Tissot Debuts New Green Dials for the PRX

New dials in the popular colour.

A bestseller thanks to its integrated-bracelet design and accessible price, the Tissot PRX now gets more new dial options, including a “light green” hue for the time-only PRX Powermatic 80 and a “graded” green for the PRX Chronograph. The new green dials join the recent blue dial options and more compact 35mm model.

Initial thoughts

The new models are only cosmetic updates, but are otherwise the same. The brushed steel cases and ETA movements remain unchanged. So do the respective prices, making them the same value propositions as before.

Notably, the chronograph dial gets a more substantive cosmetic upgrade beyond the colour. It now sports the waffle-patterned dial previously found only on the PRX time-only models. This is an attractive upgrade that imbues the model with a sportier aesthetic.

New dial options

The Powermatic 80’s dial features the same waffle pattern found in past models, but now finished in a “light” green hue that first seen on the quartz version released in 2021.

The chronograph dial is presented in a darker shade of green with a gradient finish. It also gains the same stamped pattern found on the time-only model.

This marks a departure from previous iterations of the chronograph, which were characterised by a vertically brushed finish with a two-colour scheme.

Both watches retain the same case dimensions and movements found on earlier models.

The three-hander is powered by the Powermatic 80.111, derived from the ETA C07.111. Tissot has enhanced the movement with various technical upgrades, such as a free-sprung balance wheel, an anti-magnetic Nivachron hairspring, and an impressive power reserve of 80 hours.

The chronograph is equipped with the Valjoux A05 H31, essentially an ETA Valjoux 7753 that has been enhanced to offer a prolonged power reserve of 60 hours.
