Dreyfuss & Co 1925

Post by androo »

I went into Leslie Davis the other day to buy a Tissot as they were in the sale. After a bit of a mooch around. My eyes came to rest on this. As i was shown it and the assistant opened the hunter back i made a strange noise and the next thing I remember was handing over a deposit ( :? ). Today I paid off the rest and now own said watch. Never been a fan of Dreyfuss watches but just fell in love with this. This was the day after not getting a C1 in the sale so needed cheering up.
Anyway. it is an automatic. can't see any marks on it to suggest who made the movement and Dreyfuss don't like telling. It is 42mm without the crown which is at 2 o'clock. It has a hunter style case back that opens to reveal the exhibition back. The movement is plain which is a slight dissapointment. The dial has guilloche engraving with blued raised numbers and blued hands. not sure but think the strap is leather with alligator pattern. The box is huge and nicley made and the insert comes out so it can be used for other things.

one more next to a C2LE for size comparison. Poor photo but camera now playing up so cant do anotherImage
And the really good thing is I was given a £100 voucher to use there next month so my long over due Tissot motogp 2010 will be the next.

Thats really rather fine. I acquired a 1925 with salmon coloured face earlier this year on the strength of some pictures on here.
Enjoy!

That's very nice androo.
I never knew they made a Hunter back and I thought i'd seen them all.
I never seen one of those before.I have a salmon faced 1925 but it looks nothing like yours.
I shall have to investigate further now,think I want one. :( Oh my poor wallet is groaning.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy :D

They are sneaky like that. You think that's it and they bring out a new model or an interesting variation of an old model and you think "that's nice" and there goes the money. :lol:

Tell me about it Ian :lol:
Dreyfuss I believe are owned by Rotary and I seen a few Quartz Rotarys that look like 1926s with Sapphire glass going very cheaply on The Bay from time to time.Have been tempted but they normally gold plate and I don't really like gold plate.
Appear to use the same cases and case backs to. :D

Fair enough :) Can't say that it floats my boat particularly, but then I've only got one 'modern' Tissot....a PRS516, altho the new Visodate looks nice :D
