The perfect everyday watch for the modern gentleman must transition seamlessly between different settings, from closing deals in the boardroom to lounging in a cafe. The name of the game here is versatility – such a timepiece must suit every occasion whether its wearer is dressing up or down. The new Tissot Gentleman Powermatic 80 Silicium watch is the latest from the brand to address such a need, and comes equipped with all the features needed to thrive in any environment it is in.
The new Tissot Gentleman is available in six different references, and traces its design codes to a reference from the 1960s that’s currently part of the brand’s rich archive. Despite its origins from half a century ago, the timepiece sports a timeless design that remains relevant for the contemporary wearer. Note the simple three-hand design with a discreet date window at three o’clock, as well as the classy applied hour indices that are complemented by a simple chapter ring. The watch’s sizing is itself an exercise in restraint and adaptability – the refreshed Tissot Gentleman measures 40 millimetres across to suit modern tastes, yet clocks in at just 10.64 millimetres high to allow it to slip under a cuff effortlessly.
The choice of steel for these watches further enhance their versatility – it is neither too sporty nor overtly dressy, and can thus seamlessly match any outfit. The icing on the cake is the availability of three classic colourways: black, silver, and blue. These variants are, in turn, each available with either a steel bracelet or a smooth calfskin strap.
AN Updated Movement
No everyday watch is complete without a suitable calibre, and Tissot has fitted the new Gentleman with the Powermatic 80 movement. With its 80-hour power reserve, the watch is more than capable of lasting the weekend: you can set it down on Friday evening and wear it on Monday morning without needing to wind it or make any adjustments. What’s more, the Powermatic 80 calibre is equipped with an antimagnetic silicon hairspring, which further enhances its robustness.
With a versatile design backed by an eminently useful movement, the new Tissot Gentleman makes for a compelling choice for everyday wear.
