tissot t my lady

With its new watch designed for the ladies and available in several versions, the watchmaker from Le Locle continues to do what it does best: to propose a rich array of exquisite pieces at a very fair price.

Contrary to popular belief, of the exclusive image the watchmaking world emits, gifting oneself (or gifting others) with a beautiful, reliable, precise automatic watch, without having to take out a loan for several decades, is perfectly possible. Tissot epitomizes this segment which blends quality, performance and sweet pricetags, and proves it once again with its T-My Lady, a watch equipped with the Powermatic 48 caliber (2 days of power reserve). Another of the Le Locle brand’s strong points: the wealth of its catalogue which, for each model systematically proposes several variations so that everyone can find their heart’s desire by popping into one of its points of sale.

tissot t my lady closeupAnd, this is exactly the case for the T-My Lady available with 5 dial versions: blue or sunray-brushed anthracite, silvered, ecru-opaline or dark mother-of-pearl. Each of these faces hosts an hour chapter featuring rose gold faceted applique indexes, occasionally interspersed with diamonds, depending on the reference chosen. In the center, two dauphine-style hands display the hours and minutes whilst the seconds are ticked over by a direct-drive and all three hands are also golden. As for the date, it is inscribed in black on a white backdrop in a chamfered aperture at 3 o’clock.

The steel case measures 29 mm in diameter and can handle immersions to depths of 100 meters. It is topped by a rose gold bezel which is strewn with 60 brilliant-cut diamonds (0.39 carats) for the silvered-dial version.
