Tissot Ref. 6424 -1F steel and chrome vintage wristwatch, circa 1948
A superb steel and chrome mid-sized wristwatch with two-tone dial
This is a fabulous vintage wristwatch that is in outstanding original condition. The dial is exceptional with strong two-toning, a rich lustre, crisp pearled minute track and engine-turned subsidiary seconds dial. The Arabic numerals are executed in a pink gilded foil, are arranged radially around the dial and are toned to match the pink gilded hands for hours, minutes and seconds. The upper case is wonderfully crisp with sharp chamfers to the bezel and the faceted lugs, the steel snap-on back has a presentation inscription which reads: ‘29.4.48 fondest love, Mary.’ The vintage leather strap is fully stitched, appears almost unused, has parallel lengths and is fastened by a handsomely shaped broad pin buckle.
