The Tissot Bridgeport Lepine Mechanical is yet another example of the exemplary and timeless design, innovation and commitment to quality that is synonymous with Tissot. It is a perfect addition to the Tissot Bridgeport family of heritage watches of which this historic and renowned Swiss watchmaker is justifiably proud.
The design aesthetic of this watch is crisp and effortless. It has an open face and closed case that give the watch a stylish, tasteful look. There is Tissot’s trademark fluting around the case, which is reflected around both the dial and the second counter. The classic effect is accentuated by the deep blue hands, with second hand which move smoothly as a mechanical timepiece should. Tissot refers to this as the “beauty of movement” of this mechanical watch, with the added advantage of there being no battery. It is not by coincidence that the style of indexes (numbering) is so reminiscent of the Edwardian age and 1920s, giving this pocket watch the look and class of that elegant era.
This pocket watch is restrained refinement at its very best. It evokes a golden age when real men were gentlemen and where one’s pocket watch was masculine yet refined and understated – and undeniably Swiss-made and expertly crafted. It is made for the man who is comfortable and confident in who he is, and who appreciates a watch that epitomizes a refined, classic time and design.
