1970s Tissot Seastar Navigator Chronograph

Finding a vintage mechanical watch in a case that measures 38 mm or above (pretty much the starting size for a men’s modern wristwatch), is not an easy task. As you may already know, in the 1950s, 60s and 70s - men’s wristwatches were much smaller, and so finding a larger modern sized watch from that era — can be quite difficult. Especially if you want one in good working condition.

To highlight the recently launched Tissot T-Race Nicky Hayden Limited Edition 2013 watch, Tissot invited us to the brand new Austin, Texas Circuit of the Americas race track to watch the first annual MotoGP US Grand Prix motorcycle race. During our stay, we met with Tissot brand ambassador — 2006 MotoGP World Champion and Ducati team rider — Nicky Hayden. We asked Hayden about his input into the new version of his watch and he said, “I had some input into the strap for the 2012 model, specifically I asked for the Ducati racing stripe to be included on the strap, which is a design element carried forward to the 2013 model.” Please hit “Read More” to learn more about the Nicky Hayden T-Race watch and to see some shots from the 2013 Austin MotoGP race which took place April 21, 2013.

Pre-Baselworld: Tissot Heritage Navigator 160th Anniversary

March 3, 2013 | Baselworld, Tissot

Next month at Baselworld, Tissot will launch a vintage inspired worldtimer to celebrate their 160th anniversary. The Tissot Heritage Navigator is based on a model originally created in 1953. It can indicate 24 different time zones at a glance. Just set the watch to the capital city of your choice, and the corresponding time zone can be read off the numbers engraved on the bezel. The movement is COSC certified and is visible through the clear case back. Although this is a vintage design, the case comes in a modern 43 mm diameter. Water-resistant to 30 meters. Silver-toned dial comes with a brown strap and the anthracite dial comes with a black strap.

The Tissot Heritage Visodate

Introduced this year at Baselworld — and inspired by 1950s Tissot Visodates — the new Visodate Heritage is an excellent modern reinterpretation of a classic. Particularly, the larger case and dial, and old school “Tissot” signed dial, make for a very attractive timepiece that is consistent with today’s styles. (Vintage Visodate timepieces display the date only; new version displays both the day and date.)
