The latest heritage model from the elegant, Swiss made, popular Tissot replica watch is the Heritage 1936, a hand-wound model based on converted pocket watches of – yep, you guessed it – the 1930s.
The conventional, newest and interesting Tissot Heritage 1936 replica watch in steel retains that hefty pocket watch case shape, coming in at 45mm plus an onion crown. The brown pull-through leather strap with cream stitching fits through narrow wired lugs affixed to the case.
The dial of the unique Tissot Heritage 1936 replica watch has 24-hour numerals around the edge, interspersing a railway minute track, with small seconds at 6 o’clock and Breguet hands. The prominent black logo against the dove grey centre of the dial adds a natty vintage feel, with the elongated ‘T’ that was used by Tissot into the 1950s. Tissot mens replica watch tends to cherry-pick from its archives rather than sticking with one particular era for its Heritage collection.
There’s the Navigator, based on a 1953 world timer, the Prince I, based on a ‘banana’ watch from 1916, and a 1946 chronograph was recreated to celebrate Tissot’s 150th anniversary back in 2003. The special and well finished Tissot Heritage 1936 replica watch also comes with an officer caseback – a nice touch from Tissot, but it’s slightly undermined by the fact that you have to slide the strap out from the lugs to pop it open and reveal the movement.
