FS: Tissot Vintage Navigator Cal. 1277 Gradient Blue Dial 1976

For sale a Vintage Tissot Navigator Chronograph from 1976 with Lemania 1277 movement in very good, original vintage condition.

The highlight of this attractive chronograph is the rare gradient blue dial with pleasant patina on the tritium indices and hands and the high quality Lemania Cal. 1277 hand-wound chronograph movement. This is the base movement for the famous Cal. Omega 861 which has been powering Speedmaster's for decades.

An original and attractive high-quality chronograph at an accessible price.
