Christmas and meals, they go connected at the hip. Style-wise it’s regularly a blend among tasteful and easygoing. What’s more, that’s precisely why this Tudor could be a decent pick.

As Balazs referenced in his audit of this Tissot Heritage 1948 Chronograph : “Surely it is a watch you probably won’t have the option to wear with shorts and a tank top on your holiday.” No, yet during Christmas, this may be the watch to tie on. It has such countless exemplary subtleties like the sloped drags and the vintage Tissot logo. With 39,5mm in breadth, it likewise checks the ‘size’ box. For €1380 you get a great deal of value for the money, including an ETA 2894-2 chronograph development. The rotor and development are pleasantly improved and make the search for Christmas complete.
