Tissot nine carat solid gold gents watch dating to 1941, manufactured for the British market. This seventy three year old watch is in very good condition and to have remained in this condition has not received regular use over the years. The case and dial look great and the movement has just been oiled and adjusted so it is is running perfectly and keeping time. The watch is signed in three places, on the dial, case and movement.
Case: 9 carat solid gold measuring approximately 31 mm across, excluding the crown and 34 mm from lug to lug. In very good condition, the case shows the expected signs of use over the years but absolutely no signs of abuse, dents or scratches of any significance that I could see to draw to your attention. The inside of the snap on rear cover is signed by Dennison, a famous British case making company which manufactured cases for many of the high end watchmakers of the time, including Rolex, Omega and Longines. The case is hallmarked as 9K solid gold and bears the Birmingham Assay which dates the watch to 1941. There is also a presentation engraving on the inside of the cover.
Dial: signed "Tissot Non Magnetic", finished in French white with hours marked by gold coloured Arabic numerals. A subsidiary seconds dial is located just above 6 o'clock. The hands are in great shape and the crystal is clean and clear. The dial has just been expertly restored back to as it looked when new.
Movement: Tissot movement, oiled and adjusted by Richard my watchmaker in preparation for sale, running strongly and keeping time. The jewel count is not marked but it will be 15 or 17 jewels.
Strap: fitted with a black leather generic strap which attached to the watch measures approximately 210 mm from buckle tip to last hole.
