Tissot retailers will start receiving the Heritage 1948 collection this autumn.
The range, first unveiled at Baselworld, is inspired by a Tissot watch that dates back to 1948 and which is part of the brand’s museum collection.
At the time, Tissot produced numerous chronograph gents’ models designed for engineers, technicians, doctors and sports men who needed a reliable and precise timekeeping instrument.
The new collection remains true to that philosophy in a 39.5mm steel watch housing an accurate Swiss-made automatic movement that can be viewed through a see-through caseback.
“Tissot has taken a historical beauty and combined it with an up-to-the-minute style. The new models have a lighter coloured case that play with satin and polished finishes for an elegant result. The Roman index at 12 o’clock and the useful date display between the indices 4 and 5 add a contemporary touch. This collection offers models with sophisticated black or brown leather straps or a trendy Milanese bracelet. It’s time to unite past and present,” the company says.
