    Two more for the collection!!

    Well, my little vintage Tissot collection has expanded again, with the addition of these two

    The 1st one dates to 1944 and has a Tissot cal 27 mov't. I acquired it in this condition with one of the hands having come off, and NO mov't piccy lol, but it was selling for peanuts so I took a punt on it, and havn't got round to having a go at sorting the hand yet, altho may just take it to my watchguy for an overhaul. It's small at 32mm accross inc crown, so may see if my good Lady would like to wear it when it's sorted





    The 2nd one is a little more unusual as I've only seen a handfull of these, and always fancied one. It's a 'regular' Seastar model, dating from 1966 with a cal 784-1 mov't, but in a square case, which looks a little different on the wrist, but I like it







    I really need to do a SOTC soon!!

    Thanks for looking

    Two nice additions. I especially like the round one - and 32mm isn't that small.

    2 very nice additions!

    The square case Visodate looks in top condition... it reminds me of the square omega I posted recenlty.. also from the 60s! I have a very similar Tissot to your first pic... almost forgot I had it... its with my watch guy... Hopefully see it again soon.

    Congrats!

    I've seen very much the same dial on a late 30s Omega. And, no, 32mm isn't small. Perfectly wearable.

    That square visodate is a beauty!
    Wear it well.
    I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

    Nice watches. I would wear 32mm without a problem.
