RADICAL~NEAR MINT 70s TISSOT PR-516 GL AUTOMATIC

RADICAL~NEAR MINT 70s TISSOT PR-516 GL AUTOMATIC

Regular price $550.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A TOTALLY SWANKY EARLY 70s TISSOT PR-516 GL AUTOMATIC IN NEAR MINT CONDITION. SIGNED 5X

 

  • CASE: CLEAN AND CRISP SOLID STEEL TONNEAU CASE MEASURING IN AT 36mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN. THIS CASE LOOKS LIKE IT WAS HARDLY EVER WORN. THE ORIGINAL FACTORY BRUSHING ON THE CASE TOP AND BRACELET IS IMPECCABLE AS IS THE MIRRORED SIDES. TOTALLY UNMOLESTED AND SHARP SHAPE.  SOME VERY MINOR NICKS AND TINY DINGS ON THE LEFT SIDE OF CASE, BUT MAN.....THIS THING IS TIGHT.  I'M NOT ALWAYS AN INTEGRATED BRACELET FAN, BUT IN THE CASE OF THIS WATCH THE WHOLE LOOK IS TOTALLY SEXY AND EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE . 

 

  • DIAL: HOT DAMN!!! SO MIGHTY FINE.  CHECK OUT THAT RADICAL DEEP BLUE BRUSHED METALLIC DIAL.  THE MAGIC OF THIS PARTICULAR PIECE IS THAT SILVER CHAPTER RING THAT IS SUSPENDED ABOVE THE DIAL CREATING AN AWESOME SENSE OF DEPTH AND CASTING COOL SHADOWS UPON THE WATCH FACE. IT'S REALLY QUITE THE SITE TO WATCH THE HOUR HAND PASS UNDER THE MARKERS. I LOVE THE CLASSIC WHITE TISSOT HANDSET. USUALLY THE LUME IS ALL BURNT OUT ON THESE, BUT THE TRITIUM IS STILL PRETTY CREAMY ON THESE. THE POP OF ORANGE ON THE SWEEP SECONDS HAND REALLY PLAYS NICELY WITH THE BLUE 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS WELL MANNERED GENT RUNS ON A CLEAN SWISS 17J TISSOT 784-2 AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT WHICH HAS BEEN KEEPING GOOD TIME AND WINDING EFFORTLESSLY. QUICKSET IS ACHIEVED BY ROTATING TIME BETWEEN 2000-2400.  WATCH WAS RECEIVED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT IT HAD BEEN RECENTLY SERVICED AND IS RUNNING LIKE A TOP.

    THIS PR-516 GL COMES ON ITS ORIGINAL SIGNED TISSOT BRACELET WHICH IS SIZED FOR MY 6.75" WRIST AND HAS 6 ADDITIONAL MICRO-ADJUSTS, SO SHOULD AT LEAST ACCOMODATE A 7.75"+ WRIST .  THE PRESIDENT BRACELET IS AS CLEAN AS THEY COME WITH HARDLY A SCRATCH ON IT. THE POLISHED SIDES LOOK IMPECCABLE AND THE BRUSHED TOP MATCHES PERFECTLY WITH THAT ON THE WATCH CASE. I LOVE THE SUPER TAPER THESE OLD BRACELETS HAD GOING ON. THIS TISSOT WOULD MAKE A GREAT EVERYDAY WORK WATCH OR WOULD FIT IN PERFECTLY UNDER A DINNER JACKET.....AND, THAT DIAL!!!! WHOEVER GETS THIS ONE IS GONNA BE ONE LUCKY BASTARD.
