With a new collection and many different versions, Tissot has released multipurpose timepieces that can be worn on all wrists, no matter what your style.

While fashion dictates that watches should come in smaller sizes, Tissot has gone in the other direction. Today, a watch has become a vital accessory in the male wardrobe and is meant to be seen. So, you might as well think big! This is what the brand from Le Locle has on offer with its Chrono XL, a watch that stands out through its impressive 45mm-wide steel case. And to give them the cases even more character, they are coated in grey or black PVD and combined with simple or brightly coloured dials. Four large figures at the cardinal points and a railroad track make up the time markings. With their luminous coating, they provide optimum readability even in dim light.

All the models in the collection are driven by Swiss-made quartz chronograph movements. The calibres provide short-time measurements with a traditional display via a central second hand plus minute and hour sub-dials. They also measure “add” and “split” times. A running second and date counter at 4 o’clock round off the traditional design.

The watches come with leather straps available in a wide range of colours and finishes. They all feature a standard buckle, making them comfortable and easy to wear. So, whether you’re a fan of vintage or contemporary design, you’re sure to find the Chrono XL for you!
