At its 160th anniversary back in 2013, Tissot burst onto the scene with the Powermatic 80. An automatic watch with 80 hours of power reserve got everyone salivating at the thought. Four years later, the Powermatic 80 movement has been revitalised through the Ballade Automatic range. 

Imagine the balance spring, oscillating for several hundred million times a year. The iron alloy has long been the material of choice for its durability because of this but even that succumbs to the daily wear, temperature changes and most pertinently the magnetism factor. Enter silicon. It doesn’t oxidise, it’s non-magnetic, it’s durable and is resistant to temperature changes. That’s all you need to bring home this gorgeous piece of engineering.

Available at all Tissot boutiques.
