You've probably heard of the Tissot Visodate by now. You've probably even heard of the Tissot Seastar... But you've most likely never heard of theis Tissot Visodate Seastar!
The 1960s were truly Tissot's "sweet spot" as they consistently produced gems like this PR516.
On paper its listed at 34.5mm, but wears a bit larger- I'd compare it's wearability to a hamilton khaki field mechanical. In fact, this Tissot PR516 feels right at home on a single piece military nato!
While Tissot's "Visodate" and "Seastar" lines may have gone their separate ways, it's pieces like this PR516 that'll help us remember Tissot's Good 'ol days!
