    1947 Vintage Tissot cal 27 help

    Can someone tell me which particular movement is this, because I heard that cal 27 existed in a number of variants. Also does this watch seem franken/redialed ? According to my research, the SN points to 1947.

    EDIT: From my research it seems the movement is the simple one cal 27.

    Yes, sub second and no shock device means that it's the base calibre 27. 1947 would be too early for the 27-T or the 27B (both are sub-second, without a shock device).
    The case dates to 1945, which would be around the time that Tissot was starting to use reference instead of serial numbers on cases. Two years of difference between the case and movement is nothing wrong in case of Tissot, that's what usually happens in mass production, when cases and movements come from different production runs. Not a franken, then.

    Unfortunately, a redial. The font used for "antimagnetic" is shoddy and not the correct one for Tissot.

    Really ? It's true that the only ones I found so far said Antimagnetique not Antimagnetic... Did tissot do the whole continental europe-french non-european-english thing ?

    But I didn't know about the font thing, I could swear I've seen plenty using this font (?).

    I've never seen "Antimagnetic" on the dial; the correct logo is "Antimagnetique" or "Non magnetic"

    Yes, Tissot did that "continental European= French and non-continental-not-necessarily-European= English" thing, but used the same font for both "Non Magnetic" and "Antimagnetique".
