When it comes to shopping for vintage watches on eBay, it can be a gold mine, but it can also be a minefield. Our very own Christoph McNeill (you all might know him as Instagram’s @VintageDiver) wrote a must-read, common sense guide to buying vintage watches on eBay (check out Part 1 and Part 2). So if you’re looking for a vintage watch, but are still a little nervous diving head-first into those murky waters, then don’t worry—we’re here to help. Today, we have another installment of eBay Finds, our series where we highlight some great vintage gems looking for a new home. Happy hunting!
’50s-era Men’s Dress Watch with a Black and Gold Bullseye Dial
Man, this vintage Tissot is a real looker! It has an absolutely amazing two-tone black and gold bullseye dial, and combined with the stepped bezel the frontside of the watch just has a great mid-century charm. The 34.5mm wide yellow gold-filled case appears to be unpolished and features sharp lugs. This beauty even has the original signed crown. According to the seller, the automatic movement has even been serviced, so it should be good to go as soon as you get it.
