Tissot TS X8 Formula 1

Post11 Apr 2017, 15:32

Another watch found on a local italian second hand website.....as the casio posted before,this one was sold as not working.
An old rayovac was forgotten inside....but a deep clean do the job.It works fine and keeps perfect time: the light is so powerfull (never seen a bulb like that) and it sounds loud. :grin1:
Lovely orange hands,so sporty...so F1....it was 1979 ;-)
Now i need an old Lotus Formula 1 to enjoy at 100% :-D

Super cool! I've got a slightly more used model, with the same "not working due to dead battery" problem. New battery did the trick also :)
