Description

As innovators by tradition, Tissot celebrates its historic ties to motor-racing with a re-issue of a seventies style chronograph. The Tissot Heritage 1973 proudly flaunts its membership of Tissot’s historic stable. It symbolizes the partnership that brings together Tissot and the Kessel Classics racing team. Meeting contemporary requirements, this 43 mm wide chronograph, with a silvery grey dial featuring matte black counters, is available in a limited edition of 1973 pieces. The overstitched black calfskin strap is a reproduction of the one Tissot had invented and patented in the 1960s, characterized by its large perforations. It alludes to pilots’ steering wheels of the time. To power this racing machine, Tissot has fitted a reliable, powerful and tested engine, the ETA Valjoux 7753 self-winding movement.

Sapphire

Know-How

Sapphire

A sapphire crystal gives a watch the following properties: extremely high resistance to impact and superior screen and hand readability thanks to its transparency. Because it is the strongest material after diamonds, it is used in fine timepieces for its anti-scratch prowess. Sapphire crystals can take many forms and give the watch a variety of looks: flat, domed, concave or ground.
Water resistance

Know-How

Water resistance

All Tissot watch cases undergo several tests, including a water resistance check. Tissot tests the watch's ability to resist impacts and pressure, as well as the penetration of liquids, gas and dust by replicating the real-life conditions in which the watch may find itself.
Mechanical Movements

Know-How

Mechanical Movements

A Tissot mechanical movement contains an average of 100 finely manufactured parts. The balance wheel lies at the heart of the movement and ensures its accuracy. With its constant backwards and forwards movement, the balance and the balance spring divides the time into equal portions, thereby accurately regulating the movement of time. The movements of the balance spring, called oscillations, are what causes your watch to “tick”. The balance wheel’s total oscillations equate to 385,000 turns a day.
