Good As Gold
The new Gentleman collection is worth its weight in gold, literally. Already packing exceptional value with a Powermatic 80 calibre with balance spring, the watch adds precious metal to its proposition in the form of a solid pink gold bezel. Handsome dial features like the central crosshair, faceted hour markers and hands, and subtle sparkle (only on the cream opaline option) complete the look.
The tactile T-Touch celebrates its 20th anniversary by going Swiss. Alluding to life on the Jura and Alpine mountains, the watch evokes climbing equipment with various electronic applications and a rugged titanium case with chocolate ceramic bezel. Its upper dial, containing the solar cells, is also printed with edelweiss and vertical bands – motifs from the traditional costumes of armailli shepherds living on the mountainous pastures. Another cultural emblem is the Swiss Confederation coat-of-arms engraved on the case back.
The Heritage 1973 is a throwback to the Tissot Navigator, a key timepiece that established the brand’s ties to motor-racing during the era. Limited to 1,973 pieces and powered by the reliable ETA Valjoux 7753 movement, the watch contains all the hallmarks of a seventies-style racing chronograph – cushion case, bright orange accents, panda dial, and leather strap with large circular perforations.
Like the rest of the Official MotoGP collection, the T-Race MotoGP Automatic 2019 Limited Edition (3,333 pieces) is specially designed to resemble a badass motorbike. It incorporates a brake disc design for its bezel, has pushers as foot pegs, floating lugs that look like rearsets, and a carbon fibre case band. Sporting elegance with a mix of rose gold and black PVD, it is fitted with a rubber strap featuring faux crocodile leather insert that provides one final touch of luxury to the watch.
In The Deep
After turning heads last year with its deep blue dégradé dial, the Seastar 1000 is back to thrill in chronograph form. Powered by a quartz movement, the watch remains suavely seaworthy with 300m water resistance, a 60-minute scale on the bezel, and brightly lumed hands. With new case executions in rose gold and bronze PVD, the standout feature of the watch is nevertheless the blue gradient dial that reflects the ocean’s beauty.
