The range, launched in 2003 for the brand’s 150th anniversary, and flaunting the name where everything began, nurtures this historic link. These new variations enhance it even more.


In just two decades, the Le Locle collection has established itself as a can’t-do-without flagship of Tissot imagined creations with references boasting traditional yet elegant features. To celebrate this special event, the Swiss brand unveiled its Le Locle Powermatic 80 20th Anniversary model. This piece stands out with its delightfully horological blue touches. As such, this azure color dresses the Roman numerals making up the hour chapter, the two leaf-shaped hands, the direct drive and the logos. In the center of the dial and around the edge, a delicate guilloché-engraved Clous de Paris pattern emphasizes the watch’s classical personality. A date placed at 3 o’clock completes the time data. This harmonious scenography reigns in a 39.3 mm-diameter steel case. This edition is worn on a metal bracelet that matches perfectly with the ensemble. Thanks to the push-button release system, the wearer can opt for the alternative leather strap.

The data is driven by the high-performing Powermatic 80 caliber. This selfwinding movement delivers 80 hours of power reserve. Its oscillating weight can be admired through the sapphire-crystal caseback, which is adorned with decorations and technical specification wording. Worth mentioning, Tissot also showcases a more feminine 29 mm-diameter version equipped with a Powermatic 48 caliber. This model is set apart moreover with its redesigned hour chapter center staging eight discreet diamonds.
