Tissot cal. 40.5 nickel chrome vintage pocket watch, circa 1935
An exceptional nickel-chrome open-faced pocket watch with two-tone dial
In quite extraordinary condition, this watch appears to be almost unused. The dial is sensational with strong two toning; the dial centre has a high satin sheen whilst the chapter ring has a matt finished surface. To the edge of the dial, the minute track is pearled and gilded to provided added contrast. The chromed case retains superb definition with multi-stepped bezels to the front and back of the case. This is a great example of an Art Deco dress watch.
