    Does this look like an original watch face....?????

    This was listed as a 1943 Tissot Aquasport
    The serial number (1340634) check out with Tissot
    The watch face - I'm told it is original, would appreciate opinions from those more educated than I in old / vintage Tissots
    Do you think this is an original
    watch face?

    Original dial with a nice patina. Also the hands are original but not the crown.

    I have seen several 1943 examples and they all had the same crown.
    in '43 Tissot didn't have the "T" on the crown (I believe)?

    I correct myself; the crown is probably right.

    I know nothing about this watch, so take what I have to say with a grain of salt . . .

    I do know how to Google "vintage tissot antimagnetique aquasport" and if you do so, you can spend an hour or more looking at various images of similar watches and you may be able to come to a reasonable conclusion couple with the advice that you will get from actual knowledgeable people here.

    I found this watch:

    This led me to conclude that the fonts are similar if not identical to your watch. Note the difference in the "3."

    One thing I notice on the other watches I have found of this type is that the subdial generally has the concentric circle textured feature - whatever the correct term is I do not ken.

    Good luck,

    ~ Joe

    Only by the look, the dial seems original. It is "weathered" but still uniform witch is a good thing.
