    Hello all, I'm considering this Tissot and would like to ask if everything looks to be correct. Any other comments are of course welcome.

    Stainless steel case (35mm, excluding the crown) shows some scratches and dings. Hands and crown are said to be original. Dial has some freckles, as might be expected. The movement is a 27B-1, which looks to be correct against photos from ranfft. The serial number dates to 1956. Seller is asking about 200 usd.

    I found a Seastar from the late 50s that has a similar dial/handset, so that was encouraging.

    Would be interested to know if the hands are correct. Possibly re-lumed? And if there are any concerns on the dial. Thanks.

    From what I can see the dial looks original and the lume is as well. Case looks honest. Dinged up a bit but I wager unpolished. Nice one!

    For USD 200, you really can’t go wrong with this whether it’s redialled or not - and I don’t know enough to pass a comment.

    But, it’s a classic style which you’ll enjoy wearing and these old hand winders are inexpensive to service and repair. As @mrbreen said, 'nice one'.

    I'd but that in a heartbeat for $200.

    Thanks everyone. I wasn't really looking for an Antimagnetique, but this one presented itself and it seemed like a good value. I appreciate the comments and will post some photos when it arrives.
