Vintage Tressa Automatic

Recommended Posts

Love this Tressa, not sure of the age but it looks like 1970's, it's in great condition, JoT tells me it is new old stock, no idea what the movement is, I will have to wait until someone has a look. At 36mm it is about as big as I can manage, it is also quite a thick watch. Day is changed by rotating the hands and the date by a button at the 4 position,

Your Tressa looks good on you , congrats on your new acquisition . In the 70s they normally  used A .Schild movements  , yours is probably the AS 5206

I do too, it is classy compared to many of the '70's offerings.:yes:

The Rados  of that era were quiet striking too.

It's not jewels, if you check the dial at 9 position it says 21 jewels

No idea what it means

there are a lot advertised with a 25 jewel movement i wonder if the dial was intended for that movement? As soon as you type tressa 25 into goggle it comes up with loads of examples.

seems odd ive just done a google search on it and they seem to all have 25 jewel movements in that era i wonder if its a cross over?

there seems to quiet a lot of info on WUS on them.

I don't think it is odd, 21 jewel AS movements were very common on the 1970's, in fact all those pictured on the WUS thread are 21 jewels and a quick search on EBay shows that nearly all of them are 21 jewel AS movements so I am not sure why you think they all seem to have 25 jewels.

@rolexgirl it’s interesting as their are a few models with the 25 on the dial 

have a look at wus, they used 17 and 21 and 25 to denote jewels from what i can gather, they are also saying there was a bit of mix and match going on, when tressa went bust in the qtz crisis and nos cases and dials were bought and assembled in the far east and sold on, thats how some of them have pieced it together, over there, of course its all guess work, but it makes some sense.

Why would they put 25 on a shield and 21 jewels on the dial if the shield denoted the jewels? There are several on ebay with 99 in the shield, 99 jewels? I don't think so!

So far I have seen 25, 27 and 99

Haven't seen 17 or 21
