I got a chance to look over another watch I got from the antique show last week. This one is a 1974 Tissot Seastar diver, this one is really nice! I spent some time polishing the case with Simichrome, and it looks great....still has scratches but at least they are shiny scratches!! Will neeed to get the case polished on a wheel someday but I can live with it. Watch probably has a sapphire crystal based on the fact it is scratch free. The movement is a Tissot 2481 automatic (hand wind but no hack) which is the same as an Omega 1481....should be 21 Jewels. Serial number dates it to 1974. It has a push crown for date set and a slate blue face. The movement inside looks very clean. Case is 40mm (w/crown) across center and also 40mm from 8 to 2.....45mm long, but wears large due to the hidden lugs. Awesome watch!!

Great cial and case shape! Maybe a wider strap, but either way it is a beautiful vintage!

Talk about a beautiful vintage watch Gary, THIS is it ! Vintage 70's Tissot Seastar 803574
It has to be so neat having a Seastar from this time. I like
the way the newer Seastars have looked, and this vintage
version is UNBELIEVABLY NICE ! Vintage 70's Tissot Seastar 46145 Vintage 70's Tissot Seastar Icon_biggrin Can't get over how
GREAT the case shape is with this one. Tissot REALLY hit the
ball out of the park with this watch. I mean just look at it..
the perfectly done dial, hands, and markers. That case, the
EXCELLENT movement, and strap. Vintage 70's Tissot Seastar Icon_smile It's a REAL classic sir,
and you have it ! Congratulations, and keep on enjoying it !
Awesome pics by the way !

The beveled case rocks. Gives it much more presence than many other
round watches. And of course the gray dial classes it up something right nice.

Good taste my man!
