Description

Tissot needs no introduction. However, this specific model might.

The Tissot Sideral was introduced in 1972, a rough era for watchmaking as quartz tried to penetrate the market. Featuring lighter and funkier colors, this watch was aimed to the younger public and race car drivers. The term Bullhead refers to the position of the crown and pushers, them being at 12 o clock and giving it the shape of a bull.

The black bezel contrasts beautifully with the white dial, and so does the colorful subdials. Although funky, it is still a very wearable piece for any vintage Tissot or race car lover.

The watch comes almost in full set condition, missing only the warranty card papers, hence including the box, original strap, original buckle and even the hang tag.  Watches like this don’t come around often, so buy it before it’s too late.
