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: 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.

EVENT: Watches, whisky, Brownlows – Tissot hosts 6 of the best for AFL's big night

Last night the Australian Football League (AFL) celebrated its night of nights, the Brownlow Medal. Regarded as one of the most important events on the Australian sporting calendar, it's akin to American Football's Heisman Trophy or the world game's Ballon d'Or. Needless to say, it's kind of a big deal around these parts. Especially (at least for us) when there are watches involved. At an intimate event held just prior to the players' stroll down the red carpet, Tissot welcomed six of the league's best to their Brownlow Suite at the Crown Towers Crystal Villa room — fitting each one with a new model from their collection, as they took part in an exclusive tasting of the World's Best Single Malt Whisky, sourced from Australia's own Sullivans Cove Distillery and valued at $11,000 a bottle. Co-hosting the event was Hawthorn midfielder Tom Mitchell, who walked into the event as the heavy Brownlow favourite after an impressive season that saw him average 35.3 disposals a game, with a record-breaking 848 on-field possessions for the season. To no one's surprise, and with 28 votes, he strolled out with the Charlie around his neck, and Tissot's dressy Chemin des Tourelles Powermatic 80 on… Read More

ANNOUNCING: New in the shop, the handsome AF Tissot Heritage Petite Seconde and why we rate it

This morning we are announcing a new addition to the Time+Tide shop — the Tissot Heritage Petite Seconde, see the listing here. Tissot's heritage game has been unimpeachable the last few years, with the Heritage 1948 causing quite a stir last year, and the solid, tidy and classic Petite Seconde making 2018 a one-two punch. Perhaps the central argument for these pieces, which reflect the depth of the brand's 165-odd year archive, is the value proposition. They have style, they have movements found in more expensive brands' watches — so there's a big tick there in bang for buck — and they have the all-important Swiss-made provenance. Like most people in watchland, we rate them. Always have. Here are a few reasons why we've chosen to offer the Heritage Petite Seconde in the Time+Tide shop, with highlights of the watch from our main man Felix Scholz's review last week: 1. It's a flat out looker, and the case size at 42mm is right The case is refined and dressy, full of pleasing curves, giving it a warm, pebble-like feeling. The crystal is a nicely domed sapphire, held in place by a narrow, polished bezel that proves some contrast to the case middle and… Read More

IN-DEPTH: The Tissot Heritage Petite Seconde 

The story in a second: Tissot's latest heritage release is another hit. In these days of the never-ending vintage revival, it seems that every brand has to have a heritage collection, regardless of whether they have any actual heritage. That's not a problem Tissot has to deal with, as the brand dates way back to 1853, a depth of history that's reflected in the strength of their current heritage lineup. The latest member is this handsome fella, the Tissot Heritage Petite Seconde, a hand-winding hero based on a 1943 design, which is entirely suited to the modern day. The dial There's an interesting story about this reissue, and it centres on one word on the dial. The Heritage Petite Seconde is a tribute to an antimagnetic watch from 1943. When the watch was originally shown at Baselworld this year it featured a line of text reading 'antimagnetique' under the wonderfully retro, sweeping Tissot logo. As you can see, that word is no longer there, likely because, while the watch was antimagnetic 70 or so years ago, technology has moved on, and it wouldn't be accurate to call the watch antimagnetic by modern standards. And so, now that the watch is… Read More
