  • Catalogue Essay

    Mathey-Tissot, not to be confused with the firm Tissot, was founded in 1886 by Edmond Mathey-Tissot in Les Ponts-de-Martel, Switzerland, and specialized in complicated pocket watches. However, the firm soon began to manufacture high-quality chronograph movements. During the 1914 Kew Observatory competition, Mathey-Tissot entered six observatory chronometers with split seconds timing, which all achieved a “Class A ‘ rating with the note that they were “especially good”.

    By World War I, the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers commissioned Mathey-Tissot to provide them with precision chronographs. Breguet also looked to the firm in the 1950s, when it chose them to produce and assemble the now iconic Breguet Type XX chronographs that were used by the French navy.

    The present lot preserve in excellent condition accompanied by the box, blank certificate and hangtag, with its large 40 mm case and sharp lugs facet, it offer great value for connoisseurs that are fan of exotic steel chronograph wristwatches.
