#speedytuesday     Managed to get one of the kittens to stay in the light box today:    

Morning Mathey-Tissot 'Renaissance' (Cal: Sellita SW 200)

Today this 38mm aluminium-cased Festina from the original Swiss makers, Stüdi & Fils (Festina Watch Co) who registered the brand name in 1902.

Nothing to do with the now Spanish-owned brand and produced long before the infamous “Festina Affair” of 1998, today’s effort dates from the 1950s and runs on a 17j ETA 1120.

Swapped to an authentic Parnis (not a swiss copy) for shed tidy and tip run - now done.

these were a bit of a sales flop


I didn't understand that until I realised that TH also released the Carrera and Monaco reissues at the same time, which soaked up the sales from the Targa Florio

That double coin edge looks wrong/weird.

How very dare you - it was very useful to scrape some bird poo from one of the slabs and then wedge the door of the garden centre open whilst getting the trolleys out :thumbs_up:

The Kickstarter arrived, in spite of the global pandemic starting just as it was due to go in production…





I like it – cheap, retro, solid build, sapphire glass, Seiko mecaquartz movement, good lume, drilled lugs, nice package …  

They probably made too much of the NASA 'connection', and it's interesting that references to Neil Armstrong have now been removed from the website, but it's only a bit of fun, not a lifetime marketing mantra like some other 'space' watches we could mention :laugh:
