Tissot 33.3***Black Gilt Sector*** 1938
Tissot Early 33.3 Chronograph, Stainless Steel Case, Black Silver Gilt Sector Dial, Circa 1938
Serial: 917944 / Mvt 3346
Circa: 1938
Reference: N/A

CASE: 36mm, Stainless Steel, Snapback Case with Tissot name and serial on the inner caseback

MOVEMENT: Caliber 33.3, manual wind column wheel chronograph, 17 jewels

DIAL: Black Glossy Sector dial with silver printing, outer telemeter scale and inner snail tachymetric scale. Steel handset.

BRACELET: Black nubuck leather 20mm (fixed bars)

CONDITION REPORT: Good overall condition, the dial shows signs of ageing with some typical ageing, but overall stunning with clearly visible graphics. There is some discolouration on the very edge of the dial underneath the crystal. The case is in good condition, with some light scuffs and appears unpolished. Movement was fully overhauled after photography in June 2020 (2 photos of movement added after service).

NOTES: An extremely rare example of a late 1930s chronograph, arguably in the most desirable configuration : black gilt sector dial.
