With the Le Locle Régulateur watch, Tissot shows the legend of the Swiss watchmaking tradition on the wrist. In fact, this type of watch with a standard clock type is inspired by the standard clocks in large workshops. In the past, watchmakers used them to check the accuracy of the assembled watches. In the 18th and 19th centuries, precision standards could not be compared with what is customary today. The accuracy error at that time was measured in minutes instead of seconds. This is why their minute hands are not only longer than usual, but also stand out in the center of the dial.
For the standard clock, the hour and second hands were not important at the time, so some were above the dial and some were at 6 o’clock. This Régulateur watch is from the LeLocle product series, which brings together the brand’s most classic and successful mechanical watches. Therefore, the Régulateur watch will present a distinctive reading effect. This Tissot LeLocle Régulateur watch also expresses an elegant and slightly alternative temperament at the same time, collectors will surely understand.
