Default Tissot's Seastar 1000 Chrono Bronze PVD

Has anyone had a chance to see Tissot's Seastar 1000 Chrono Bronze PVD
already?

This new watch will have a 45.5mm stainless steel case with a bronze PVD
coating, 300m WR, AR coated sapphire crystal, black dial with luminous
hands, and markers, special rubber strap, along with Swiss quartz ETA caliber
G10.212 behind a neat case-back guys.

Have a few pics...

Looks real nice, I may have to buy my first Chrono. I'm not big into Chronos, but that one may win me over. It looks like Swatch is moving Tissot into Longines territory for prices, Longines into Omegas and Omegas to go head to head with Rolex. I think I read that somewhere. Not good for us.

Didn't mean to tempt you at all Voyager. Just wanted to share the
news of it, but am glad you like it so much ! It's interesting how
this is actually a bronze PVD on these. ..Guess that helps in that it
wouldn't get that change in finish with the patina. Like usually can
happen with real bronze.

Oh, and it's a fantastic point with the brands there, and how they
are comparing, and going head to head price wise. ..Really does
seem true !

That is one butt ugly watch ! Tissot has been swirling around the toilet bowl ever since Swatch took over. Bring back some of that proud tradition found in the Le Locle and the Ballade. Bronze PVD. I mean, you either do it or you don't. That has to be one of the most motley cases I've ever seen. These new hip looking things look cheap and judging by their movement choice on this watch are cheap crap...
