Tissot Heritage 1936 is following up the heritage of Swiss watchmaking art
With the Heritage 1936, the company from Le Locle in the canton Neuenburg revives the tradition of Swiss watches. The design of the timepiece with the vintage charm is oriented on a model from the early time of the company. It is reminiscence to a pocket watch that was launched by the manufactory in 1936. The case of the new interpretation with the name Heritage 1936 has a diameter of 45 millimeters. Not only by these dimensions, the stainless steel watch reminds of a pocket watch. On the dial, there are large Arabic numerals which stand for the time in the morning. Small Arabic numerals indicate the hours in the afternoon. A dark inside circle, the subsidiary second at the six o'clock position and the Breguet hands are further clear borrowings from historical pocket watches. Finally, of course the retro version of the Tissot logo catches the eyes which can only be seen within the Tissot Heritage line – for example with the der Heritage Visodate.
The inheritance of pocket watches
With watches for the vest pocket, the company Tissot has founded its worldwide reputation as manufacturer of timekeepers of excellent quality. The history of the company goes back into the year 1936. In 1853, father and son Tissot established their workshop. There, pocket watches were assembled. After the First World War and with the demand of many men to wear their watches on the arm, the pocket watches were made suitable for the wrist by implementing a simple but effective change. On both sides of the cases, the watchmakers welded arcs and pulled in a strip on the back side. Therefore, this is also made by the Heritage 1936 and this is testimony to the fact that it has accepted the heritage of extraordinary Swiss watches.
View through the transparent case bottom
Also the Tissot Heritage 1936 Lady is based on the original of the iconic model from the year 1936. Here, the design of the dial, numerals and hands and as well the bracket on the watch case refer to the example. The case of the ladies version has a diameter of 36 millimeters and is made of stainless steel. The timepiece is driven by a Swiss-made automatic movement. By the way, it can be viewed through a window at the case bottom. The transparent back of scratch-proof sapphire glass of the Heritage 1936 Mechanical offers a view to the mechanical manual wind movement. The glass bottom is protected by a hinged watch face.
