At 45mm wide and 12.98mm thick, the Tissot Heritage 1936 is actually large enough to be a pocket watch. In fact, the movement inside of it (a variant of the UNITAS) began its life based on the architecture of a mechanical pocket watch movement in the 1950s. The movement is the Swiss ETA 6498-1 which operates at a steady 18,000bph (2.5Hz) with a power reserve of about 46 hours… More at A Blog To Watch.

Love the design and the fact the movement can be displayed, but that logo just doesn’t do it for me. Amazing how such a small feature can lessen a watch so much.
