    Advice on this Tissot By Galli of Zurich

    This is one of those rare occasions where someone is asking for opinions on a watch before they buy it instead of after.

    My specific question on this one is the case. It just looks a little off to me, too dull? As if it were painted on. Was it replated at some point?

    Everything else seems fine about the watch. Dial and movement seem original and appropriate. But I thought I'd still ask the experts first :)

    Re: Advice on this Tissot Antimagnetique

    In this case, I would need to see the inside of the caseback. The movement serial dates it to 1945, and there were Antimagnetique models with fancy lugs.
    The inside of the caseback has to have a Tissot marking and a reference or serial number. For 1945 I guess that would be a reference number already. The case is too dull? What do you mean by that? Gold surface of the case tends to gather scratches over time, and I wouldn't expect a watch from 1945 to be mirror-polished anymore. Besides, if it was replated, this could have happened. Plated watches generally get scratched easily, and when the plate starts falling off, then... Replating is sometimes the only solution.

    Re: Advice on this Tissot Antimagnetique

    I think that's my issue, I expect this case to be more heavily worn down than it is. My first reaction to the case was, "was that painted yellow"

    Re: Advice on this Tissot Antimagnetique

    I have an Antimagnetique which is identical (slight variation in dial and without the dealer's name on the dial, though) and my case is in very similar condition. The plate is quite glossy on mine – hardly any wear at all!– and quite warm (not red/pink though). All in all very similar.

    Questions on Tissot by Galli Zurich

    I recently got this Tissot which bears the name of the famous Jeweller "GalliZurich" on its dial.Let me say right away that I love the gorgeous dial and the numbering on it.The only thing that worries me is the positions on the dial where the inscription for "Galli Zurich " appears.Most other watches I've seen bear that name at the 12 o'cock position. Apart from this I do know what movement this watch uses.So my questions to my friends here:

    Is it a re-dial?

    What movement does this watch use?

    Any other discrepencies that are visible with respect to the authenticity of the watch?

    I have a thing for vintage Tissots from this period especially models with the sub-seconds layout in gold-plate or (better still!) gold.Here are the deatiled pics of the watch in question.All bouquets and brickbats welcome as always.

    The movement is a calibre 27. Re-dial? I think not.

    To me. the Galli Zurich adds novelty to the dial, but that's just me!

    By the way, the Galli jewelry/watch retailer still exists, still is in Zurich, and still sells Tissot.

    Yes, that's what adds novelty to the watch. Galli have been know to be sellers of Lemanias and Omegas and have their place in horology as one of the longest standing retailers.
