Regular price $675.00 Sale

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY IS A SEXY MID 60s TISSOT STADIUM GENT'S DRESS CHRONOGRAPH RUNNING ON A LEMANIA 871.  OUTSTANDING CREME BRULEE PATINA!!! SIGNED 4X

 

  • CASE: CLASSY GOLD PLAQUE CASE IN VINTAGE CONDITION.  SHE MEASURES A DRESSY 34.25 NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN BY 40mm LUG TO LUG.  THIS ONE REALLY WEARS VERY NICE AND MUCH LARGER THAN THE DIMENSIONS WOULD SUGGEST DUE TO THE THIN BEZEL AND LARGE DIAL.  THIS REMINDS ME OF THE SISTER OMEGA SEAMASTER CHRONOGRAPHS OF THE SAME ERA WHICH SHARED THE SAME MOVEMENTS AND MOST LIKELY THE SAME CASE.  THERE ARE SIGNS OF WEAR IN THE GOLD COMMENSURATE WITH AGE, BUT IT ADDS TO THE WARM OVERALL VINTAGE VIBE ESPECIALLY WHEN PAIRED WITH THAT DIAL.

 

  • DIAL: THIS IS THE STUFF DREAMS ARE MADE OF.  THE CREME BRULEE SPECKLED OFF-WHITE DIAL IS BREATHTAKING.  THIS IS THE DEFINITION OF AGED TO PERFECTION.  I JUST LOVE THE SUBTLE HINT OF SPORTINESS ON THIS ONE WITH THE "STADIUM" THEME AND THAT PROMINENT BLACK PRINTED TISSOT LOGO BELOW 12.  NICE SIMPLE STICK GOLD MARKERS LOOK FANTASTIC WITH THOSE THIN GOLD STEEL HANDS.  ALL-AROUND THIS IS A STUNNING DIAL.  

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS STADIUM IS POWERED BY A LEMANIA 871 TICKING UNDER THE HOOD.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING TIME.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN ON THIS ONE.

 

THIS TISSOT IS MOUNTED ON A HIGH QUALITY TAN STRAP WITH CREAM STITCHING WHICH TOTALLY HIGHLIGHTS THE WARM TONES ON THIS BEAUTY.  THIS IS THE DEFINITION OF PATINA PERFECT. PLENTY OF LIVED IN WABI-SABI ON THE CASE WITH SOME FUN SPECKLED AGED PATINA ON THE DIAL.  GREAT PEDIGREE WITH THE LEMANIA MOVEMENT AND SOME DEFINITE SHARED OMEGA DNA. THIS IS A MUST-HAVE.
