BACK TO THE ROOTS
With the new Heritage Visodate, Tissot proves once again that its heritage is a great source of inspiration for creating contemporary watches at an affordable price.
Tissot has delved into its archives for the design of the Heritage Visodate watch. With a rich heritage accumulated in its 166-year history – the company was founded in 1853 – the brand from Le Locle has here taken inspiration from a watch released in 1954. The main features have been preserved alongside some new design elements. And the results are interesting, since the Heritage Visodate has a classic shape overall – a bit like a watch you might have pinched from your father or grandfather – with a vintage design feel and the inclusion of the old Tissot logo on the dial, but without the outdated aspects of older timepieces. This is a piece filled with character, providing a nice effect on the wrist for either men or women, and at a very nice price, since it costs under 400 Swiss francs.
This new watch by Tissot is worn with a Milanese mesh steel strap, a brown or black grained calfskin alligator-feel leather strap or a coffee-coloured, pink or peach-orange, smooth leather strap.
Price: 295 CHF (steel on leather) – 325 CHF (steel on steel) – 365 CHF (PVD steel on leather) www.tissotwatches.com
