Slipped under this case is a rugged brown leather strap, a reminder of and a homage to the very first wristwatches. These were in fact pocket watches, with arches welded to them so that a leather strap could be slid under the back of the case. Now Tissot is reviving this highly original concept. When the strap is removed, the caseback can be opened to admire the myriad details of the hand-wound movement which marks the hours, minutes and small seconds with a remarkable sense of elegance and vintage style.
