1952 Tissot Navigator Worldtimer 4002-2

This vintage masterpiece in exceptional condition, features a sleek design with a world time complication. Allowing you to effortlessly track time across different time zones. Louis-Edouard Tissot oversaw the launch of the Navigator in 1951. Tissot had previously merged with Omega in 1930, and this influence is evident in the Navigator’s calibre 28.5-N21 movement, closely resembling Omega’s early bumper automatic movements in design, layout, and finishing.

Time reading follows the conventional 12-hour format against the outer black track, with corresponding hour numerals on the bezel. The track, calibrated to 60, boasts thicker batons at each hour or 5-minute mark. Meanwhile, the inner revolving disc, marked in blue, showcases 24 world locations. Each location’s time is indicated against applied Arabic and triangular numerals, divided into 24 hours.

To set the local time, the crown is pulled out to the hand-set position, and the inner disc is rotated until the desired city/location aligns beneath the 24-hour numeral or 12 o’clock position. After setting, the pusher above the crown is pressed inward until it clicks, disengaging the central disc. Subsequently, the hands are adjusted to align with the 24-hour numeral or 12 o’clock position.

A very cool and individual watch that you’ll struggle to find another example of!
