Our Take

Tissot goes a long way back, all the way to 1853, and the amount of awards they have won over the years is endless, this fact makes it surprising that a Swiss brand can still be so affordable, but it is! This Tissot Ballade dates back to the mid-’90s with its stainless-steel case and gold coin rimmed bezel – dial, hands and crown with logo, it manages to pull off a retro style without being overstated. It has a precise Tissot quartz movement, which works as it should and keeps good time, all encased under a sapphire crystal which clearly shows the stick markers and the date, located between 4 and 5 o’clock. A stainless case back, stamped Swiss Pack #C217/317C completes the watch, and measuring around 24mm in diameter and 28mm from lug to lug, it’s rather petite. The bi-metal strap is original with a butterfly clasp and will fit up to a 6” or 15cm wrist approximately. Things to point out; the dial is ageing, the crown has some damage to it and the strap is fading in some places. The watch comes without original box and papers but will have a gift box to accompany it. It has not been pressure sealed, so please do not use it near water.

About Tissot

“Innovators by tradition” has been the phrase behind Tissot since the founding of the company in 1853. As proof of that, they’ve been responsible for: first mass-produced pocket watch, first pocket watch with dual time zones, first to make watches from plastic (Idea 2001), rock (RockWatch), mother of pearl (the Pearl watch) and wood.

Also introduced the ‘T-Touch’ technology in 1999, which have touch-sensitive sapphire crystals to control functions.

They now work with a number of organising sporting bodies to develop ever-more accurate timing solutions, whether that’s cycling, motorcycling, fencing or hockey. Notable wearers include Grace Kelly,
James Stewart and Nelson Mandela.
