Senor Cicak loves watches. He loves reading about watches, window shopping for watches, admiring other peoples watches – but most importantly he likes to own and wear nice watches himself.

His 50th birthday is approaching and I have been doing some research of my own to find a watch to buy him for this special occasion. Men’s dress watches have seen a revival in popularity in recent times and this is exactly the kind of watch that I have narrowed down my choice to.

This review is of the Tissot Visodate 1957 heritage automatic watch showcases the excellent quality that you would expect from such a prominent brand, and this is the exact same watch that I have decided to purchase for Senor Cicak’s 50th birthday.

Shhhh…..don’t spill the beans….it’s a surprise!

This heritage watch combines classic styling with automatic technology and excellent build quality and as well as being perfect as a gift for a special birthday it is also perfect as an anniversary present or even as engagement jewelry – the male alternative to the engagement ring.

Let me share with you what I discovered about this stunning watch.

  • Competitively priced
  • Styled on the 1957 classic design
  • Elegant charm
  • Stainless steel case and hour markings
  • 40mm diameter
  • Accuracy approx +/- 15 seconds per day
  • Not waterproof – splash proof only


The Tissot Visodate is a classic looking watch with vintage styling, enabling you to get the “Mad Men” look at a reasonable price.

The Swiss made ETA movement is a mark of excellent quality, and the advantage of an automatic movement is that it will never need replacement batteries.

In my opinion, this Visodate heritage watch is just the right size – not too big, like so many modern watches and not too small, just like a genuine vintage watch should be,

The watch glass is sapphire crystal, which will prevent it from getting scratched and helps to reflect glare. This heritage watch also has a display back that enables the automatic movement to be viewed and admired.

Whether you are looking to buy a dress watch to wear with a shirt and tie or an everyday watch to wear with jeans, the Tissot Visodate fits the bill perfectly, and would make a perfect gift for the man in your life.
