In 2013, Tissot celebrates its 160th anniversary with a special timepiece that was first created for the brand’s centenary in 1953. The new Tissot Heritage Navigator Automatic Watch that will be officially presented at the upcoming Baselworld 2013 (from April 25 to May 2) is intended for all world travelers because it boasts a 24 time zones.
The ultimate traveler’s watch will help its wearer to be right on time, no matter what its location around the world may be, with its automatic chronometer precision, officially certified by COSC (Contrôle official Suisse des Chronomètres) and its multiple time zones.
Once you set on the country of your choice, the time zone will be shown by the numbers on the bezel. If you want to check the time in some of the other 23 countries, you will do that just by reading the time displayed on the related capital that is indicated by the minute track on the dial in front of its capital.
The Watch that Reflects the Love for New Horizons
This vintage looking watch is equipped with the Swiss made Caliber 2893-3 automatic mechanical movement. Since it shows multiple time zones, you will be able to take into consideration the time differences, for example, when organizing some quite important conference calls with business partners from different parts of the world.
The new Vintage Tissot is housed in a round, masculine case with the diameter of 43mm and the thickness of 9.6mm. The total weight of the watch is 79 grams. The case is shielded with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and provides water resistance up to decent 30 meters (about 100 feet).
Tissot has prepared two models of the Heritage Navigator Automatic Watch. The first version that matches a silver dial and a brown leather strap (the referent number is T078.641.16.037.00), and the second one that sports a sleek, black dial and a matching color strap (the referent number is T078.641.16.057.00).
These jubilee models will be officially unveiled in April at Basel watch fair. The visitors of the Baselworld 2013 will also have an opportunity to see the new Tissot Luxury Automatic that is powered by the completely new movement – the Powermatic 80.
The Heritage Navigator perfectly illustrates what the Tissot stands for with its essence of tradition and that touch of innovation. Since its beginnings in 1853, when Charles-Felicien Tissot and his son, Charles-Emile, started to produce timepieces in a small Swiss town, Jura, Tissot has grown enormously in Switzerland, as well as in the rest of the world. Today, Tissot is the largest traditional Swiss watchmaker in terms of volume. It is represented in 160 countries on five continents.
