Tissot Heritage 1973 Chronograp­h 43mm satin-polished stainless steel case, black calf leather strap


The Swiss brand first engaged with motor racing during the Fifties, finding its greatest success in the Seventies sponsoring entrants at the Le Mans 24-hour endurance races and claiming a podium first place with French car builder Alpine at the Monte Carlo Rally World Championsh­ip in 1973. This year’s Heritage release revisits Tissot’s original mechanical racing watch, the Navigator, fairly faithfully while adding new tweaks. Inside the polished steel 43mm case, the three-dial panda layout is highlighte­d with green Super-LumiNova indices and sporty little neon-orange counters, the date window is reposition­ed between 4 and 5 o’clock, and it’s all mounted on a period-perfect black perforated leather racing strap. Limited to an appropriat­e 1,973 pieces, the race is on to catch up with one. BF £1,615; tissotwatc­
