Description

We wanted to get back to the roots and integrate the original identity of the Tissot Ballade from the 1990’s. Besides being THE classic watch with a timeless and contemporary design, The Tissot Ballade Automatic offers the highest precision ever thanks to silicon technology.

To add a touch of fine watchmaking, the Tissot Ballade integrates a fluted bezel and a guilloche dial in the centre with roman numerals and indices. This watch features the Powermatic 80 movement, equipped with a patented silicon balance spring that makes the Tissot Ballade the most accurate mechanical watch in the Tissot collection. A very precise movement not affected by day-to-day magnetic fields.

Yet again, Tissot revolutionises the watch industry in its price segment, using a technology only seen in high-end watches. It stays true to its motto of providing luxury at affordable price with the Tissot Ballade.

Powermatic 80

Powermatic 80

An automatic watch is powered by the energy of the person who wears it. Wrist movement enables the mechanism to run. The Powermatic 80 movement boasts 80 hours of power reserve, which is enough to continue telling time accurately even if the watch is not worn for three days. It is an innovative movement that outperforms the competition, whose movements general provide 1.5 days of power reserve.
Silicium

Silicium

When electronic objects emerged in the 1930s, Tissot began harnessing its expertise to help its customers prevent interference between their watch movements and the magnetic fields generated by electronics. Nevertheless, magnetic fields continued to be a preoccupation for watchmakers. With the arrival of silicon as a new material to make components in the mechanism that controls a movement, Tissot can offer far greater resistance to the magnetic fields produced by everyday objects such as mobile phones, televisions, computers, hairdryers, radios or the magnetic closures on handbags. Thus, Tissot watches became even more accurate than before.
Sapphire

Sapphire

A sapphire crystal gives a watch the following properties: extremely high resistance to impact and superior screen and hand readability thanks to its transparency. Because it is the strongest material after diamonds, it is used in fine timepieces for its anti-scratch prowess. Sapphire crystals can take many forms and give the watch a variety of looks: flat, domed, concave or ground.
Water resistance

Water resistance

All Tissot watch cases undergo several tests, including a water resistance check. Tissot tests the watch's ability to resist impacts and pressure, as well as the penetration of liquids, gas and dust by replicating the real-life conditions in which the watch may find itself.
