Also, the design pattern of its twisted lugs represents the vintage design elements place to its heart.
The opaline silver dial shines very distinctively with a single 12 o’clock marking done in the classic Roman numerals. The back of the dial features a half-and-half window design slightly flaunting the movements and showing up the Tissot Heritage engraving over it.
