In this article I will show you an outstanding model with an interesting twist to it. Meet the Tissot Navigator Yachting chronograph.

    The versions I've worked on had the 1341. This one looks like the same layout.

    Don't out the Tissots - there are a couple of us who have snagged some real bargain pieces compared to their Omega cousins.

    I stand corrected.
    Apparently, the 24hour subdial @ 9 was Omega only.

    Kind regards,
