Lot Essay

This unusual timepiece represents Tissot's approach to the famous world time complication, allowing for instantaneous knowledge of the time everywhere in the world, at a glance. This model was produced mainly with a base metal gold plated case, but the present watch sports the much rarer 18K solid gold case. This trait, when coupled with the wonderful condition of the piece, makes this timekeeper one of the most attractive examples of this model ever to appear on the market.
