The Tissot Visodate marked the 100th anniversary of the famous Le Locle watchmakers. The company has been contributing to the world of haute horlogerie since 1853 and continue to bring innovative timepieces to wrists of the most dedicated luxury watch collectors year after year. The Heritage is a collection however, that will never tire. The Tissot Heritage Visodate was first launched in 1953 and continues to be a popular choice for those gentlemen with affections for timeless designs.
The Tissot Heritage Visodate 40mm watch is a fine example of the brands ability to combine beautiful vintage aesthetics with cutting edge modern technology. A stunning yellow gold, white and brown outfit combines to create something entirely authentic. The 40mm dial has been equipped with yellow gold coloured central hands, carved into needle fine points and a matching sweeping seconds hand that visits a day date at 3 o’clock every 60 seconds. The Tissot brand lettering underneath the twelfth hour markers is lavish and eye catching – the automatic lettering in a crisp black hue sitting proudly underneath. The timepiece has been fitted with an ETA 2836-2 Swiss automatic movement which promises a reliable performance and a 38 hour power reserve. The day date has been dressed in a sharp yellow gold coloured border with stunning black lettering and numbering to enhance legibility for the wearer.
This Tissot Heritage collection also includes the 1936 Mechanical, complete with powerful movement and a visible caseback. The timepiece nods to the transformation made my Tissot, from their trusty pocket watch to an era which called for the sophisticated wristwatch. The historical design parades yet another vintage-inspired design, finished with a brown leather strap and cream contrast stitching.
The Tissot Heritage Navigator Automatic on the other hand, delivers much more in terms of functionality. The perfect traveller’s timekeeper features multiple timezones. Once the chosen country has been selected, the time zone is indicated via the numbers on the bezel. The 160th anniversary Tissot watch for gents cements the brand’s firm beliefs in traditional Swiss watchmaking methods, boasting a COSC certified movement – a manufacture certified by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres.
Whether a dedicated businessman, a retired gentleman or an avid explorer of the globe, Tissot Heritage watches are varied enough and versatile enough to cater for all needs and all tastes. With desirable aesthetics and disciplined dials, there is little not to love about these pure breeds. Tissot Heritage watches are fitted with a variety of leather straps and have been finished with anti reflective and scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass fronts. Despite so many innovations within this iconic collection, the Tissot Heritage Visodate has to be our most popular. Returning back to the famous wristwatch, the design yields an interesting shape and a discreet, slim depth, allowing it to be worn comfortably under the sleeve off an office suit. The no-frills aesthetics of the Tissot Heritage Visodate makes it a loyal companion for gentlemen seeking clarity and simplicity in their watch. The lighter variations, although appearing a clean white from a distance, shimmer with an unmistakable silver patina up close. Tissot Heritage watches are without a doubt, functional timepiece with an added special something.
