user29684_pic51296_1352157186

When I got married a few months ago I was given a very special present by my bride, a beautiful Tissot Visodate automatic watch. I had had my eye on this one for a while and was overjoyed to finally have it on my wrist. Buy it Now on Amazon

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.

Now 60+ years later the Tissot Heritage Visodate captures the style and glory of this amazing watch with gently curved dial mirrors, domed sapphire glass, both geared to showcasing a clearly visible day and date.

I love this watch and thought it would be my go to watch for every special/fancy occasion…boy was I wrong! Its my go to watch every day!! There has not been a day since I got married that I have not worn this watch, it is the perfect dress watch complimenting any suit and tie occasion and the perfect casual watch looking great with an oxford shirt and sailing shorts.

The style is not the only great thing about this watch, the value for money is amazing. The fully automatic movement is made by the Swatch group and its quality can be seen from the rear window. The glass is not cheap quality but hardened sapphire crystal, and all of this on a watch that costs less than £500.
