Tissot is well known for their watchmaking expertise and high precision mechanical watches, which has earned them many prices in international timing competitions.
As a first with the new Ballade collection, Tissot is introducing a silicon balance spring for the beating heart of the already impressive Powermatic 80 movement. The new silicon spring increases the precision and the new collection is all Chronometer certified. By using watchmaking technology usually only find in high-end watches, Tissot makes luxury affordable with the new Tissot Ballade watches.
The design of the Ballade collection is very elegant and has a timeless feel to it, that will only increase through the years. The smart silhouette of the timepiece and the polished finishes, leaving a satiny effect, make it the perfect watch to go from day to night, completely effortlessly. Thoughtful details, including the Clous de Paris on the bezel, which perfectly lines up with the efficient movement, and a clear, readable dial, make this watch a pleasure to wear. It’s time to have it all!
The collection will come in both men’s and ladies sizes with a number of color combinations. Bicolour yellow-gold and rose-gold executions are PVD coatings.
The men’s watch has a classic 41 mm case width, where the women’s watches are a nice 32 mm. The case is just like most other Tissot automatic watches, made in 316L stainless steel with a see-through caseback.
