Using the same movement as the Breitling Aerospace, this Tissot is a great value option. Model reference J390/490
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
This is quite scarce for a Tissot, and information is also quite limited. However it sits between the late 80’s TwoTimer and the 1999 T-Touch, so we have opted for circa 1997. This matches the date that Tissot started using the similar 988.332 movement according to their own book.
For a 1990’s Tissot this may seem a lot of money, but given that Breitling would charge more than this to service one of their Aerospace models these Tissot versions have been snapped up and sadly stripped for parts for Breitling models. We would not want this to happen to this watch, as it is too good. The Titanium case and bracelet makes the watch very light – at 62 grams it is only 2/3rds of the weight of a similar steel watch. Inside in a seven jewel ETA 988.333 movement. All functions are operated via the crown – digital time, day, date, GMT time zone, chronograph and alarm functions – and they are all working correctly. The bracelet has been cleaned in our ultrasonic bath. We will install a brand new battery before sending the watch out to the new owner and set it up to their timezone – thankfully the instructions can be found on Breitling’s website here.
This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
