Tissot Navigator vintage

Tissot Navigator vintage


Brand: Tissot
Typology: Vintage dresswatch
Year: 1952

World Time watches always fascinated a lot of collectors. The thought of being able to see what time it is in different parts of the world in a glace is very appealing.

This is a watch that Tissot made a re-edition of several time but when you see an original Tissot Navigator like this reference 4002-1, it is easy to understand why - charming, full of character and history!

The Tissot Navigator was first released in 1951.

Fantastic to see a real World Timer with automatic movement that early!

Inside is the Calibre 285N-21T, bumper automatic movement. Based on the movement number, our Navigator is from 1952, first mark.

But how it works?

The hands show your local time on the bezel like any normal watch while the different time zones are visualised by the city names on the inner rotating dial.

On the outer dial is a 24h indication, the inner dial rotates one full circle in 24 hours, while the hour hand makes two full circles in 24 hours.

To set it, you align the disc showing your home timezone to midnight. Then you stop the disc using the pusher at 2 o'clock and then proceed to set the hour and minute hands as you always do.
