WHEN SIMPLICITY IS RIGHT
A chic and simple design is the main feature of the Everytime Swissmatic. A new calibre has joined the collection, beating all the competition hands down
Buying a mechanical watch is not within everyone’s reach And yet the brand from Le Locle has taken up the challenge with its Tissot Everytime Swissmatic. Part of the entry-level Everytime collection released last year, this new model marks another step towards wider accessibility for finely crafted mechanical watches with a price outdoing all the close competitors. Tissot has hit the spot.
Inside the 40mm-wide, 12mm-thick case, the Tissot Everytime Swissmatic houses a brand-new calibre, the Swissmatic, a Swiss-made automatic movement (ETA), providing almost 75 hours (three days) of power reserve. Tissot is rightly proud of this new movement, based on the remarkable Sistem51 by Swatch. It drives the hour, minute and central second functions with silvered hands providing a strong contrast with the black dial, plus the date in a window at 3 o’clock. The dance of the mechanism can be admired through the transparent caseback.
With its simple design, and chic and harmonious silhouette, the Tissot Everytime Swissmatic is suited to all occasions. The case is made of 316 L stainless steel, with a sapphire crystal that is tried and tested against scratching. This new timepiece is also available in rose gold with a PVD coating and is sold with a black leather strap featuring a jewelled clasp, tone-on-tone overstitching and crocodile embossing. But you can also get a stainless-steel strap or a synthetic fabric strap with a standard buckle. Tissot focuses on the simplicity of the design, it’s true, but with an elegant and timeless look.
