Here is a good manual wind Tissot Visodate Seastar, with the original bracelet, and rarer dark grey dial.  Model reference 45220-2x.


From the serial number on the movement we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1969.


Visodate Seastar is not a snappy name, but this is one of the best ways to buy a well known Swiss vintage watch without breaking the bank.  This Tissot Visodate Seastar has the mesh bracelet that we think is original – the way the curved ends fit the case and the signed clasp lead us to believe that, but we have not seen another like it.  The stainless steel case is quite slim, and houses a Tissot calibre 782-1 manual wind movement.  This has semi quick set date and 17 jewels, and is all working well when hand wound via the signed original crown.  The finishing isn’t in the same class as an Omega or Longines, but neither was (or is) the price.  The dial is clean and doesn’t look to be restored – always something to question with darker dials.  there are actually two different shades of dark grey used – one for the centre and one for the outer ring, and the text is silver and crisp.  The bracelet is quite long and has been cleaned in our ultrasonic bath.

This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
