Tissot C263 quartz watch

Today, it's a Swiss watch for a change with another model by Tissot.

This watch seems to be a model C263 and has this number on the back and at the bottom of the dial. It has 3 hands, but they are arranged in a 2 hand main dial with a small seconds hand dial in the bottom half. It has a slim case in gold colour with only a thin bezel around the dial. The dial itself is very uncluttered with a white face and simple gold hour markers. The only other things on the face are the Tissot name, and the text "C 263 Swiss".

Tissot is a Swiss watch manufacturer which started as a family business in 1853. They have become well known as a luxury brand, and have had many firsts over the years.

This model looks like it is one of their earlier quartz models, and that would suggest a 70s or 80s date, but that is just an educated guess.
