Titoni introduces five new models inspired by the Felca originals from the 1950s – the Heritage Bicompax 94019, a vintage edition of the brand’s 1950 Felca model, and the Heritage chronograph 94020 series, based on the Cafe Racer sports motorcycles. Felca was TITONI’s sister brand for most of the 1950s and early 1960s and was widely popular in the Western world and the Middle East. The Felca watches used a caliber called Landeron 148, developed by the Swiss company with the same name, known for producing some of the sturdiest chronograph calibers at that time.
The timepieces have been skillfully re-designed and handcrafted by experienced watchmakers at Titoni Ltd. Expert craftsmanship and meticulously integrated complex watchmaking characterize these brand-new Heritage watches.
Titoni Bicompax Heritage 94019 Chronograph
The Bicompax 94019 mimics the original Felca model from the 1950s and features a vintage design. This new watch comes with a tachymeter, a telemeter, and a chronograph (stopwatch). The watch also features two subdials (one for the small second hand at 9 o’clock, and one for the timed minutes at 3 o’clock) and a date window at 6 o’clock. The chronograph buttons are fixed outside the case, like in the 1950s and 1960s.

This watch features fonts that recall writing styles from the 1950s and the original Titoni logo. The watch uses “Cathedral style” hands tapered to a point with curved tips, characteristic of luxury watches originating from the 1950s. The “Cathedral style'” hands and Arabic hour markers are coated with Superluminova in “Old Radium” style, giving a slight beige hue in daylight, adding to the vintage appeal.
The domed sapphire crystal glass over the dial is another tribute to the Felca original from the 1950s. The transparent case back offers a beautiful view of the complicated chronograph movement.
Titoni Heritage 94020 Chronograph – Modern & Retro
Inspired by the café racer model of the 1950s original, the Titoni Heritage 94020 series features four different models. There are two dial options, black or silver, and a choice of either a taupe leather strap or a stainless steel bracelet.
The Titoni Heritage, 94020 Chronograph timepieces feature a stainless steel case with a diameter of 41 mm and a lug to lug distance of 49 mm. There are two subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock and a date window at the 6 o’clock marker. The bar markers and hands are coated with Superluminova, as are three dots at the 12/3/6/9-o’clock positions. The two chronograph buttons at 2 and 4 o’clock positions are fixed outside the watch case, as they were in the 1950s. A sapphire crystal shielded by anti-reflective coatings adorns the case backs, allowing you to see the movement and the engraved Titoni logo without any obstructions.
The new watches have a water resistance of 50 meters and feature a pushdown crown with the Titoni logo on the 3 o’clock position.

In addition to having a 58-hour power reserve and 28,800 beats per hour, it has 27 jewels to reduce friction over time and an integrated anti-shock system that maintains accuracy under duress.
