Introducing the Tissot Seastar Professional 2000 Collection
Friday - 05 November 2021
The new black, turquoise and blue Tissot Seastar Professional 2000 Powermatic 80 watches come fitted with a reliable automatic movement capable of providing at 80-hour power reserve and promise a superior 2000-feet water resistance.
If you want an affordable dive watch that ticks all the boxes for recreational diving, you don’t have to look too far. The saturated watch market offers a plethora of brands, dial colours and straps to meet the needs of every taste. All you need to do is settle on a watch that offers at least 200-meter water resistance, a legible dial with luminous hour markers and hands, a rotating bezel for elapsed timings, and a strap that won’t take an age to dry if you’re stepping in and out of the water frequently. In fact, you may not even be purchasing a luxury dive watch for underwater exploration at all. You may just love the style and feel of a dive watch and don’t want to burn a hole in your pocket whilst wearing one? But what if you want a more superior dive watch for an affordable price? Then the gap narrows a little. Luckily for Tissot fans, it doesn’t. There is plenty on offer at Tissot. The brand has dedicated centuries to creating accessible watches that don’t lose that all-important luxury feel.
Tissot dive watches don’t compromise on materials. They come with all the features of an archetypal dive watch and – even better - your wife won’t want to divorce you when she finds out what you’ve been splashing your savings on. If, when you dive, you do it seriously - look towards the new range of Tissot Seastar Professional 2000 watches. Seriously, do. Because you can choose from a range of different dial colours, movements that promise uncompromised reliability, and they look and feel like a luxury dive watch should do. Here, take a look for yourself.
The new Tissot Seastar Professional 2000 watches are certified dive watches and they’re all about enhanced robustness. The watches are made from high-tech materials and, for a serious dive watch, they’re very wallet-friendly too. Tissot, of course, is part of the Swatch Group and so it represents entry-level pricing into the world of luxury watches. Tissot already has dive tools occupying the Seastar watch collection, equipped with an in-built water resistance of up to 1000 feet. The Seastar Professional 2000 Powermatic 80 watch – you guessed it – comes with an integrated 2000 feet water resistance. At the same time as adding more water resistance to the watch, The Professional 2000 range also promises more shock protection. What’s more, it complies with ISO standards and, as I said, won’t give your other half a heart stack when you come clean about the price. The watch, compared to pre-existing Seastar models look very similar in style, but the Professional 2000 Powermatic 80 has been beefed up considerably to offer better all-round resistance to external elements.

Making an impact, first of all, is the dive watch’s large case, which measures a 46mm diameter. Crafted from stainless steel, it sits on the wrist with a depth of over 26mm in height. Woe – this is a watch that thrives for attention. Hope you do too? Having said that, it features short lugs, which make the case more wearable and somehow less imposing, but in a good way. Topped with a sapphire crystal glass front, the material is treated with layers of anti-reflective technology, which, when paired with its scratch-resistant properties, grants a clear view into the dial, promising the surface of the display superior protection from moisture, light, heat and debris damage. Masculine in shape and with proud chunky proportions, you aren’t going to miss the Tissot Seastar Professional 2000 Powermatic 80 watch on the wrist. It has unmissable sports credentials too, so you may want to enjoy the watch for outdoor adventures, a fitness regime, or a vacation. There’s also a choice between the straps. Two versions come on a stainless steel bracelet, the other is fitted on a supple black rubber band.
The case of this hefty new Tissot dive watch is a mix of satin-brushed flanks with flat polished surfaces for an enhanced sense of depth and dimension. Its 600-meter water resistance is upheld by the help of a screw-down caseback and screw-down crown, adorned with an engraving of the Tissot logo. You’re also granted the luxury of being able to admire the Seastar’s internally fitted heart at work as it beats behind a crisp sapphire crystal glass caseback. In addition to these expert diver-friendly features, the Tissot Seastar Professional 2000 Powermatic 80 watch comes with a helium escape valve, making it more than suitable for saturation diving. With the help of Tissot’s high-tech materials and industry-leading technology, you can experience incredibly daring underwater depths with this luxury dive watch strapped to the wrist.
The new Tissot Seastar Professional 2000 Powermatic 80 watch comes in three dial variations: a classic black, a turquoise and a blue colour. These dials, adorned with an attractive wave pattern upon their surface, are surrounded by unidirectional rotating bezels with a black ceramic insert bearing metallic-coated 60-minute markers. The notched bezel edging ensures an easy grip under wet hands or whilst wearing gloves. As with most luxury dive watches, the bezel can rotate only in the counterclockwise direction to ensure that your remaining dive time underwater will never accidentally become extended without you realising.
Back to the dial again and these legible surfaces come with Super-LumiNova coated rhodium-plated hour markers, visible hands in the same luminous material, and a T-shaped counterweight on the central second hand. The date feature is positioned at 6 o’clock and is governed by the Powermatic 80 movement, which sits at the centre of the watch’s robust steel casing. The self-winding movement provides an 80-hour power reserve and comes with a Nivachron hairspring to prevent magnetic damage whilst it beats at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour. As mentioned, the gradient blue and turquoise models come on a stainless steel bracelet with a folding clasp, whilst the black dial option comes fitted on a black rubber strap with a traditional-styled pin buckle.
