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 retail 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 $995.
