The Swiss luxury watch company Tissot from Le Locle, Switzerland, was established in 1853 by Charles Félicien Tissot and his son Charles-Emile. Under Charles-Emile’s direction, they manufactured pocket watches with parts from Russia and the United States. In 1915, the company began producing wristwatches. Between 1920 and 1977, Tissot produced its own movements.
Our 1941 Tissot Antimagnetique is near new old stock. Its 37mm chrome center with stainless steel bezel and case back, slim profile. Its leading lines end with tapering lugs.

A polished stepped bezel supports a domed crystal. The silver dial has an outer minute track. Large Arabic numerals mark the hours. Long elegant syringe hands with sub-seconds at 6 o’clock.

Points of Mention
This watch is sold as "Watch Only" and therefore comes with no original Tissot box or Tissot paperwork, however, the original swing tag is provided. The watch comes paired on a lovely vintage pigskin strap. The dial is in untouched original condition, as are the hands, it is one of the very best dials I have seen, regardless of age. The case is in original condition, never polished or refinished, only signs of marks are where the case has been opened over the years. The movement does come with the KibbleWatches 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.
Some watches we call "Find Another", this is exactly one of those! The condition, size, age, perfection, it all just adds up to an incredible timepiece that will be very very difficult to find another like it! I highly doubt I'll ever see another one, in any condition, but I can guarantee I won't see another in this condition. The dial is truly stunning, the size is just insane for the age, the beauty is breathtaking... It is pieces like this that truly excite me, I'm honoured to be offering such a watch for sale!
