1950s Tissot Antimagnitique (Ref. 66722) "Oversized Case"
In 1853 Charles-Félicien Tissot founded Ch. Félicien Tissot & Fils in Le Locle, Switzerland, with his son Charles-Emile Tissot, a watchmaker. Tissot began as a comptoir d’établissage, which was a network of independent craftsmen who were highly specialized in producing a variety of watch parts, sold to be assembled by various watch companies and then retailed. Tissot’s initial specialty was a focus on luxurious pocket and pendant watches, predominantly destined for the United States market. In 1930, Tissot and Omega merged to form the first Swiss watchmaking association, the SSIH (Société Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogère). Today, Tissot is under the umbrella of the Swatch Group.
Tissot is one of the world’s most prominent official timekeepers for sports, and naturally offers a range of classic sports watches, including this fantastic entry-level collector’s piece for those looking to score a classic watch that won’t break the bank.
