Tissot 18K Yellow Gold 1950s 33MM First Twisted Lugs Case JP Gold Tang RareTissot
For auction is a rare 1950's Tissot 18k 33mm JP case caliber 27-T 15 jewel manual winding with original 18k tang buckle. This is a special Tissot; its a Fab Suisse dial indicating it was for the home markets (Switzerland or France) and the case is exceptional: this is the beginnings of the famous twisted lugs case which is really an amazing thing to see. A petite but delightful watch that doesn't feel too small because of good dial size and a 17mm strap width. Vintage Tissot perhaps doesn't get the respect it deserves and maybe that will eventually change; they are a real deal in a see of overly expensive examples from other brands.
