    Looking for info on this Vintage Tissot

    Hey everyone,
    I posted a while back on an Omega redial watch and got some great information. I was hoping to receive some feedback on this Tissot. Any and all information is welcome, I have thick skin and don't care how things are worded. I am looking for...

    A rough date of manufacture?
    Whether or not this is an completely original example? (I suspect that the crown and maybe even the case are not original or simply overly polished based on photos of other watches).
    There seems to be damage to the dial, right of the 3, that may have been touched up, what do you think?
    The dial looks like an original radium dial to me, what do you think?
    What model is this and can you find photos of other examples?

    Literally any information you may have would help me out.

    Thanks in advance for the effort,
    John

    Unfortunately, I can't look past the overpolished lugs ; that's a deal-breaker for me on this one. The case-back also looks very aggressively polished. From the style, I'm going to say 1950s, but that's really just a guess. I think that the dial and hands look ok, with some damage and touching-up, as you mentioned.
    busmatt and Shum like this.

    The serial number dates it to ca 1953.

    From the cleaned rust speckling on the movement and the dial damage around the crown I’d suspect water penetration though the stem tube at some point.

    Nice! Not so different from mine from 1954 (Ref. 6883)

    We don’t provide valuations in the vintage watch forum. The default response is to check eBay sold listings for similar watches.
