    Tissot Militar



    This arrived this morning. Working well - and cost me £48.62. The gold numerals are hard to see, except at an angle.



    The movement looks clean. The SN is 1471978 - which makes it 1944. I think a Tissot 27-2:

    The case back has a different number - 1426480 - which is 1943.


    Have I bought a marriage here? I like it anyway, but thoughts appreciated.

    Looks like genuine mil style watch to me with that style of dial and that kind of shock protection.Only hands badgers me-why are they gold tone when they should be mil style too?

    Thank you. I've looked at a few pictures on the web - many have dauphin style hands. Some have similar hands (feuille or leaf) to mine.

    But mine look very clean and are probably replacements.

    The hands are appropriate to the time. This had to have been a fairly high end piece for Tissot in '44. I have never seen this model but it looks real to me. Nice catch!

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

    I as well haven't seen this model before. Mil style yes, but definitely a civilian model. Any Tissot with the logo of that era is automatically extremely attractive and highly desirable in my mind.

    Agree,but not to this watch particularly I would say.Mil style hands,luminous,would fit much better.

    Thank you Eeeb and Erik. No issues re the differing serial numbers then?

    Numbers on casebacks usually bear no relationship to serial numbers on movements... they are independently made and 'randomly married' when produced.

    Re: Tissot Militar

    You didn't happen to acquire that from a certain online auction site did you, as I was watching one just like that until very recently, and half thought about going for it, to add the, erm, one or two other Tissots I have, but am watching something else too, so this one slipped by!!

    Nice catch though.....I like some of the Tissots from this period
