Regular price $449.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A TOTALLY SWANKY LATE 60s TISSOT T-12 COMPRESSOR CASED GENT'S DRESS-DIVER...JUST SERVICED. SIGNED 5X

  • CASE: CLEAN AND CRISP SOLID STEEL COMPRESSOR CASE MEASURING IN AT 35mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN BY 42.2mm LUG TO LUG. THE WORKMANSHIP ON THIS CASE IS INSANE WITH ALL THOSE SHARP EDGES AND BEVELS WHICH REMIND ME A BIT OF SOME OF THE SKIN-DIVER CASES RELEASED AROUND THE SAME ERA. THE CONDITION IS PRIMO HERE WITH ALL ORIGINAL FINISHES INTACT. CHECK OUT THAT RAD RAISED SHIP INSIGNIA ON THE CASEBACK!!! THIS ONE JUST COMES TO LIFE ON THE WRIST. 

 

  • DIAL: HOT DAMN!!! THIS IS SUCH A DROP-DEAD GORGEOUS DIAL. SEXY SILVER DIAL WITH JUST A HINT OF PATINA. CHECK OUT THOSE COOL CHUNKY ARROWN MARKERS AND THOSE HEAVY DUTY SWORD HANDS. MY FAVORITE DESIGN ELEMENT IS THAT TRAPEZOIDAL DATE WINDOW AT 3....AND THERE'S EVEN A RAD DATE WHEEL WITH OPEN 6s AND 9s. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS WELL MANNERED GENT RUNS ON A CLEAN SWISS 21J TISSOT AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT WHICH HAS BEEN KEEPING GOOD TIME AND WINDING EFFORTLESSLY. WATCH HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY SERVICED AND IS READY FOR ACTION!

    I'VE GOT THIS COMPRESSOR MOUNTED ON A BAD-ASS LIZARD STRAP WHICH MATCHES EXCELLENTLY WITH THAT DIAL.  I EVEN HAVE THE ORIGINAL TISSOT TANG BUCKLE MOUNTED ON THE STRAP. THIS T-12 VISODATE IS REALLY AN ALL-ROUNDER.  THE T-12 CASES WERE TISSOT'S VERSION OF THE EPSA COMPRESSORS UTILIZING THE SAME LOCKING TECHNOLOGY WITH THAT SCREW-DOWN CASEBACK TO ALLOW FOR MAXIMUM WATER RESISTANCE.  T-12 INDICATED 120M OF WATER RESISTANCE, WHICH IS QUITE A LOT FOR A DRESS WATCH.  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.
