New Old Stock Tissot Astrolon Idea 2001- The First Plastic Movement Watch 1970!

I have one of these in my own collection and I just love it- for the history of the watch, for the look of the watch and because everyone that sees it says- OOOH MAMA...

This was basically the forerunnerof the Swatch watch, made by Tissot in 1970 and was the worlds first self-lubricating movement. The process meant that the watch was made out of only 52 parts. Of course the watch wasn't a success and nearly put Tissot out of business, but that doesn't mean that we can't appreciate the great looks and lines of this historic timepiece.
