It wasn’t until luxury Swiss watch manufacturer, Tissot had been making their own timepieces for a century that the iconic Visodate watch was born. The design was a classic intended to serve the wrists of those with a soft spot for simple time-reading.

Like so many other remakes created by some of the most prestigious watch manufactures in the world, the Visodate Heritage line took inspiration from the original design and kept some signature characteristics present from its predecessor.
Today, Tissot Visodate Heritage watches are classic and beautiful. Created especially for those with an attraction towards retro-inspired timepieces of the past, these watches bear the “Tissot” name on the front of the dial designed in the old logo style. It is one of the most noticeable elements of the entire watch and instantly catches the attention of anyone observing its beauty. The “Visodate” lettering sits just below this and was taken from the original models, adding to the timepiece’s individuality.

Other dials like the sleek black variations are sophisticated and practical for assisting with day-to-day time keeping of any kind. The original Visodate was the first automatic watch to feature a date aperture and so it was important for Tissot to keep this design feature prominent in watches from the Visodate Heritage collection. Keeping up with the pace of a fast-moving world is essential for most men and women, so the date aperture is a great feature to assist with keeping appointments and general calendar organisation.
