Very rare WW1 CHF Tissot & Fils Army Signal Corps Locle Pocket Watch


Available on eBay


Currently not working and missing the second hand. Also some chips on the face. Purchased at a living estate and the old man told me it was his father’s watch in WW1. He said it was issued to Army signal Corps as a watch and his father either requested it in a pocket watch form or had it converted because he wanted to be able to tie the watch to him during combat.

This is the only pocket watch of this model I can find doing research. Just the regular watch goes for thousands at auctions but they rarely come up for sale.

Almost all of my items are previously owned. None of the items are cleaned, altered, buffed, or polished prior to shipping. This will be left to the buyer. Antique, vintage and previous owned items may show signs or wear, tarnish or flaws as this is typical with older items.  

Most items are purchased from higher end estates.  

I combine shipping on multiple orders. Please request or wait for an invoice prior to paying. Combined shipping only applies the current auction. Begin dates and end dates must be the same unless items are purchased as “buy it now” from the store. In most cases I’m able to save the buyer a significant amount when combining orders. There may only be a few cases that I will not be able to save you money.  

There are items also listed as “buy it now” in my store. Please stop by there prior to paying and see what other items you may like to save on combined shipping.  

Items ship the day after payment is received.  

Please feel free to ask questions, and be sure to follow me as new items are posted every week.  

If you’re a VA resident a 5.3% sales tax will be applied and an invoice sent to you. Please request the invoice prior to paying for the item/s.
