Often times in the hobby of watch collecting, there can be a bit too much focus on what the hot watch of the moment might be - the piece that no one can get, or the watch that everyone wants to own purely so they can say they own it.
But in this frenzy of emphasis on what the next big windfall investment piece might be, there are literally tons of watches and brands which slip woefully under the radar.
Tissot is among those brands.
This steel oversized time-only model dates to the 1930s and offers an exceptional value relative to its contemporaries. Remaining in excellent condition throughout, this particular watch features a textured silver dial with applied gold-tone 'Arabic' indices, a subsidiary seconds register and a stunning blued-steel 'lozenge' handset, and fixed lugs!
But the best part is its nearly forgotten heritage, signified by the double-signed Omega Watch Co/Tissot branding on the dial.
Sometimes a vintage watch doesn't need to shout from the rooftop of its coroneted pedigree or six figure exclusivity. Sometimes all a watch needs to be is understated, old, and beautiful.
Discerning collectors take note - this is just such a watch.
