This Watch

We have here a stunning Tissot wristwatch from the 1940s. The off-white/cream dial has survived remarkably and is guaranteed original!  We love the mix of raised Arabic numbers and dot markers, along with the two tone finish - subsidiary seconds for that perfect symmetry and check out the font on Tissot Automatic. signed 'Tissot' with their vintage typeface before the  'T' logo was introduced and when Tissot watch co and Omega watch co worked together .A detailed and elegant dial with perfect symmetry - what more could you ask for in a dress watch!

The compact 32mm, 9ct solid gold, English-made, sturdy Dennison case is in immaculate condition.  Inside is the automatic in-house Tissot auto bumper caliber 28.5-1, which you could easily mistake for the omega caliber 28.10! and as the two companies worked so closely together who is to say there was not a collaboration when producing these. Fully serviced by us and running strongly.  We've paired the watch on a brown leather strap but it looks great dressed up on black leather too.  

Extra Points 

The Swiss luxury watch company Tissot from Le Locle, Switzerland, was established in 1853 by Charles Félicien Tissot and his son Charles-Emile. Under Charles-Emile’s direction, they manufactured pocket watches with parts from Russia and the United States. In 1915, the company began producing wristwatches. Between 1920 and 1977, Tissot produced its own movements. In 1930 to survive the 1929 crash and economic crisis they entered into an agreement with Omega to form the SSIH Group which 53 years later became the Swatch Group.

The watch comes fully serviced by our on-site workshop and with our 12 months, non-waterproof service cover.

What we think

In our opinion, this Tissot is equal to what Omega were producing at the time in style and quality.  It is one not to be missed - the dial alone is exquisite - and it will look great in an established collection or a perfect piece for a first-time, vintage watch buyer!  Plus look at that condition - something that is quite rare for a watch of this age
