HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the serial number on the movement we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1970. In November that year this watch was ordered at the same time as this ladies Tissot, but it couldn’t be collected until January 1971. Either year could be considered for a valid birth year watch. The paperwork has been double checked to ensure the model and serial number match.
In late November 1970 two watches were bought from Norman Primrose jewelers in Aberdeen, a his and hers set of Tissot Seastar. We currently have both of these watches, and they have each retained the box and papers and original receipts. Both have also had safety chains fitted to the original bracelets. The ladies watch can be found here. It would be nice to think they could stay together, but we have decided to sell them separately if need be. If you would like to buy both then contact us for a deal.
This Tissot is slightly different in not having the name at 12, but instead they have moved it to 9. This balances out the day and date window nicely. The C shape case is all stainless steel and in good order, and has a screw on case back. Inside is a Tissot 794 twenty one jewel movement which is working well. The bracelet has been cleaned in our ultrasonic bath, but it is short and could be swapped for a leather strap if preferred (but the original bracelet would be included in the sale, as we want to keep the originality together.)
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box, papers consisting of the warranty book and the original receipt (£27, about £390 allowing for inflation) and our Certificate of Authenticity.
