The Tissot PRX Powermatic 80 shines through the festivities

Whether it’s an opulent gold Christmas or a serene blue Christmas, the festive season exudes merriness that every yulephile seeks in the holiday splendour. This magical season, Tissot is poised to bring joy and happiness to our world with two vivid creations — the Tissot PRX 35mm Powermatic 80 in ice blue and radiant gold variants — calling to mind the bracing atmosphere of a frozen Alpine and the glitz and glamour of disco.

A modern take on the enduring legacy of the ’70s — the watershed moment when the integrated bracelet watches were created to counter the mass-produced quartz timepieces — the PRX 35mm Powermatic 80 is nothing short of luxury and style, thanks to its dashing demeanour crafted by steel and gold PVD case. Made for the myriad of metropolitan life — from bustling workplace to swanky evening soiree — the brand new PRX Powermatic 80 in blue and gold variants not only boast the easy-to-wear 35mm case, but also an automatic Powermatic 80 calibre that offers an impressive 80-hour power reserve. Flipping the watch back reveals a pressure-fit caseback with a sapphire display window that offers us a peek into its self-winding movement, a testament to Tissot’s exceptional watchmaking expertise. The harmony of colour is also manifested through the use of polished steel hands and indexes as well as yellow gold-finished hands and markers, which are evident on both gold and blue variants.

Besides the movement with remarkable power reserve, the watch also features a date display in a bevelled and applied window that allows for the efficient tracking of time; indices and baton hands coated with Super-LumiNova® to ensure visibility in even the dimmest lighting conditions; as well as a water resistance of 100 meters for revelling in any favourite water sports at whim.

When it comes down to the details, the Swiss watchmaker doesn’t take it for granted. Tissot has brought lavish attention to the sporty watch with the adornment of guilloche dial, polished and satin finishes and engraved crown. The watch also comes in steel and gold-PVD bracelet, set off by triple-blade folding steel clasp.
