Luxury watchmaker Tissot is celebrating their 160th anniversary this year by releasing their new Heritage Navigator Watch. The Navigator was a luxury watch originally released in 1953, but Tissot has taken to updating it to create an even more elegant piece.
One of the most visible changes between the 1953 Navigator and today’s is the size of the case. Originally a small 36mm, it has now been made to measure in at 43mm. The Heritage Navigator has a stainless steel case with a beautiful black dial. The colors compliment each other so well, the band is also made from black leather. The dial has Arabic numbers and a multitude of city names. You have the ability to choose the city you want to know the time of and the bezel will show the time zone. The face is covered by a crystal glass and coated with a non-reflective cover so that you won’t face any glares. And if you choose to take it swimming, Tissot made sure to create a water resistant watch of up to thirty meters. The back of the watch is skeleton so that you can see the automatic chronometer movement.
Tissot has yet to release a price on their new Heritage Navigator Watch. However, if you are looking for an updated classic piece, this is it. The Navigator is a luxurious watch that is also quite simplistic making for a beautiful timepiece. This is truly a watch that will last years and garnish compliments from everyone. It may be Tissot’s 160th year, but our wrists are the ones celebrating.
