The famous Tissot PRX collection

Must we still make its presentation? The PRX watch from Tissot is now a (young) icon of the Maison. The watch had a great – I mean – a huge success with a generation seeking their first automatic model, affordable and with a tasteful aesthetic.

This unavoidable piece, a must for your wrist, is from now on in the brand’s playground. Tissot had fun and created several versions and multiple dial variations. The 42 mm PRX Automatic Chronograph displays for instance its originality with a “panda” dial.

White and slightly brushed, the dial houses three navy blue counters rimed with a minute track in the same colour, hands and index are covered with a luminescent matter. Rated to 100 meters of water resistance, this vintage styled edition houses an automatic calibre which offers a 60-hour power reserve, legible through a crystal case back and equipped with a cut out oscillating weight. This piece shares an interchangeable bracelet system with the 40 mm PRX Powermatic 80 adorned with a little tapisserie motif on a green dial. In steel, the model is powered by the Powermatic 80 calibre equipped with a non-magnetic spiral Nivachron™.

Tissot PRX 35 mm.

A new iteration in 35 mm appears this time with a quartz movement equipped with the EOL function – End-Of-Life – which indicates the batterie’s end of life. Perfect to be worn at the beach this summer, it features an ultra-bright green dial, equipped with a date aperture at 3 o’clock and luminescent index.
