The automatic Tissot T-Tempo (ref. T060.407.11.051.00) is a nice choice for those making their first step into the fascinating world of luxury mechanical timekeepers. While not looking terribly ‘fancy’, not offering you any ‘impressive’ complications and not designed for those wishing to make ‘a statement’, the T-Tempo is a nice crossover between casual and dress timekeepers that also happens to be powered by a mechanism capable of keeping good time, while being robust enough to be abused by a person who is yet to realize that a mechanical watch is like a tiny car: however inexpensive it is, it still needs to be properly serviced at certain intervals.
Just like the «ordinary» T-Navigator (ref. T062.430.11.057.00), the 2011 Tissot T-Navigator Automatic Chronograph (ref. T062.427.11.057.00) might have become a gorgeous “aviator” if not that hideous PVD-treated bezel with its “compass” scale that is as crude as it is completely unnecessary both functionally and aesthetically.
Tissot has just updated its famous T-Touch series of timekeepers equipped with tactile crystals. The new Racing-Touch ana-digi chronograph offers you a whole load of functions packed into a neatly designed 43-millimeter stainless steel body.
The new Tissot Tradition G15.561 collection that was officially presented last week in Basel, Switzerland offers an elegant appearance and its retrograde perpetual calendar functionality courtesy of the new ETA G15.561 quartz caliber comes at a more than affordable price.
Tissot ones again updates its family of diving companions with a new Seastar 1000 automatic chronograph. Although some find the choice of a cheaper chronograph caliber that animates the piece not particularly inspiring (after all, what’s the longevity of movement is usually the main reason behind buying a mechanical watch,) the gadget still deserves at least some attention thanks to its powerful exterior and relatively low price.
