    Vintage Military trench watch Tissot

    Interesting Listing
    Really a WWI (1914-1918) watch?

    Vintage Military trench watch Tissot | eBay

    "This watch i purchased from an antiques dealer. It is a military issue tissot from what i have been told. I cannot open the case back because i do not have the tool.

    The watch runs sets and winds. I do not know how accurate it is. The bottom of the dial read swiss model. The dial is very clean and sais tissot windsor.

    Trench watches were all made with similar swiss movements. Therefore it may not be stamped tissot. The reason i knoe is because i have another trench watch that does not have a brand name stamped on it. "

    Tissot Wilitar (China redial?) was a new one for me and I don't think it's a Tissot at all as the case back is wrong. And I guess the case is more the style around WWII.

    That's not a Tissot, it's a Fissot!

    Probably a redialed "Antimagnetique" model from the 1950's.

    Seller hasn't a clue.

    What a mess.

    I agree.
    You should post here your new Hamilton acquisition, to demonstrate the difference.

    It doesn't even say Windsor on the dial so he must be even more blind then me.

    Therefore it may not be stamped tissot
    He is funny this one...

    Is he joking around or looking to con someone?

    He could just be dumb of course... We all know that no one will buy it right?
