Mathey-Tissot Mechanical Watch is a masterpiece that pays homage to the brand’s rich heritage dating back to the 19th century. Established in 1886 by Edmond Mathey-Tissot, the Swiss watchmaker quickly gained renown for its commitment to precision craftsmanship and innovative designs.

The 1960s marked a golden era for Mathey-Tissot, where iconic timepieces like the Mechanical Watch emerged. The brand has a long rich history which includes, providing thousands of timepieces for the United States armed forces and the British Navy in the second world war. Mathey-Tissot initially excelled in crafting “repeater” watches, distinguished timepieces that melodiously chimed the hour and half-hour. Building on this early success, the company swiftly expanded its horological expertise to include the production of chronographs, advancing into the realm of precision stop-watches. This particular model captures the essence of that era, boasting a cream dial and distinctive orange aged lume.
