Here we have an interesting 1972 Tissot 'Tissonic' with the tuning fork cal 2010 (ESA 9162). This watch oozes 70s design. It has a large TV shape case, with a 'freuency wave' patterned deep blue dial and quick set date at 3. Since this is a tuning fork based movement you also get a smooth sweeping second hand rather than a tick.

 

The stick hands are lumed, as are the baton hour markers. The large thick case has a brushed top with polished sides and screw down case back. 

 

This also comes on it's original Tissot stainless steel bracelet which also has a brushed finish and is currently quite long though has easily removable links.

 

ESA Cal 9162

This movement uses a tuning fork system and is considered the 'Rolls Royce' of it's kind, designed by Max Hetzel, who was responsible for the initial designs of the Bulova 214 which was the first movement with this technology.

This movement was also used by other top Swiss makers such as Omega, Baume and Mercier, Longines and Eterna.
