This 1948 Ladies Tissot has a tobacco dial and stainless steel case, and is currently fitted on an expandable bracelet.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the serial number on the in house movement we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1948.
Probably the most striking feature of this watch is the dial. The tobacco colour looks too even to be caused exclusively by age, and the arabic numerals are not tarnished, so we think this colour was from the factory. The fact that the case was designed to be waterproof also helps this, as the smoke would not have a route into the watch (smoke stained dials are normally on the crown side, where the smoke seeps in. Waterproof cases have seals here to stop water.) The movement is working nicely, and we have cleaned the expanding bracelet in our ultrasonic bath. If you would prefer a leather strap this can be done for you.
This watch will be supplied with a presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
