Tissot PRX Chronograph Automatic Men's Watches
You should be able to buy the latest and greatest Tissot PRX by the time you finish reading this article; it's the most luxurious PRX model to date. Fans of fine timepieces can expect great things from this PRX because of the excellent design, innovative functions, and reasonable price that Tissot has built into it. Both the black, gold, and silver-tone (T137.427.11.011.00) and the blue, silver, and white dial (T137.427.11.041.00) are here today. Given the success of these timepieces, I anticipate the release of additional colorways.
The PRX collection's affordable pricing (quartz versions start at under $400) and contemporary design have proven to be hugely successful for Tissot. When researching this, I discovered that the Tissot Seastar was the inspiration for the timepiece's signature case and bracelet design (both of which date back to the late 1970s). Seastar lives on at Tissot, but now it's a diver's watch. The angular bracelet-integrated watch with the endearingly retro sports watch vibe could be better known as "PRX" today. The smallest case width for the Tissot PRX is 35mm, and the diameter of the case for the standard men's three-hand model is 40mm (which comes in both quartz and automatic versions). The excellent and handsome ETA Valjoux A05.H31 mechanical movement inside this PRX Automatic Chronograph model necessitates a larger case size. A 42mm diameter, 14.5mm thickness, and 41.5mm lug-to-lug measurement define the case.
The movement is a member of the famous Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph family, though it is newer and more closely resembles the Valjoux 7753 in terms of orientation and design. With a power reserve of 60 hours and a frequency of 4Hz, the A05.H31 displays the time, a chronograph that can record 12 hours of time, and the date. It has a sapphire crystal caseback, so you can see the movement, which is, I think you'll agree, very elaborately decorated considering the cost of the watch. Just look at all those shiny, perlage-finished surfaces and the impressive show put on for well under $2,000 US. The only thing that bothers me about the mechanism is that setting the date still necessitates pressing a side-mounted, inset pusher, just like the 7753. In light of the fact that the 7750 doesn't have this problem, it annoys me a little. But the inset pusher isn't a big deal.

The watch's steel case and bracelet have been polished to a high shine, which is impressive given the watch's affordable price tag. This is standard across the board for the Tissot PRX collection. Here, the case's larger proportions are complemented by a polished bezel's steep angle, a brushed finish over most of the case's expanse, and polished corners and accents. The large, square chronograph pushers are not only easy to find and operate, but also give the watch a decidedly masculine air when worn on the wrist. Although the PRX Automatic Chronograph looks like a stylish accessory, it functions more like a practical timepiece. The metal content makes the case heavy, but when paired with a properly sized bracelet, it is quite wearable.
You may have also noticed that the bracelet is mounted on quick-release spring bars, making it possible to remove the bracelet from your PRX watch without the need for any additional tools. Tissot now offers the PRX on a variety of bracelet materials besides metal, including leather. Although Tissot hasn't yet made leather or rubber straps available for the PRX Automatic Chronograph, I wouldn't be surprised if they did so in the future. When paired with a suitably unique rubber strap, these watches provide a whole new range of options for both casual and formal wear, as well as a visual sporty-coolness that could become a trademark of future Tissot PRX Automatic Chronograph models.
Both the blue and silver version and the "gilt panda" white dial version aim for a timeless aesthetic with their debut collections. They're both nice-looking, but you can see that Tissot has a lot of creative leeway when it comes to the kind of aesthetic that would work with this dial's many possible configurations. The dial is a hybrid between a vintage 1960s chronograph aesthetic and a contemporary design incorporating applied dial elements, textured dials, and polished hands. Not polished, maybe even painted hands would have been my preference. Given the watches' relatively high price tags (for Tissot), it makes sense that the company would want to give them a flashy appearance; thus, the polished hands make sense.
The dial is easy to read, but the Super-LumiNova on the hands and hour markers is sparse. The case is water-resistant to a respectable 100 metres, and it features a flat AR-coated sapphire crystal that protects the dial. The Tissot PRX Automatic Chronograph speaks for itself, so there's no need to spin elaborate tales in order to make your case. The attractive price point, timeless design, and upscale aesthetic practically sell themselves. As a proud member of a Tissot that is once again finding its stride, I am ecstatic to report that I can now purchase a fantastic Tissot timepiece for well under $500 or well over $1,500. The MSRP for these two Tissot PRX Automatic Chronograph watches is $1,750 USD.
