Introducing the Petite Powerhouse: The Tissot PRX Powermatic 80 in 35mm
Tick-tock goes the clock, but if you’re into wristwatches, you know it’s all about tick-tock with a side of style. And speaking of style, Tissot has heard the plea of slender wrists around the world, going full “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” on their beloved PRX model. Meet the new, trimmer Tissot PRX – because good things come in small packages and even better things come well-crafted.
Gone are the days when sporting a big chunky watch was the trend du jour. Enter the era of understated elegance. The refined PRX now boasts a more modest case size, shrinking down from a broad-shouldered 40mm to a svelte 35mm. That’s right, size ain’t everything! This change might just make your wrist the talk of the town, sitting pretty while offering equal parts comfort and panache.
But don’t mistake this trim for a slim-down on substance. Tissot ensures the new PRX packs all the horological muscle of its bulkier predecessor. It comes with the same robust Swiss quartz movement, a date window at 3 o’clock – because being fashionably late is so passé – and the wrist-candy status of its integrated bracelet.
Optics matter, and the dial on these demure darlings has been given the artful treatment. With a range of finishes, including the ever-popular sunburst, your wrist will shimmer and shine like it’s the star of the show – because, let’s be honest, it is. The PRX also maintains a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal that keeps your timepiece looking sharp through life’s rough-and-tumble.
And let’s wax lyrical about the bracelet, shall we? The joyful juxtaposition of polished and satined surfaces gives it a sophistication that begs to be paired with everything from your distressed denim to your power suits. After all, a versatile watch is a wardrobe’s best friend.
With a water resistance of up to 100 meters, this watch isn’t just a fair-weather friend. Whether you’re caught in a downpour or taking a spontaneous plunge, the PRX is here to stay on your wrist, ticking along reliably. It’s a small but mighty testament to Tissot’s commitment to making watches that aren’t just fashion statements but life companions.
