Tissot has been a luxury brand since its founding in 1853 in Le Locle, Switzerland. They have been revered for their quality since day one and have been a brand that has stood the test of time. We don;t see too many ladies Tissot Wristwatches but when we do we acquire them because their quality is superior. This one is not only an 18k Solid Gold watch but it has a very unusual "Slotted Lug" that allows the band color and texture to peak through. This was De Riguer circa 1969 when this beauty came to the United States from Switzerland. It is an elegant size measuring 17mm in diameter, by 23mm lug to lug, by 6mm in thickness (including the crystal). The silvery dial is accented by the faceted edge crystal. This has the effect of sparkling like a diamond just at the perimeter of the dial. The entire look is very unusual. The movement is a manual wind, 17 jewel gem that is winding, setting and keeping time just like it did back in 1969 when it headed for our shores from Switzerland. If you have been looking for a special ladies vintage wristwatch then this may be the one for you! Remember all of our timepieces come with a one year warranty for parts an labor.
