    It has nothing to do with Switzerland, if that's what you're asking...it's got made in China written right on it!

    It's a real watch in that it tells the time, but it's not a real antique if that's what you're asking. It's a reproduction.

    And I would assume it has nothing to do with Mathey-Tissot either .

    Unless the firm has opened up in China and is still making pocket watches (which I doubt) then this is a forgery and not a reproduction, and depending on the exact wording in the listing on Ebay you may be able to demand a full refund.

    Martin always thanks to your help...i asked the seller he said this is not a forgery and it is a real Mathew Tissot but again he is not giving me any other strong evidence to prove it. the watch was not so expensive either the item no is as follows

    The back case FADA Industries Inc is also a question mark if it is a real Tissot then why it does not have a marking there..

    I had a very quick look at the Mathey-Tissot website, and it seems that they only make wristwatches now ... but I didn't spend much time on their site so I may have missed something. Certainly I saw nothing to suggest that they manufacture in China, or that they manufacture pocket watches at all..

    You could email a couple of phoitos to them and ask them. If as I suspect this is indeed a forgery then they will be very interested to know they exist! Either way, they should be able to tell you immediately.

    all I could find.


    Fada Industries, Inc. engages in designing and marketing watches to the mass merchandisers and department store channels. It offers watches with design-oriented licensed names, including Wrangler, Gloria Vanderbilt, Kenneth Cole, Gitano, Gloria Vanderbilt, Converse, Sierra Club, Sasson, and Futura. The company was founded in 1976 and is based in Long Island City, New York. As per the transaction announced in July 2000, Fada Industries, Inc. is a subsidiary of The Geneva Watch Group, Inc.

    47-50 33rd Street
    Long Island City,

    closed down and bought out by the Geneva Watch group http://www.genevawatchgroup.com/

    both companies source their components from asia.

    and this..

    Thanks dAz57 for valuable info on FADA Inc and I will be looking forward to hear form you all ...
