Tissot Gents Heritage Visodate Automatic Watch

Back in the 1950s, Tissot celebrated its centenary with a series of innovations, one of which was the integration of a date function to the automatic mechanism in a watch called Visodate. The Tissot Heritage Visodate translates nostalgia into contemporary timepieces dedicated to detail. A gently curved dial mirrors the domed sapphire glass, both geared to showcasing a clearly visible day and date.

About Tissot

Tissot, founded mid-nineteenth century in a small town in Le Locle, one of the cradles of Swiss watchmaking, has a rich and fascinating history.

On July 1st, 1853, Charles-Félicien Tissot, fitter of gold cases, founded the comptoir Ch. Félicien Tissot & Fils, with his son Charles-Emile Tissot, a watchmaker. At that time, Tissot works as a comptoir d’établissage, which consists of a network of independent workers who are highly specialised and who produce the different watch parts at home, that are further assembled and sold at the comptoir. Back then, Tissot timepieces are pocket watches, luxurious pendant watches or complication watches, destined mainly for the United States, which is the first market. Then, Russia becomes the main outlet of the brand.

At the end of 1917, the limited company Chs. Tissot & Fils SA is created and becomes a manufacture with the introduction of movement-blanks production, which it will remain for decades. Before long, the company strengthens its presence worldwide.

In 1930, Tissot and Omega merge to form the first Swiss watchmaking association, the SSIH (Société Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogère).

By the 1970s the Swiss watchmaking industries is seriously affected by the crisis, which arose from the arrival of the quartz. In 1983, Nicolas G. Hayek who is mandated to audit the watchmaking sector, recommends the merger of the main groups of watchmakers at the time: the SSIH (mainly Tissot and Omega) and ASUAG (holding regrouping the manufacturers of movement and component blanks). The group called SMH (Swiss Corporation for Microelectronics and Watchmaking Industries Ltd.) becomes The Swatch Group in 1998. From 1996, the management of Tissot is entrusted to François Thiébaud.
