Best Tissot Watches for Different Personalities
by Chanel Lim
Highly competitive in nature, Tissot is driven by its constant need to stay at the top of its game. Priding itself on its innovative and precise timekeeping technology, Tissot is the official timekeeper of professional sports events, including the NBA.
Founded in 1853 by Charles-Félicien Tissot and his son, Charles-Émile, Tissot has since invented several watches and mechanisms that have shaped the watch industry today.
With more than a century-long history in watchmaking, Tissot’s 21st-century men’s watch collections are all at their best forms. Finally, Tissot watches have a wide range of designs and collections for every style, personality, and price range.
Here are six of them.
The T-Classic Tradition watch is anything but conventional. With Tissot watches’ signature repetitive guilloche dial and a mildly curved case, The Tissot T-Classic promises a vintage experience with extraordinary precision.
The elegant dress watch features a scratch-resistant dome-shaped sapphire crystal and improved Swiss quartz running on battery type Renata 371. This timepiece is the perfect example of how Tissot watches marry modern designs and traditional watchmaking craftsmanship.
Finished with an embossed black cow leather strap, this watch is perfect for men who are both forward-looking and appreciative of the beauty of history.
Flaunting a bold stainless steel case and black and red silicone strap, the Tissot T Race Chronograph is a striking timepiece.
In addition to its sleek black case and ion-plated bezel, it has luminescent hands and indexes and a ton of functions. Unlike Tissot watches, not many timepieces offer so many functions at this affordable retail price. To list some, it has a tachymeter around its outer rim, a chronograph with three sub-dials displaying 60 second, 30 minute, and 1/10th of a second function, and even an upgraded Quartz movement that is highly reliable and efficient.
For water sports enthusiasts, you would be glad to know that it also has a water resistance of up to 100 metres.
Following a growing trend of owning valuable gold watches, many are beginning to take interest in Tissot’s T-Gold Gentleman Automatic watch. And we can totally understand why.
With a stainless steel case and a weathered-looking brown strap, this watch offers a nostalgic touch with its vintage finishes. Of course, what attracts collectors most is its 18K rose-gold bezel and rose-gold hands, which exude versatility and novelty.
One of the most gorgeous-looking Tissot watches, the Tissot Gold’s functions are also not to be underestimated. With an automatic movement and a generous power reserve of 80 hours, this timepiece is a true gentleman’s watch. Its scratch-resistant crystal caseback and water resistance of 50 meters further prove this point.
A date display is visible at 3 o’clock against the elegant brown dial.
Styled in a bright orange silicone strap and titanium case, this Tissot Touch is a vibrant piece that adds character to a casual outfit.
With a fully functioning analog-digital dial, this is one of few Tissot watches that include a digital sub-dial and perpetual calendar. It runs with an ETA Calibre E84.301 quartz movement and acts as an alarm, thermometer, compass, and even an altitude indicator! To top it all off, it has a touch screen function that makes this watch a highly modern piece that many tech lovers would enjoy.
To those who are seeking to spice their wardrobe up by a notch, this vibrant timepiece is a perfect choice.
The Tissot Heritage Automatic timepiece is emblematic of the brand’s long history and modern specialties. The watch’s distinctive brown leather strap and stainless steel case are a no-fail combo for an elegant watch.
The silver dial features blue hands and 24-hour scale markers that are almost camouflaged with the dial. Working on an automatic movement, the watch offers a 46-hour power reserve. With a large case diameter of 43mm, it is a piece that demands attention. At the same time, its subtle dial colours balance the look, making it appear less extravagant.
Like many Tissot watches, this stylish timepiece is perfect for men who are down-to-earth and want to go for a casual and refined look.
As the first brand to come up with the concept of pocket watches, Tissot’s T-Pocket watches will surely not disappoint.
The T-Pocket Savonnette features an exquisite gold-plated brass case and screams royalty from every angle. Its reflective white dial and black Roman numerals contrast the gold-toned case, giving it a clean and polished look.
This pocket watch has a date display at the 6 o’clock position. Its quartz movement guarantees its quality timekeeping functions. And like every other watch in the collection, it is coated with scratch-resistant mineral crystal and features a solid caseback. With its large 48mm diameter, this watch shows off its presence even more fearlessly.
The T-Pocket Savennette is perfect for those who do not like wearing watches on their wrists. This is definitely one great addition to your Tissot watch collection.
