Hi All,
Needed help to confirm the year for a vintage Tissot Seamaster I am considering purchase of.
Have been told its from 1973 but the serial number on the movement only seems to have 4 digits (2571) which seems way too short. From what I've researched online, Tissot serial numbers for 73 should be 1617400 to 16811999?

Any help very much appreciated. 1973 is my birth year so pretty important I get this right!
Thanks in advance
Paulo

Hi

Firstly, it's a Seastar, not a Seamaster (that's Omega) and the 2571 is the mov't calibre...... bidfun-db Tissot_2571: Tissot 2571

There should be a long serial no' on the mov't somewhere (possibly on a small plastic 'medallion'?) as you pointed out, probably 8 digits long.....if you find that then you can date it :)

Thanks JohnnyMonkey,
That helps. Don't actually have the watch with me but will contact the seller for further checks.
Many thanks for the tip
