Tissot Seastar ?

Recommended Posts

This was my grandfather's watch.
 
As far as I can tell it's a Tissot Seastar, but unlike all the others I've seen on the net it doesn't actually have 'seastar' written on the face.
 
Can anyone shed any light as to why ?
 
I don't imagine they are worth much, aside from (in this case) sentimentally, but I would like to know more about it.

I dont think the early ones had Seastar on the dial in all cases. I once nearly bought a later one which did have it on the dial. However at the time I came across a few early ones that did not. It seems companies often introduce a name for a specific watch at a later date. As a result some earlier versions sometimes get the name attributed more casually by sellers. At least that is how it appears. This is an example of my train of thought. Though I stand to be corrected.
