With a history stretching back to 1853, Tissot has plenty of archive references to provide inspiration for its modern timepieces, and the Heritage family is where these retro designs find a contemporary home.
The latest Heritage watches were previewed at a London launch this week, before going on sale in November.
Tissot says the 2018 Heritage Petite Seconde models follow the same architectural and design principles as a range from the 1940s and 50s but use today’s production technologies, for the highest possible quality.
The collection has a retro domed dial, silver and vertically brushed with the Tissot logo that was in used after World War II, and leaf-shaped hands. The small second sub dial is at 6 o’clock.
They use anti-reflective sapphire glass more commonly seen on high-end watches and are worn on a black vegetable leather strap with folding clasp and a Heritage logo.
Inside the steel case is a hand wound mechanical movement with high end finishes such as blue screws, Côtes de Genève stripes and Heritage logo.
Retail price is £785.
