OVERVIEW

When I first saw this incredibly awesome-looking watch in person, I was instantly mesmerized by its beauty and elegance. This beautiful Tissot Men’s TIST0194301603101 Heritage Visodate Automatic Watch is one handsome watch, and is definitely a versatile watch which can be worn to suit a great variety of occasions.

On the outside, the Tissot Heritage Visodate has a gently curved dial mirrors made of domed sapphire crystal capable of resisting scratches, all within a stainless steel case and a fixed stainless steel bezel. As you can see from the picture shown, it has a silver dial with silver-tone hands and index hour markers with the minute markers around the outer rim. Featuring the date and day of the week display at the 3 o’clock position, it will turn red on “SUN” – Sunday.

As the name suggests, the Tissot Heritage Visodate Automatic has an automatic mechanical movement, meaning you would probably gain or lose a few seconds a day. If you are a perfectionist wanting perfect time, you will probably have to look elsewhere. However, if you are not fuss about having perfect time, you can really appreciate the movement of all the tiny parts working in harmony inside the watch, and be able to see that through its skeleton case back is something wonderful. It is those delicate movements that make an automatic watch such a delight to have them in your possession. (As of writing this, this watch has earned a 4.9 out of 5 stars, scoring a near perfect score from Amazon customers)

See What Other Owners Are Saying About This Watch On Amazon

“I love how easily this watch dresses up and dresses down to fit the occasion. I can throw it with one of my lighter suits and it’s ready for summer. If I match it with a nice black band, it’s just nice enough to be matched with my navy suit for meetings or interviews. It’s versatile, looks more expensive than it actually is, and is comfortable to wear.”

“It has that classy gentlemanly look to it and yet its style is handsome enough to be worn is a myriad of different situations. It’s not overly fancy. I wear it to work sometimes and I also wear it on the weekends. It’s clean looking.”

“Although the quick release on the watch band is nice, the band looks cheap. I replaced it with a leather band with white stitching and the ends, and it looks good.”
