1960s TISSOT VISODATE SEASTAR PR516 DIVERS WATCH, Automatic, Waterproof - SS
Connoiseur of Time
1960's TISSOT VISODATE SEASTAR PR516 DIVERS WATCH, Automatic, Waterproof - Stainless Steel
Sporty, Classic, and Robust - All Original - 100% Feedback
A sporty and classic vintage waterproof wristwatch from Tissot.
Since 1853, the Swiss watchmaker Tissot & Co. has been building exceptional and sought-after timepieces, driven by an innovative spirit and a focus on highly skilled craftsmanship. In 1925, Tissot began an important association with the watchmaking firm of Omega S.A. To understand the uniqueness of this watch one must know of the relationship between the two companies - Tissot president (and grandson of the founder), Charles, was named to Omega's board of directors.
Shortly thereafter (in 1930 to be exact), the SSIH Holding Company (Societe Suisse pour l'Industrie Horlogere) was founded with Omega and Tissot as its first members.
Today's auction showcases an all-original Tissot Visodate Seastar watch. Here are some of its features:
Great 60's diver style watch with highly legible dial
Full size date window located at 3 o'clock
Waterproof case with screwed down case back
The waterproof case is in near mint condition. The original matte black dial shows only the slightest bit of aging. And the automatic movement is keeping time.
Included with the purchase is a full one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
