There are couples that thrive on being distinct from each other, and there are couples that thrive on sharing. ‘His’ and ‘hers’ is not for everyone, as for some that amounts to a type of co-opted identity, or it simply isn’t for them. But for some couples, ‘his’ and ‘hers’ is an affirmation of their love and their union, whatever form that union may take. They want the matching robes and the identical scarves and the designer ensembles that are two sides of the same coin. And the world be damned!
Watches are no different. There are couples that love the idea of having matching watches from the same watchmaker and collection. It could be for their wedding, to celebrate an anniversary or just on a delicious whim. All in the name of love. And luxury watchmakers have fulfilled that niche by offering select matching men’s and ladies’ watches.
Tissot is one such Swiss watchmaker. Renowned for its innovative craftsmanship and superlative designs, this historic watch brand has an enviable array of paired watches for men and women. And each pair is distinct and speaks to different people, as with any watch.
To which couples do Tissot’s paired watches speak? Here are five of these matching sets as offered (and available here at Anytime Watches) by this Swiss brand:
The Tissot Chemin Des Tourelles watch for men and women as shown here is a vision in silver. This watch is the epitome of classic and class. Its legacy is that it’s named after the the street in Le Locle, Switzerland, where the Tissot factory was established in 1907, and where it is still located to this day.
The watch case is made of stainless steel and equipped with a sapphire glass. This collection is hugely versatile in the number of style options for both men and women in dial designs, colour accents on the dial and bezel and strap or bracelet offerings. In addition, the watch comes with a automatic ETA Powermatic 80 movement and is water resistant to 5 bar.
This pair are perfect for the couple who appreciate the legacy of its name and the classic lines of its design. They are a worldly couple, quietly sophisticated and comfortable in their taste and the watch that they wear. There is no ostentation here - just class and taste.
The Tissot PR 100 is a timepiece that fits into one’s daily routine as easily as the most comfortable pair of shoes. A most elegant pair of shoes, mind you! These watches for men and women are as understated as they are perfect for any occasion, at any time of the day.
The Tissot PR100 sports a stainless steel case, as well as a stainless steel bracelet, quartz movement and sapphire glass. In addition, it is water resistant to 10 ATM. The entire look is functional and practical, yet never dull or pedestrian in design or craftsmanship.
This pair of watches is an exact fit for the couple that word hard, strive hard and don’t wish to show off about it. They enjoy the good things in life and appreciate each other for that, which is why they are drawn to these matching watches from Tissot. Simplicity can be captivating.
The Tissot Bridgeport is a watch for men and women that is timeless in design yet with a sense of playful ‘otherness’ about it. The dial design and tapered Roman numerals are elegant, whilst the models pictured here have the bezel and hour, minute and second hands all in rose (pink) gold, which is delightfully eye-catching.
The watch has the usual Tissot credentials and superlative crafting, with a case made of stainless steel and equipped with sapphire glass. In addition, the watch comes with a automatic movement and is water resistant to 5 ATM. The styling is Tissot to the core - clean and smart.
The Tissot Bridgeport is for the couple who can appreciate that the dial has 1853 prominently displayed (the year in which Tissot was founded) yet love the quirky rose gold accents. This is a couple who are comfortable with each other and for whom irreverence is a shared pleasure.
The Tissot Le Locle was released in 2013 to celebrate the 160th anniversary of Tissot’s founding. It is appropriately named after the hometown of this legendary and highly respected Swiss watchmaker. The Le Locle is crisp and clean, with superb design features.
This watch is an ode to stainless steel and the colour silver, pictured here as beautifully complemented by a dramatically white dial. It offers an automatic movement with a sapphire crystal glass, and a water resistance to 3 bar. A skeleton caseback gives the watch a dramatic edge.
The Le Locle will appeal to the couple that are trendy in a way that is discreet and understated. Theirs is an uncluttered lifestyle and design aesthetic. Subtlety is what they appreciate. They may even appreciate the minimalist, but with a sense of flair - as with this stunning watch.
The word ‘luxury’ can veer into the cluttered, the fussy and the overdone. This supremely discerning watch is the opposite - it is uncluttered, unfussy, unexpected. The Tissot Luxury exudes confidence, and will be owned by a couple with confidence to match.
The watch case here is of stainless steel and equipped with a sapphire glass. It comes with a automatic ETA Powermatic 80 movement and is water resistant to 5 bar. A skeleton caseback gives the Tissot Luxury a dramatic twist, unexpected in a watch with such an effortless design.
The couple who opt for these Tissot watches have nothing to declare because they are as assured about their choice and taste in a watch as they are about each other. Serenity and contentment are what this couple are about, with refined watches to match.
