CONDITION REPORT

The 35mm steel case is sharp, maybe lightly polished in the past. The movement is clean and properly working, although not serviced in our possession (has been checked by our watchmaker to ensure correct functioning, and service is not due yet). The dial is in good condition but some marks can be seen at 11-12-1, and a deeper ding at 8. Hands are all original and have been relumed in the past.

Description

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.
