    Any info appreciated - vintage Tissot

    Hi

    Salvaged this from an old box of stuff belonging to my great uncle.
    I really like it but know nothing about it.
    Can anybody help?
    There are no markings on the back of the case and as a total novice im not too happy about trying to open it.

    Thanks in advance

    A nice 1950s Tissot watch

    Likely stainless steel case

    Looks like the same case style as the one worn by James Stewart in "Rear Window". Similar dial too, but his had gold hands and sweep seconds rather than sub-dial.

    Very nice condition. Have a watch technician open it up to get the serial off the movement and to see the model. You'll probably want a service for this anyway.
    A fantastic watch to enjoy.

    This watch comes from the era when Tissot was one of the best makers in the popular market. They engineered their own movements and had an association with Omega for a while. Today watches of Tissot from this era are great runners if they have not been abused.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
