The ladies version of the His and Her Tissot Seastar models we bought together, just as they were in 1970. Model reference 35522.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the serial number on the movement we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1970. The sales date on the guarantee and receipt is dated 30th November 1970 too. The guarantee 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 s. 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 men’s 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 ladies version has a manual wind 17 jewel movement, which is all working well. The stainless steel case is good, with no dings just light scratches from being worn. The bracelet matches the men’s model, just scaled down to suit and has the benefit of extra links. The silver dial is very clear, and uncluttered without a date window (which also helps if you don’t wear the watch daily, as you do not need to reset the date). While we specialise in birth year watches, these two watches would be a fantastic anniversary gift.
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box, papers consisting of the warranty book and the original receipt (£19, about £275 allowing for inflation) and our Certificate of Authenticity.
