An automatic watch runs on the energy of the wearer. In fact, it is the movements of the wrist that enable the mechanism to function. The Powermatic 80 offers a power reserve of 80 hours, enough to continue to tell the time accurately even after 3 days in which the watch is not worn. Thus, a movement that is proposed as innovative and high-performance compared to the competition, which usually offers a power reserve of one and a half days.
The properties that a sapphire crystal gives a watch are extreme shock resistance and good legibility of the dial and hands due to its transparency. Because it is the hardest material after diamond, sapphire crystal is used in the haute horology industry mainly for its scratch-resistant properties. Sapphire crystal can take various shapes, thus giving the watch a different design each time, such as flat, domed, concave or ground.
All Tissot watch cases are subjected to numerous checks, including water resistance. Tissot tests the watch’s ability to withstand shocks, pressure, but also the penetration of liquids, gases and dust, reproducing the actual conditions in which the watch might find itself.
