Tissot is known for its mission statement "gold value at silver price". Its collection of beautiful gold watches, however, is proof that the brand stands by this and that it is not just a saying. These timepieces will be sure to add class and sophistication to any connoisseur's collection.
The carat is a unit of purity for gold alloys (24-carat gold = 100 % pure gold ). Tissot uses 18-carat gold ( 75 % pure gold ) in the manufacturing of its watch cases and bracelets. Depending on the required colour, the alloy changes slightly :
- 18K yellow gold is generally made of 75 %
gold, 12.5 % silver and 12.5 % copper ;
- 18K rose gold is obtained by adding more
copper than silver ;
- 18K white gold is obtained by adding more silver
( or palladium ) than copper.
