The trend of vintage inspired pieces continues to flow into the watch market with another affordable beauty from Tissot.
The Tissot Heritage 1948 chronograph, based on a 1948 chronograph from the brand’s museum collection, is a classically sized steel Chrono with a Hesalite, not sapphire crystal face. Inside the 39.6mm case is an ETA 2894-2 automatic chronograph movement featuring a date window at the four-hour marker.
Aesthetics wise, I think Tissot have hit an undeniable home run, harmoniously combining the original 1931 logo and heritage lugs, with an almost minimalist off-white dial void of a technical scale outside of a well-spaced sector ring. The hands are elegant and the textured subdials add an interesting dimension to the overall appearance. Finally, Milanese bracelets continue to grab my attention even if the case back is a tad over the top.
The Tissot Heritage 1948 is priced at US$1,400 on leather and $1,450 on the Milanese steel bracelet.
