Looking for an elegant, affordable and simple watch with its own personality? The Tissot Visodate Heritage has all the assets to meet your needs. Let’s take a closer look.
First launched in the 1950s, Tissot gave a new lease of life to the Visodate in 2010, retaining the original logo and unusual typography, among other features. Its strong points? A clear display for the hours and minutes, as well as the day and the date. The same features can be found in the 2018 versions, named the Visodate Heritage. The dials are black, deep blue or silvered white and protected by a curved, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The watches come with a leather or steel strap. All the models have a 40cm-wide case with the automatic calibre ETA 2836-2, including a rotor displayed through the sapphire crystal glass.
This year, the Swiss firm has added quartz-movement models to the collection. Unlike the mechanical watches, the day is not included on the dial. The hands move around a minute track alternating stick-shaped hour markers and figures. The design elements, like the font used in the word Visodate, have been moved to the lower part of the watch, giving a vintage feel to these models.
To suit today’s tastes, there is a whole host of colour combinations on the dial and the case with golden or silver figures. The straps play on different textures. The leather strap is either smooth or embossed, dark brown or natural. The Milanese mesh strap remains an elegant and timeless alternative.
Price: 290 to 350 EUR (quartz) – 570 EUR (automatic) www.tissotwatches.com
