This year, the brand adds a contemporary dash to its most successful pocket watch of the past decade. The Tissot Savonnette takes its name from the term that defines pocket watches with a back and front cover. It is believed to come from the French word for a bar of soap, due to the resemblance to a round soap. The case of this particular model opens to reveal the vintage chic fine hands that go round the Roman numerals. In line with the current and ever growing trends, a rose gold hue complements the cover and case. Other touches of rose gold are echoed on the tip of the second hand, the edge of the date display window and all along the beautiful chain. The bicolour mix makes this piece an easy combination for any outfit. Taking a watch out of a pocket will never have looked so good.
Since its foundation in 1853, Tissot has always offered pocket watch collections. The Tissot Savonnette is a reinterpretation of a model that dates back to the 1930s. The catalogue, at the time, presented a big variety of Art Deco case decorations, such as modern lines. That elegant pattern is brought up to date with the Tissot Savonnette.
It’s time for the past to meet the present.
