Tissot gives a new life to the classic model released in 1916, which was later nicknamed “Banana” due to its long rectangular curved case that follow the shape of the wrist. Maybe some people will say that the Tissot Heritage copy watch with black dial looks similar to the Cartier Tank. It reproduces the outstanding craftsmanship in the early of 1920s, unveiling a hard trip from Russia to Switzerland on the wrist.
The iconic feature of this classic Tissot fake watch is the striking art-nouveau style. As one of the representative of Art nouveau watches in 1920s, the original “Banana” has strong natural decorative style: curved case and specially designed irregular Arabic numerals, which are rarely seen among the Tissot models.
It was sold to Russia initially and one year later, it was sent back to Tissot for maintenance. However, due to the import limit and outbreak of the October Revolution, the watch couldn’t be returned to the owner. It had to be preserved in Tissot Archives, adding legendary brilliance to the story. The Heritage “Banana” were created to pay tribute to the history. The knockoff watch with black leather strap meets the pursuit of contemporary people for boldness and retro style.
