    Old face, new face

    Hello foreros of WUS (Spanish for members of this forum).
    I´d like to share these pics from a Tissot Antimagnetique , caliber 27T , late 40´s, early 50´s, that have received "plastic surgery" .

    I found this watch a year ago , and I thought it was very interesting because of the wide dial. This is only an optical illusion , due to the almost absence of a external bezel, as the case is "only" 37-38mm. However the dial wasn´t in a good shape , and I didn´t like their hands .
    I ´m not very fond to dial restauration so I think I shall to deal with it.
    A couple of months ago , browsing in the Net in a well knowed vintage watches "shop" I found to my surprise a dial that seems to fit with my watch.
    Ok this is the "new" face of an old buddie.
    Hope you like it.

    Saludos

    Hi -

    Outstanding "update" of a real classic. You were very, very lucky to find a new dial and the right hands. Congrats!

    Beautiful dial, but I prefer the old hands.
