Here is a very rare and totally original Tissot Navigator world time watch that was made in 1953 in a solid 14 carat gold case and looks as good today as when it was made all those years ago. This innovative watch here is from the first generation Tissot Navigators and was launched in 1951 and produced through 1953, a year before the Rolex GMT and quickly became famous for its incredible world time as well as ease to set and read multiple time zones around the world. Make no mistake, this is a very rare and highly collectable original Tissot Navigator and not a later version including the Tissot Navigator Anniversary re-issue model - this is the original and still the best. The central city disk (one location per time zone) rotates once every 24 hours and is read against a fixed 24-hour dial to indicate the time in each zone. The push button uncouples the city disk to allow local time to be set without disturbing world time. Local time (12 hours) is indicated on the bezel with the minute track placed at the farthest edge of the dial. This particular dial combines Bombay and Calcutta into India Standard Time, and replaces London with Greenwich. The dial is all original and has not been repainted or retouched in any way. It has achieved a perfect patina and looks incredible on the wrist. The solid 14 carat gold case is exactly that, solid gold. This is not to be confused with the later gold plated cases or a stainless steel version, and measuring 35mm across plus the crown, it sits so well on the wrist and thanks to the dial actually appears much larger on the wrist than one might imagine. Powered by the lovely 17 jewelled bumper automatic Tissot calibre 28-5N that has just come back from a complete service and overhaul, runs beautifully and comes complete with our twelve month warranty. Certain watches are collectable, and certain watches are rare, and this one is both and is truly one of the finest examples around and one that is not to be missed.
