This sale is for a Sofior Grey Early Quartz Gents Watch 

New old stock , unused and fresh from 50 years of storage . Circa 1970s, Swiss, rare quartz movement Tissot caliber 2030 and complete with swing tag .

 

 The movement was cutting edge technology of its day and to set is a sequence of pushing and holding the crown like a button -  The second and minute hand whirring around by an incredible little micro motor . The crown is pulled out and turned to set the hour and date only. These were fabulously reliable and pretty bullet proof movements using metal gears and cogs instead of today nasty cheap plastic movements.
