Le Locle is steeped in tradition and heritage, being the home of Tissot since 1853, nestled in the majestic Jura Mountains of Switzerland. It is also the name of an enormously popular collection of watches by the famous Swiss watchmaker. The Tissot Le Locle Automatic watch for ladies is Le Locle personified - classic, esteemed and traditional, yet quintessentially contemporary and superbly crafted.
This peerless timepiece offers a polished 39.3mm stainless steel case with a visually arresting rose or yellow gold PVD coating, as well as a leather strap with butterfly clasp. The round dial in shimmering mother-of-pearl is especially beautiful, appearing almost translucent in the light. The dial has elegantly (and appropriately) thin Roman numerals at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. A range of five models are available, with different case, dial and strap colours. Most fetchingly, some of the models in this range feature Top Wesselton diamonds on the indices for further luxe and glamorous sparkle.
There is meticulous attention to detail, precision timekeeping and expert craftsmanship in Tissot’s Le Locle Automatic Lady. The ETA 2824-2 automatic movement can be glimpsed through the stunning semi-skeleton caseback which has a sapphire glass display window. The caseback has elaborate decorative framing, which includes the date ‘1853’ etched in the centre, a salute to the year of Tissot’s founding, some 163 years ago, as well as ‘Mecanique Automatique’ etched at the caseback’s bottom.
What is so special about this collection of ladies’ watches is how it exudes a timeless, understated elegance. The design is surprisingly versatile, owing to its classic design paired with a large dial. It is a watch that exudes luxury, glamour and style, whether the ensemble be for day or night. This is a watch that is as perfect worn by a fashionable lady sitting to a leisurely lunch (superbly attired and coiffed, of course) as it is worn at a glittering social event in the evening. The Tissot Le Locle Lady - for the woman who appreciates the understated timepiece that makes a statement - elegantly and flawlessly.
