Key Features

A charming ladies watch from a time of close cooperation between Tissot and Omega, both members of The Swatch Group. The Tissot 2700 / Omega 1100 movement was made in the same factory, which at the time was producing both Tissot and Omega movements. A small plastic cap is signed ‘Tissot’ on this one, but an identical calibre movement can also be found marked ‘Omega’.

The watch features a beautifully preserved frosty dial, that dances in the light as the watch moves. Design is minimalist, thin radial indices fit symmetrically in the rectangular steel case, with thin black hour and minute hands. It also features a signed winding crown, a valuable detail. We’ve fitted it with a brand new 10mm genuine black leather strap, which will feel great on an already very wearable watch design.
