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.
