This Watch

We have here a stunning Tissot wristwatch from the 1970s.  The off-white/cream dial has a subtle linen effect.  We love the mix of applied, gilt, dagger and baton markers, with the batons at north, south, east and west.  This dial is signed 'Tissot' with their classic 'T' logo at 12 o'clock and 'Automatic' at 6 o'clock.  A simple and elegant dial with perfect symmetry - what more could you ask for in a dress watch!
The 34mm, 14ct solid gold, Swiss-made, sturdy case is fully signed and in immaculate condition.  Inside is the automatic in house Tissot caliber 2471, which was also used by Omega!  Fully serviced by us and running strongly.  We've paired the watch on a brown leather strap but it looks great dressed up on leather too.  Unusually for a watch of this age, it also comes with its original box and some paperwork.

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 the watch comes with its original box - something that is quite rare for a watch of almost 50 years!
