In the following paragraphs I'll show you a first-rate model with an interesting twist to it. Match the Tissot Navigator Yachting chronograph.For a lot of Tissot is really a lower brand, not just like manufacturers like Omega, TAGHeuer watches , Longines and also the others. I think otherwise. Throughout the company's history Tissot produced some of the most intriguing and historically significant replica watches taken from Switzerland. Many occasions these replica watches were groundbreaking also. Consider the first antimagnetic watch, the Tissot Idea 2001 which was the first mechanical watch made of plastic in 1971 or perhaps the RockWatch and then the PearlWatch and WoodWatch. But like in the brands Tissot produced replica watches for divers, racing car drivers, pilots and yachtsman.There was a bent that started in the late 1960s that had been a groundbreaking point for the watch industry. Companies started to target technical sports considerably more seriously. They became heavily included in car racing or yachting as an example. It had been fashionable design revolution. The solid, thin monochrome models were replaced by big, chunky, colorful pieces along with the multicolored scale of the yachttimer just fit this line perfectly. Most of the brands came out with yachting models too. Most famous these are probably the Heuer Skipper or the Aquastar Regatta models.Are you aware? The 1st World War brought a lot of business into their knees in Europe and Swiss watch manufacturers weren't any exception. In order to escape the financial difficulties Tissot and Omega formed an alliance in 1930 and established SSIH (Societe Suisse pour l'Industrie Horlogere). Lemania Watch Co. would join this group in 1932 and have become the producer of not only movements but also in some instances cases at the same time equally for companies. The SSIH was the forerunner to get a much wider conglomerate the earth would know called Swatch Group several years later.The Tissot Navigator Yachting was introduced around 1972 included in the company's Navigator line. This included a few chronographs. Some were branded Navigator some as Seastar and some despite having both names within the dial. The movement inside was the Lemania 1341 rolex retailers . This can be a 17-jewel automatic chronograph movement. Important quite outstanding is the reality that even though it should be a 3-register chronograph, it's not necessarily. The second register is very little sub dial but an additional minute hand that moves about the dial just like a regular second-hand.  A derivative to the movement is the Lemania caliber 1340 which in addition was the movement modified by Omega to make their famous caliber 1040.The main difference between a regular Tissot Navigator using this era as well as the Tissot Navigator Yachting may be the 15-minute countdown scale that runs from 12 o'clock to 3 o'clock around the Tachymeter ring knockoff watch . From 12 to 1 it is colored grey, from 1 to 2 it's blue and from Two or three it's red indicating the final A few moments prior to the oncoming of a regatta. Fifteen minutes before the race begins the contestants be given a sound and visual signal. At this stage they will set off the timer in order that they find out how enough time they have to increase their boats. They are not supposed to cross the commencement line until the Quarter of an hour are up. At this point they ought to be within their best speed and the race. It is rather a lot like flying come from athletics for instance.The Navigator has a great wrist presence it is a decent but not uncomfortably thick watch. The yachting scale is a nice addition to the dial and also a great conversation starter likewise. If you fancy something unusual in the vintage watch world this can just be the watch for you.Should you be interested about the comparison between the Tissot Navigator Yachting along with the Omega Seamaster Yachting read Kevin's post on SomeTimeAgo! replica amazing watches
