    I'm going for early 1970s for the Tissot, using the 2571 automatic movement, this one was shared with Omega at the time but I can't remember the designation nor can be bothered to look it up...

    No, yes, ermm. I read the dial as Automatic something or other, but if it says the other thing then it has a plastic movement, like a Smurf.

    Hello,

    I confirm the Tissot 2280 movement.

    Quite similar as mine :

    Wow that is so interesting, a plastic movement in 1971?? Was this considered a good/innovative thing? It sounds like such a bad idea today.

    Great looking case and dial, though!

    It was not well accepted and a lot of movement have been scrapped.
    The Astrolon didn't give enough quality feeling to make it surviving and cheap movement were challenged by quartz.

    But not everything is lost, the nylon escapement is now used in the ETA C01.211.
