Description
This Tissot Navigator 4002-50 dates back to the 1950s and is an extremely rare world time watch in 18 karat yellow gold case.

When Tissot released a tribute to its Navigator World Timer in 2013, the original vintage version finally got its deserved attention. The world time watch features a rotating disc with 24 cities, each representing a world time zone. When combined with the gold-colored 24-hour ring, the time can be read in all 24 time zones simultaneously. Tissot decided to move the hour numerals to the outer bezel, creating more space on the dial. As a result, the dial remains uncluttered and very legible despite the amount of information.

The world time watch is powered by the in-house manual-wound caliber Tissot 28.5-21 with a sweep second hand. When the crown is pulled out, the time can be set. The city ring rotates with the hands. If you press the small button at two o'clock and then turn the crown to set the time, the city ring does not move allowing to set the current time zone.

The case is made of solid 18-carat yellow gold. Overall, the watch has a very warm and noble appearance on the wrist. The exceptional bracelet made of solid 18-karat yellow gold also contributes to the amazing vintage look. Although it is not a Tissot bracelet, it comes from the same era as the watch.
