FROM THE CURATOR, PERSONAL NOTE
Tissot made some really great watches. They used in-house movements that were really high quality specially before they were bought by the Swatch group, when they then started to use ETA-based movements.
This specific watch is trully breathtaking on the aesthetics. The patinated dial meshes greatly with the hands and configuration of the numerals. The 6 o’clock subdial really gives it the vintage look at first glance. Almost 70 years old and really ticking strongly. All I can say is: I wish I could be this handsome at 70.
