Stepping Into Retro Futurism: The Tissot PRX Powermatic 35mm
Flashback to the 1970s! Disco, flared pants, and now… the groovy Tissot PRX Powermatic 35mm, baby! Let’s get on the funky train as Tissot takes us through time with this snazzy piece, whispering in our ears, “Can you dig it?”.
Tissot just rocked our world by unveiling a new gem to the PRX line. Picture this: you’ve seen the 35mm PRX models – elegant, slim, but alas, only available in quartz. Well, let the bells toll because the 35mm now dances to the beat of the Powermatic 80 automatic movement!
It’s like Tissot took the premium goodness of the Powermatic 40mm, and shrank it into a more versatile, and dare we say, unisex 35mm case size. These funky timepieces are permanently strutting down the PRX collection runway, with dial colors that would make even a peacock envious: blue, black, green, and a mystical white mother of pearl.
Shimmy down to the specs, these watches sport the signature ‘70s case design, integrated bracelet, fantastic clasp system, signature waffle dial (which is like having waffles, but for your wrist), three o’clock date window, and the Powermatic 80 movement with 80 glorious hours of power reserve. Can you imagine dancing for 80 hours straight? Neither can we, but this watch sure can! It even flaunts its movement through an exhibition caseback. Oh, and it doesn’t mind a splash, being water-resistant up to 100mm.

In a world where wristwatches tend to either shout or whisper, the Tissot PRX Powermatic 35mm effortlessly sings. If I had to summarize this watch in two words, it would be “Absolutely Fabulous”.
