Tissot has been building the Navigator model since 1953, initially with a world time display. In the 1970s, the Swiss manufacturer intensified sports sponsorship and particularly supported Formula 1 drivers such as Jacky Ickx, Clay Regazzoni and Mario Andretti in racing. The adjustments to the Navigator are reflected in the present sporty, world-class chronograph version.
This Tissot is in very nice condition and shows no signs of wear. There are no deep scratches, dents, etc., the glass is scratch-free. Please use the high resolution images for reference.
Technically, this chronograph works perfectly and has been newly serviced by our watchmaker.
TISSOT was founded in Switzerland in 1853 as the watchmaking atelier Ch. Félicien Tissot & Fils by Charles-Félicien Tissot and his son Charles-Emile Tissotom. Today Tissot belongs to the Swiss Swatch Group.
Tissot has been producing wristwatches in the luxury segment since 1915 and with its own movements since the 1920s. International expansion was pushed forward very quickly and new markets were conquered with high-quality Swiss products. Because of the collapsing sales markets in Russia, Tissot sought to merge with Omega to form the 'Societe Suisse pour l'Industrie Horlogere' in 1930. After decades of success, the quartz crisis in the 1970s led to the founding of the Swatch Group in 1983, which still owns the company and brand today.
Today, Tissot is one of the most traditional and internationally best-known Swiss manufacturers of high-quality and luxury watches and is a big player in the Swiss watch industry worldwide.
