Tissot Makes it Casual and Affordable with the Heritage 1936

Tax time is nearly over, temperatures are soon to rise, and it is time for a new casual watch.  Versatility does not always describe a casual timepiece.  Large diameters and bright colors on rubber straps are typically what comes to mind.  With the popularity of the Nato strap, the casual watch genre deepens.  The persona of a watch with a nato strap has been so accepted that brands now place them as their primary strap on new timepieces.  The latest from Tissot is a prefect example; the Heritage 1936.

Perfect for that tax time splurge purchase, the Tissot Heritage 1936 boasts a retro 1930s look with a pocket watch feel.  At 45mm in diameter, the steel case has dual sapphire crystals, one protected by a hinged caseback for selective movement viewing.  The other covering the white dial with black enamel numbering.  The font is the focus of this piece creating that retro feel.  Under the dial lies an ETA manual wind mechanical movement with 56 hours of power reserve.  A brown leather nato style strap completes retro 1930s feel of a classic pocket watch on the wrist.

Under the umbrella of The Swatch Group, Tissot is able to create well made mechanical timepieces with affordable prices.  A Shinola watch with this look and quality would set you back $500-$700, and it would be quartz.  With better quality and value, Tissot has made this pre-summer watch purchase a much easier one.  With an MSRP of just over $1000, the Tissot Heritage 1936 is a contender to help say goodbye to those April showers and welcome some May flowers.
