NEW: Tissot PRX Chronograph Watches
Monday - 11 April 2022
Fitted with an integrated bracelet and imbued with a steel sports design language reminiscent of the 1970s, Tissot debuts the PRX watch in a sporty chronograph complication, available in a silver or deep blue dial colour
The Tissot PRX watch collection has not been around all that long, but in a short space of time has managed to take the sports watch community by storm with its unmissable 70-inspired steel sports watch aesthetic and its robust integrated bracelet. Now, new for 2022, Tissot expands its PRX watch range with its first complication – the chronograph. There are two colourways to accompany this new sporty chronograph – a silver brushed dial and a deep blue brushed dial. The silver model features a panda effect, with black-filled chronograph counters placed at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock and indulgent rose gold coloured dial accents. The deep blue dial features white-filled counters and silvered elements. Both models feature a reference to the PRX name inside the 6 o’clock sub-counter and both are powered by the Valjoux A05 H31 chronograph movement, which sits inside a robust 42mm stainless steel case.
With plenty of retro appeal to offer, the new Tissot PRX Chronograph watches are certainly getting some attention right now, but fans will have to wait until June to be able to own one for themselves. New for the PRX Chronograph is its case size, and the addition of the chronograph complication seems to come as a natural progression to the series. Yet, with only two models released so far, it keeps Tissot fans intrigued as to what exciting new chronograph models could potentially be released in the future. Whether you’re drawn to the silver panda dial with black-filled chronograph counters or the deep blue version with white-filled sub-scales – both of the new Tissot PRX Chronograph watches offer a high contrast two-tone display that will pair well with both relaxed and smart attire.
The 42mm stainless steel cases of both watches boast a mix of satin finishes and polished surfaces, whilst the square-shaped push-buttons at 2 and 4 o’clock closely imitate a 70s-inspired design code with their case hugging profiles. The bezels of the new Tissot PRX Chronograph watches are polished, sealing to a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass front with anti-reflective properties. The same sapphire crystal glass material is also used on the back of the case, granting an unhindered view of the automatic chronograph movement whilst at work. Both models are also 100-meter water-resistant and feature the ergonomically designed integrated stainless steel bracelet, with links finished in a satin-finished effect.
The Valjoux-based ETA A05.H31 that powers the two new Tissot PRX Chronograph watches is automatic winding and provides a power autonomy of 60 hours once fully wound. The rotor is skeletonised and engraved with the Tissot logo for admiring through the watch’s sapphire-backed case. Its functions include central hours, minutes, chronograph seconds, chronograph 30-minute, chronograph 12-hour, and small second functions, along with a date window at 4:30.
The new Tissot PRX Chronograph watches are clean and retro with a streamlined profile that will certainly appeal to the masses of vintage sports watch lovers out there. Its surprisingly intricate finishes, like the satin-finished surface of the case and the polished T-engraved crown at 3 o’clock, are all hallmarks of the Swiss brand’s expert watchmaking prowess. In addition to this, the design’s sharply-brushed planes are broken up by brightly polished case sides that compliment the watch’s gently sloping polished bezel.
All in all – these two new classic yet versatile steel sports watches from the new Tissot PRX Chronograph range are perfect for wearing on the wrist every day of the week.
