The Tissot Heritage 1936 is a reinterpretation of a piece that was in Tissot’s collection in 1936. Although the inspiration comes from a watch that dates back to the wristwatch revolution of the 1930s, when they started dominating the market, this version also pays tribute to the very first attempts.
It was after the impact of World War I that men started to wear wristwatches rather than pocket watches for practicality reasons. The watchmakers started by taking pocket watches and welding arches on each side of the case in order to slip a strap at the back, as to create a watch that could be worn on the wrist.
The leather strap stays true to the first watches with a fine-looking crème stitch detailing on the beautiful quality brown leather strap that also serves to strengthen it. After removing the bracelet, the back of the case can be opened to view the magnificent works of the movement.
It is also perfect to inscribe personalised engravings. The hands are reminiscent of high-end watchmaking in the old days.
