first got it (2003 Tissot Seastar 1000), I thought it was way too heavy for me and so put it on a rubber strap and cut the weight by 1/3. I was wearing it every morning to my workouts and over the years was it was slowly deteriorating.

    I had just had a 5 year service performed on my regular love (Omega SMP 2255...at a of cost US$533.00) at Swatch/Bangkok. When I checked online the price of a full service of the Tissot, I couldn't believe how cheap it was (US$152.00), so I jumped on it.

    Long-story-short, my watch came back not only with the ETA 2824 completely cleaned and rebuilt, but every aspect of the case, bezel, case-back, bracelet and everything in between all cleaned and polished. It looks like a brand new watch, and I can't stop wearing it!

    And to boot, it is keeping well within COSC specs at less than 1-second loss per day. And I LIKE its bulk. Quite frankly, the modern Seastar 1000 is no way close to this.

    Who knew...?

    I owned a Seastar before and found it to be a decent watch for the money. I had the silver dial and black bezel and I thought it was a pretty good looking watch.

    As for pics, I get what you're saying...but could you post a before and after? I'm curious about the polish.

    Sorry, I'm not the type of guy that spends time 'photographing' my watches. So definately no 'before' photos, but when I wake up tomorrow morning, I may snap a quickie of the two (2) girls (in blue). But Swatch did as good of a job on the Seastar as they did on my SMP. Funny thing, it was the same group of guys doing the same work...in the same lab.

    iPhone photos: Not so good lighting on my side of the building this morning, but you get the idea. All in 'Blue'...

    Nice watch, but the bezel insert looks like it got hit by a train more than once.

    "Nice watch, but the bezel insert looks like it got hit by a train more than once"

    Thank you, my 15-watt friend, for your participation and comment. However, the Tissot Seastar 1000 of my vintage does NOT have a bezel insert. The bezel is all one solid piece. But you knew that...right?

    As for my 16-year-old watch 'being hit by a train more than once'...you're joking, right...?!

    I don't think he meant any offence, unlike your reply. Judging by the photos, something has certainly happened to the bezel between 12 and 3. Has someone tried to do a paintfill on the smaller subdivisions? It's a pretty terrible job, if so. Nice watches by the way - particularly like the Seamaster. I used to have a midsize quartz electric blue.
