FIRST LOOK AT THE NEW TISSOT HERITAGE 1973 CHRONOGRAPH

Post by treyford » Mon Apr 15, 2019 11:22 pm

Tissot is reaching back into their archives for the release of a new chronograph inspired by the brand’s racing heritage. The suitably named Tissot Heritage 1973 Chronograph is a modern take on the Tissot Navigator, a distinctly ’70s chrono with a big cushion case and bright orange accents on a panda dial. This new version, while certainly not a replica of the original, takes the best elements of the 1973 version and updates them for the modern consumer.

I like that a lot. It has strong hints of the MkII Speedy about it, but of course Tissot and Omega were very closely aligned in the seventies, so that makes sense. The colourway is good - and the black hands with white lume inserts make it readable whether the hands are over the panda subdials or on the main part of the dial.

At risk of sounding like a heretic, I think I like this better than the Speedy MkII. Everything about it just...works.
