Tissot has been making fine Swiss watches since 1853, but theirs is a story of pushing boundaries as well as past mastery. Tissot's range of watches runs from classic styles to the very latest in touch-screen technical innovation. Come on the journey as Time+Tide roadtest and review Tissot watches, new and old.

VIDEO: Vintage style done right, the Tissot Heritage 1973 Chronograph

Broadly speaking, heritage-inspired watches fall into two significant camps — faithful reissues or modern interpretations. The Tissot Heritage 1973 Chronograph falls very much into the former camp. And, as far as faithful reissues go, it's awesome. The big picture is the case, which is a hefty, hunky cushion — bonus points for the smart mix of case finishings, which is something you rarely see on a watch, let alone one at this price point. The dial is also a straight-up smash hit: panda-style, with a retro Tissot logo and charming orange highlights. A domed sapphire tops it off and the 7753 is an exceptionally reliable auto that is the perfect choice for this sort of watch. You don't have to be a fan of mid-70s motorsports to wear this watch but, good golly, it would help.

VIDEO: The perfect gentleman – Tissot's Gentleman Automatic

In the field of watch design there's a lot to be said for restraint. Not every dial needs to be flashy, nor every case overwrought. Sometimes, all you need — all you want even — is a watch that looks good (no matter what), and can do anything, or at least anything most normal people would need their watch to do. The Tissot Gentleman is such a watch.  The sober, classically designed case that measures 40mm across, and is neither too dressy nor too casual, sets the tone. That tone is amplified by the lovely dial options — here we're looking at silver and rich brown, with neat sector-style printing, and applied gold tone indices in a slightly tapered shape, which adds a touch of dynamism that is paired with dauphine-style hands. This dial is framed by the gold bezel which — and this is well worth noting — is solid, not gold plate or cap. The final piece of the puzzle is provided by the movement, visible through the caseback. Tissot's Powermatic 80 offers (as you'd guess) 80 hours of power reserve, which is very healthy, especially at this price point. On top of that, there's silicium in the mix as… Read More

The three watches that caught our eye at Australia's first standalone Tissot boutique, located in the heart of Sydney CBD

Brand boutiques are pretty fun spots to visit as a watch lover. Because, choice. And it may surprise you to learn that Tissot very nearly has a boutique for every single day of the year — 361, in fact, including this shiny new example in MidCity Shopping Centre in Pitt Street Mall. It will house by far the largest Tissot collection in Australia, something that was on show to us immediately, when we spotted two lesser-seen models in the first few minutes. You'll have to watch the video to see what we're referring to there. Another fact that tends to surprise about Tissot is the sheer volume of watches the brand sells globally. Here's one to drop at your next dinner party: the Swatch Group brand claim to account for one in every four 'traditional' (which we might read to be mechanical) Swiss-made watches sold. But sales are just one part of the equation here. The Sydney Boutique will also house an on-site Watch Technician to support in-store watch repairs. Tissot has not offered a direct customer service offering in Sydney since 2012 — it will specialise in pressure testing watches, battery replacements, link and strap adjustments, performance testing and cleaning.

VIDEO: Tissot's Chrono XL Classic

Here at Time+Tide we make no bones about our love of Tissot's heritage offerings, but the truth of it is that those old-style pieces make up a small percentage of the brand's line-up. Chronographs, in particular big sporty chronographs like this Chrono XL Classic, dominate the brand, at least here in Australia. And it's easy to see why: this 45mm watch offers plenty of plus-size punch, but enough traditional styling to keep things civil. It's quartz, which means you get a cool little 1/10th of a second register, for all your ultra-specific timing needs. The Chrono XL Classic is also offered in a range of case materials, dials and straps. Tissot Chrono XL Classic Australian pricing and availability Prices for the Tissot Chrono XL Classic start at $475.

VIDEO: An everyday all-star – the Tissot Chemin des Tourelles

A little while ago I posited that the Tissot Seastar 1000 Powermatic 80 was the best-value diver of 2018, a bold claim I still back. Today, it's time to meet the Seastar's dressy cousin, the Chemin des Tourelles. This watch is powered by the same, quite impressive Powermatic 80 as the Seastar, but on the surface it's a completely different looking beast. A 42mm case, with a flashy blue starburst dial with an outer level of quite fancy Clous de Paris style finishing, which goes well with the applied numerals. This Tissot hits a lot of familiar, friendly notes, and is a perfect contender for daily wear in a semi-formal context. And with a RRP of just on $1000 it offers a heck of a lot of value.

VIDEO: The old world charm of Tissot's Heritage Petite Seconde 

Watches — the best watches at least — do more than tell the time. They transcend their function to evoke an atmosphere or a mood. Tissot's latest heritage piece, the Petite Seconde, is a quite wonderful example of this. Sure, it's a 42mm steel piece with a classic manually winding movement, and a pretty classic dial. But it's actually a lot more than that. It's like a warm, shining pebble on the wrist, a watch full of gentle curves and pleasing details. Like the daily winding of the movement, or that dial, it's got a soft, almost satiny brushed finish and some truly lovely printed Arabic numerals. In short, it's everything you want from a heritage-inspired piece, and a great value proposition. TLDR; it's a really nice watch. Tissot Heritage Petite Seconde Australian pricing Tissot Heritage Petite Seconde, $1425. The Tissot Heritage Petite Seconde is available to purchase from the Time+Tide shop.
