The Bridgeport Automatic Chronograph watch collection is a decent “classic” daily wear from Tissot that also benefits from reasonable pricing. As one of the Swatch Group’s more volume-focused watch brands, Tissot enjoys a few benefits including having a range of products that varies from modern (such as the electronic T-Touch family) to more traditional watches in the “T-Classic” series. Another benefit is well-priced access to “in-house” movements from ETA which is also part of the Swatch Group.
The Tissot T-Classic series fake watches now includes these Bridgeport Automatic Chronograph watches which debuted last year in 2015. Tissot currently offers four different version of the Tissot Bridgeport Automatic Chronograph, which combine the looks of old-world timepieces with modern sizes and materials. I’ve often referred to watches such as this as “baby Breguet,” as they attempt to emulate some of the looks more commonly associated with the high-end luxury watch maker (which also happens to be owned by the Swatch Group). What I am talking about are elements such as a machine guilloche engraved-style dial (likely produced via stamping in this instance), coined-edging on the bezel and crown, as well as the design of the hands and hour markers.
It isn’t that the Tissot Bridgeport Automatic Chronograph replica watch is a retro-timepiece – because in size and specifications, it is quite modern – but it is for people who want a “traditional look” to go with contemporary times. There is certainly a market for that, and if you wear a watch such as this it is hard not to find it appealing in many ways even if it isn’t perfect for jeans and sneakers.
Along that line of thinking, Tissot’s own website actually sums up the reason for wearing one of these watches quite well in saying “elegant choices which will never date.” That’s true – these are for more formal attire, and they’ll never be any more or less in fashion. Call that “timeless,” if you will. Moreover, the various versions of the Tissot Bridgeport Automatic Chronograph combine a few sensible style choices including silver or black dial Tissot replica watches, as well as bracelet or leather strap options.
