ORIGINAL 1970S RETRO WATCH
High quality, very rare and chunky Atronic watch. New old stock and unused. It is immaculate condition and mark free. Made Circa 1970s, Swiss, rare quartz movement Tissot caliber 2030 (Atronic is part of the Tissot brand). The movement was cutting edge technology of its day and to set was is a sequence of pushing and holding the crown like a button - the crown is pushed in for 5 seconds then released then pressed in again to start the second and minute hand whirring around by an incredible little micro motor , without turning the crown . The crown is pulled out and turned to set the hour and date only. These were fabulously reliable and pretty bullet proof movements using metal gears and cogs instead of today nasty cheap plastic movements.
Features a brushed silver dial with chrome/black batons & hands. Date window at 3. The crystal is acrylic. Housed in a chunky chromium plated case with screw down back cover. The bracelet is new but period style and quality in mesh stainless steel that allows it to fit up to an 8" wrist. This watch is in perfect working order and holding time as it should with a new battery just fitted. A collectors dream.
Top case to bottom 40mm, side to side (without crown) 36mm, thickness (crystal to back cover) 12.8mm.
