FS 1947 Tissot Automatic (Bumper) Wristwatch ref. 6546-1 - £375 ONO

    Hello folks.

    Having spent the winter going through boxes, drawers, safes, and padded envelopes containing both watches and parts, I'm now just about ready to initiate a Spring Clean and start letting a few pieces go.

    First up is this Tissot Automatic (Bumper), reference 6546-1, which the serial number puts at 1947.

    - stainless steel case, case back and crown
    - 33mm across (35mm including the crown)
    - 40mm lug to lug
    - 18mm lugs
    - automatic movement (bumper), which I believe is from the 28- series of movements
    - silvered dial has patinated, with a large darker area to the centre of the dial
    - gold coloured hour, minute, and second hands
    - gold coloured applied markers at the hours (1-11), with a gold coloured applied arabic 12
    - printed "Tissot automatic"
    - printed outer second track with arabic numerals at 5 second intervals (60-55)
    - service history unknown, runs but timekeeping not guaranteed, and it should be taken as a given that this watch should be serviced if the owner plans to both use it, and turn up to things on time.
    - NOTE: the bumper springs are damaged. A very good, full length used set are included in the sale (details below).

    The springs that included were gifted to me by the very generous @michael e - and having discussed this sale with him, I suggested (and he agreed!) that his generosity is played forward.

    So £50 of the sale price of this watch will be donated to Brads Cancer Foundation - a charity established in September 2003, to raise funds toward providing equipment for the care and lifestyle specifically for teenagers with cancer in the East Midlands, supporting the development of a Teenage Cancer Unit, with the Teenage Cancer Trust, and providing support to teenagers with cancer and their families.

    A worth cause, I think we can all agree.

    For those that would like to view in person, the watch, and myself are in London - I will also have it at this month's Time 4A Pint.

    Asking Price: £375 ONO plus postage (irrespective of price agreed £50 goes to Brads).

    If you have any questions, please ask and I will do my best to answer them.

    Many thanks
