Tissot Seastar 2000 Professional Powermatic 80 - T120.607.37.041.00

The Tissot Seastar 2000 Professional, a watch we reviewed when it was updated last year, is Tissot’s answer to an instrument dive watch. And for the price, it’s packed with features… It has a powerful automatic movement, great diving capacities, solid materials all around, the required certifications, and it even looks pretty cool. In short, everything you’d expect and more. After the initial models of 2021, the brand now updates the collection with two new Tissot Seastar 2000 Professional Powermatic 80 models, one with gold touches and one with a black-and-blue abyssal theme. 

Tissot Seastar 2000 Professional Powermatic 80 - T120.607.37.041.00

Let’s go back to the basics of the Seastar 2000 Professional. What you’re looking at is one of the most interesting yet accessible deep dive watches. Not a casual-looking 200m watch for the weekend here, but a watch made for the abyss. Modern in its design without vintage references, it remains relatively classic yet strong and powerful. Measuring 46mm in diameter and 16.25mm in height, the Seastar 2000 is a big watch for big dives. Thanks to short lugs, it remains relatively easy to live with. Made of 316L stainless steel, the nicely executed case is equipped with a bevelled and domed sapphire crystal, a screw-down crown and a screwed caseback with a see-through crystal. There’s a helium valve on the side, and water-resistance is rated at 600m or 2,000ft.

The Tissot Seastar 2000 Professional also comes with a unidirectional bezel made of stainless steel, with deep notches allowing for an easy grip. It features a black polished ceramic insert with an engraved 60-minute scale. And the watch complies with the stringent ISO 6425 standard for dive watches. The dial, with gradient colours and an engraved wave pattern, adds a bit of fun to the otherwise serious design. Hands and markers are large and generously covered in SLN. A date sits at 6 o’clock, yet feels pretty well integrated.

Inside you’ll find Swatch Group’s Powermatic movement, a reworked ETA base with an extended power reserve of 80 hours and a Nivachron balance spring with anti-magnetic properties.

First released in three stainless models, with either black rubber strap or stainless steel bracelet, and dials presented in dark blue, turquoise or black, there are now two new models in the Seastar 2000 Professional Collection. First in line is a watch made with a certain luxurious appeal. This reference T120.607.17.441.01 has a steel case, a black gradient dial and is worn on a black rubber strap. What matters most in this context is the presence, on both the bezel, the hands and the markers of gold-coloured accents giving this edition a retro look.

The other new version, the reference T120.607.37.041.00, plays on a completely different theme with its PVD-coated stainless steel case, a black bezel with silver-coloured scale and a dark blue gradient dial. This version is worn on a bi-material black rubber and blue textile strap for an even more modern and casual style. Other than that, all the specifications of the three models we reviewed last year are retained in these new editions.

Availability & price

These two new editions of the Tissot Seastar 2000 Professional Powermatic 80 are now available from Tissot’s website and retailers. The black-and-gold edition retails for EUR 995. The black PVD-coated version with blue dial retails for EUR 1,095. For more details, please visit www.tissotwatches.com.

  1. 46mm diameter x 16.25 mm height , it just doesn’t make sens to me, they are 2000’s dimensions !
    Having all the avantages of being part of the swatch group ( movement etc…) to do that is a bit of a mistery to me…..
    Thank you again Brice for this review…

  2. The blue/black one looks great..but 46mm !!!! 16.25mm height ????
    If this was on my wrist I wouldn’t look like a diver. I’d look like a fashion model with a big watch.

  3. Interesting to see no one complaining about the use of the C07.111 version of the Powermatic with its engineered plastic escapement. As someone who is not at all concerned about this new material, hopefully the fears are fading away as the imagined problems fail to materialize.

    As for the watch itself, this seems like a good value for those who prefer dive watches. Tissot makes handsome, high quality pieces at a fair price and this is no exception.

  4. It wouldn’t be WISE to purchase one, when you know about the Adamaskus.

  5. Agreed. However it’s spelled Adamascus. Check out the ADAMASCUS AD801 LIMITED, that was published much earlier.

  6. MONOCHROME really does have some funny readers, some comments are, well. Let’s just say misinformed and unintelligent.
    I’ve owned and lived with the 46mm version for 3 months now and I can say it wears true to a 44mm, due to its small lugs. But again it all depends on your wrist size, 18cm or above is fine. Also not forgetting that a true divers watch needs to be larger due to easier reading of the time under water. Remember it’s a professional certified Swiss diver’s watch!
    The watch is very accurate, a second a day fast with my peace and never loses due to vast temperature changes. A very good realisable movement.
    As usual, TISSOT, had made a good quality watch for the price which can be compared to other watches costing twice or even 3 times as much. Not mentioning any names of course.

    Thanks for the interesting read. Although again, I can see this is just going to be an understated watch for many people. When really it’s a modest sized Gem!

  7. If you are really going to dive with this that massive bezel might be useful to grip but I’m guessing the dial is only about 30mm and it’s a pity about the Omega style grooves in it.

  8. You will need to adjust your buoyancy compensator prior to diving with that weight belt strapped to your wrist.
