Tissot Visodate Automatic

Tissot Visodate Automatic

A few years ago, Tissot dove into its history to find inspiration.  The watch that caught their imagination was this one, the Visodate.

Originally released in 1953, the Visodate was an excellent execution of the simple, stainless men's watch from the Swiss manufacture in the early post-war era (long before they were absorbed by the Swatch Group).  

Replete with killer 50's styling - including the early, and hard-to-find italicized script -  gorgeous simplicity, light two-tone effects from applied gold markers and sword hands and the robust Tissot automatic movement, it is no wonder that the contemporary Tissot designers gravitated to the Visodate as their inspiration for launching their heritage watch line.     

While we appreciate Tissot's desire to revitalize the Visodate, our affection for truly exceptional vintage things - things that are imbued with a story and a soul of their own - makes us head-over-heels in love with this timeless classic.


Steel Case is approximately 34mm (excluding the crown). 

Overall condition: Completely original, never-restored case is in good condition overall, showing signs of wear consistent with age and use.  Dial bears lovely patination due to age.  Original gold hands and applied markers. Original signed crown. 

Includes 18mm green Aristo strap and two 18mm Crown & Buckle Nylon Straps
