Our first featured Tissot is the Visodate.
First launched in the 1950ís, the modern Visodate is an homage to the original and takes many of its styling cues from its predecessor. With a case size of 40mm and a domed sapphire crystal it fits nicely on the wrist and under a shirt cuff.

MSRP: $695

A recent addition to the line is the Visodate Milanais. This beautiful stainless steel mesh strap lends well to the vintage styling of the Visodate and makes for a very unique and striking watch.

They have some nice watches. There is another "ice hockey" inspired watch in their collection. I'm not sure they know much about hockey though. This was in the description: "The strength of the players, which is seen as they tackle and shoot, is translated by the robustness of this timepiece, while the speed of the players is referred to through the lines on the dial that reflect the marks left by the fast blades on the ice."


09-20-2014, 04:22 PM
Lol, I've never noticed that. I'm going to guess it's an error made when translating from French to English.

I might be interested in the visodate on leather. My collection is lacking a proper suit and tie watch. When should I come down and see you?

09-20-2014, 10:31 PM
Sounds great pylon!
Here are my store hours, I'm always around:
Monday - Wednesday: 9:30am - 5:30pm
Thursday - Friday: 9:30 - 7:30pm
Saturday: 9:30am - 5:30pm

Please give me a heads up if you plan on coming down, I'll make sure I have a Visodate on hand for you to try on.

My wife purchased a Tissot Couturier Automatic from Gem by Carati for me a few years ago, as an enagagement gift, and I absolutely love it.

My question is, what kind of maintenance schedule should I have it on? It has not been looked at since purchase and don't want it to go too long without being looked at.

09-26-2014, 05:59 PM
Excellent, glad you're enjoying the watch! :D
I find every 5 years or so is a good time frame to have the watch serviced.

Tissot is one of the best watches for the money out there.

This week we are featuring the Tissot Heritage Navigator Automatic
COSC 160th Anniversary watch.
Tissot celebrates its 160th Anniversary with a piece first created for
its centenary in 1953, which reflects its love for new horizons.
The Tissot Heritage Navigator is the ultimate travellerís watch, as it
will allow you to view 24 time zones at a glance. Itís also extremely
precise as it features a COSC certified ETA 2893-3 movement.
This is an extremely handsome watch and at under 10mm thick, itís quite
impressive what Tissot has been able to accomplish with the Heritage

Building on the success of the T-Complication Squelette that was launched in 2013, Tissot has released a dressier alternative in the Chemin des Tourelles Squelette.
Tissot uses the same manual wind ETA 6497-1 movement as the Squelette, but the Chemin des Tourelles showcases this beautiful movement in a softer, less mechanical way. At 42mm, the rounded case and thinner lugs also add to the dressier appeal of the new addition. By using smartly designed bridges and plates, Tissot has found a happy medium between showcasing the movement while allowing for high legibility with a skeletonized watch.

MSRP: $2,325

Below is the T-Complications Squelette that was launched in 2013:
This unique timepiece offers a modern take on the traditional look of skeletonized movements. The design, inspired by a wheel, combined with the brushed 43mm steel case, gives the watch an industrial feel not often found with skeleton designs. With its hand-wound movement, the Squelette is beautiful blend of traditional watch making and contemporary design.

MSRP: $2,250

As an extension to the Chemin Des Tourelles squelette line, Tissot has introduced a range of new models to the collection.
The menís version shown in a 42mm case size features the COSC certified C07.111 automatic movement which provides superb accuracy. Keeping with Tissot tradition, this piece offers exceptional value at $1,175

The ladies version shown in a 32mm case size is simply gorgeous. The combination of diamond markers, mother of pearl dial and white leather strap makes for an extremely elegant and eye catching timepiece. To top it off, the automatic movement features an 80 hour power reserve.

Tissot has introduced an extension to it's popular Tradition line with the gorgeous new Tradition Open Heart.
Its 42mm case houses the Powermatic 80 movement which as the name suggests, provides an 80 hour power reserve.
The Tradition is one of my favourite models in the Tissot line up, so the Open Heart will be my next Tissot for sure.

I picked up the the Tissot T-Race Cycling Tour de France 2020 watch from Justin. I wanted a watch that was a little sportier and more casual than my other watches. With the Tour de France going on right now, it seemed like a good choice. As with my last purchase, Justin was great to deal with. The service and product are both fantastic. Thanks again!



09-18-2020, 11:21 AM
Glad you're happy with your new watch and thank you again for the continued support!!
