A new Powermatic 80 model
Tissot’s Le Locle collection was originally launched in 2003 as a way of marking the brand’s 150th anniversary. The watches feature traditionally-made cases and dials, reflecting the aesthetics of the clock face found on the church in Le Locle – the small city in Switzerland where Tissot was originally founded.
This lastest model, a Tissot Le Locle Powermatic 80, measures 39.3mm, with a thickness just under 10mm. Its dial bears the Clou de Paris pattern, and it has a satin-finished hour circle. Choose this circle with either eight diamond indicators and Roman numerals, or all of its indicators in diamond.
The watch is fitted with a Powermatic calibre, with a power reserve of 80 hours. It has a steel case, with a bezel and crown in rose gold PVD, plus a matching bracelet. There’s a special engraved back, rose golden leaf hands, and water resistance up to 30m.
Expect to pay around AED3,200 for the version with eight diamond indicators, and AED3,450 with 12. Tissot stores can be found in most major shopping malls throughout the Middle East.
