Tissot is a watch brand that is widely appreciated around the world. And this wristwatch, which I will present to you today, is no exception.
The Ballade model is a variation of Powermatic 80, which offers a certified chronometer movement. The Powermatic 80 series are extremely suitable for wearing, you can find them at reasonable prices and they also have beautiful movements of the work body.
Ballade has long focused on the long history of the company in the creation of anti-magnetic watches. Something that stretches all the way back to the 1930’s, when manufacturers began using non-magnetic materials in their movements.
These new models are really one step ahead of the other Powermatic 80 models. They all have a stainless steel housing (some with PVD coatings of gold) and vary in size (30.6 mm for the female model and 39 mm for the male model).
The standard Powermatic 80 automatic motion features an 80-hour power reserve. Tissot equips it with silicon to become more resistant to magnetism. Such a silicone is mostly used on luxury watches, and it gives the watch more exclusivity.
