A brand that is not afraid to dip its toes in the past, Tissot has a knack for creating timepieces with effortless vintage style. For its most recent trip into the archives, Tissot has resurrected a couple of watches from the late 1930s. An era of classic, stripped-down design with Bauhaus influence, there is a timelessness that makes them feel almost contemporary. This particular quality really comes through in the new Tissot Heritage Gent Auto COSC 1938.

Featuring a versatile 39mm stainless steel case with a box sapphire crystal and a combination of brushed and polished finishing, the Heritage Gent is designed to be an everyday timepiece with a business casual leaning. Clean, balanced dials in sandblasted salmon or black create a sophisticated backdrop to a full set of hour numerals and a railroad index for minutes and seconds. Balanced and precise, the typography chosen is a standout feature of the design. Just below 12 is a vintage Tissot logo, while above 6 is a very important word “chronometre” indicating that these watches are chronometer-certified.

To that end, powering the Tissot Heritage Gent Auto COSC 1938 is an ETA 2824-2 COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres), meaning the movement has been tested and regulated to within -4/+6 seconds per day, which is very accurate. The ETA 2824-2 is also a highly regarded Swiss-made automatic movement with 25-jewels, hacking seconds, hand winding, and a power reserve of around 40 hours. The movement is visible through a display case back showing off a special gold-toned rotor.

About Tissot

Originally called Chs Tissot & Fils, the brand we now simply refer to as “Tissot” was founded in 1853 by a Swiss father and son duo. In the 170 years since, Tissot has continued to grow and prosper, ranking among the top 20 Swiss watch brands globally. A champion of attainable luxury, Tissot watches offer Swiss quality and movements at approachable prices, while also being a regular innovator. Notably, they were the first brand with a 24-timezone automatic (the Navigator), the first with a plastic mechanical movement (the Astrolon), and the first with both analog and digital displays (the Two Timer).

In current times, Tissot continues to offer a wide range of styles, from sport to dress to just fun, a wide range of movements, from quartz to digital to mechanical, and even a wide range of materials, including steel, gold, and carbon. With such a diverse catalog, they make watches for everyone and are a great brand to keep coming back to over the years.
