    Vintage Gold Tissot Question

    I recently came across this watch for sale and I had a few questions for the people that know more about Tissot. Would I need to take the case back off to determined if it is solid gold? Also would the case seem to be the original watch box? Also does the Royal blizzard strap look to be original? By the way I do know it's a woman's watch but I might be able to get a good deal and maybe give it to my mom is a gift. But I don't want to spend money on gold plated.

    Any amount of info will help! I think it's typical that if the case back is gold coloured, the watche is solid gold but I'm not sure with Tissot. Pictures below..

    Is that just dirt on the lugs or is it brass showing ? if the latter then its gold plated . Opening this watch wont be easy as it looks like a front loader , you will need to get it to a watchmaker

    Looks like quite a bit of wear on the case and the hands seem to show corrosion. Only you know whether giving a watch in that condition might send the wrong message. Also consider that the movement will need a service for about $300.

    You may want to consider new watches from Tissot instead.
    Tissot has a wide range of interesting ladies watches some of which have a similar dressy look.

    I wouldn't be too sure of that. The style is in overall agreement with the rest of the watch and the length is OK - since there is no minuterie, the minute hand only needs to reach the indexes and it certainly does that. I have seen plenty of ladies' watches in which the minute hand comes nowhere close to the edge of the dial.
