Very nice Tissot Sideral in stainless steel and fiberglass from the 1970’s

Tissot was the first watch company to develop a watch in the late 1960’s with a fiberglass case, dial and bezel. This line was from the Regatta Yatchttimers. The watch comes in almost one piece, as this original band is block between the case and back case. It has a round grey dial with two sub dials, one at 12 o’clock for the minutes up to 45 and one at 6 o’clock for also the minutes up to 60. Hands have Obelisque style and chronograph hand is red. This watch was developed to time Regatta, reason of the blue and red areas in the watch. The watch has an outside black rotated bezel graduated up to 25. The crown and chronograph pushers are at 12 o’clock. It is a manual winding watch with caliber 872. The band is original as well as the buckle. Interesting watch to have in your collection.

History

Tissot Cie was founded in Le Locle in 1853 by Charles Felicien and Charles Emile Tissot. Their objective was to supply the world in particular Russia and the United States with quality pieces. In 1904 came the “Tsar’s watch”. In 1920, Tissot started to manufacture their own movements. 1929 is a key moment as Omega and Tissot join their efforts and form the “SSIH” Societe Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogere. Tissot targeted the medium priced market with 42 models. Tissot is known for owning the 28.5N21 automatic caliber, however for its chronograph, Tissot used Lemania movements, its sister’s company.
