Interesting Listing
Really a WWI (1914-1918) watch?

Vintage Military trench watch Tissot | eBay

"This watch i purchased from an antiques dealer. It is a military issue tissot from what i have been told. I cannot open the case back because i do not have the tool.

The watch runs sets and winds. I do not know how accurate it is. The bottom of the dial read swiss model. The dial is very clean and sais tissot windsor.

Trench watches were all made with similar swiss movements. Therefore it may not be stamped tissot. The reason i knoe is because i have another trench watch that does not have a brand name stamped on it. "

Tissot Wilitar was a new one for me and I don't think it's a Tissot at all as the case back is wrong. And I guess the case is more the style around WWII.
The whole thing, I think is wrong!

That's not a Tissot, it's a Fissot!:-d

Probably a redialed "Antimagnetique" model from the 1950's.

Seller hasn't a clue.

What a mess.

I agree.
You should post here your new Hamilton acquisition, to demonstrate the difference.

Take Care

It doesn't even say Windsor on the dial so he must be even more blind then me.

Therefore it may not be stamped tissot
He is funny this one...

Is he joking around or looking to con someone?

He could just be dumb of course... We all know that no one will buy it right?

You don't have to ask me twice! :)

Not a military watch, although watches with this movement may have been worn by American soldiers in WWI:





Grade 983, made prior to 1917 but not cased by Hamilton until the early 1920's. Rare enamel on metal dial.

A real Hamilton, not a phony Fissot.
