Tissot Heritage 2018
This year at Baselworld Tissot presented a lot of watches that caught my attention. Probably the most beautiful in the Tissot collection was the Heritage 2018.
Tissot is inspired by its great history with the elegant Tissot Heritage 2018, which looks back to a wristwatch that was part of the Tissot collection in 1943. Originally a men’s watch for the city, it was a dapper and resilient choice thanks to its case made from nickel-chromium alloy with a small second, and 27 mm calibre, a Tissot exclusivity. Furthermore, this watch was part of the iconic Tissot Antimagnétique collection, launched in the 1930s and comprising the first non-magnetic wristwatches in the world.
A modern update
Today’s contemporary models pay tribute to the past with its design. The new Tissot Heritage 2018 adheres to the same principles as the original models but uses today’s new production technologies, for the highest possible quality. A domed dial, silver and vertically brushed with the Tissot logo of that time, reflects the past, demonstrating that attention has been paid to every single detail. The ‘box’ type antireflective sapphire glass is more commonly seen on high-end watches, while leaf-shaped hands and a black vegetable leather strap with folding clasp and a Heritage logo will make a stylish statement. A mechanical movement with manual winding, and luxurious finishes such as the blue screws and Côtes de Genève and Heritage logo, all ensure smooth running and give a beautifully luxurious touch.
