The Tissot Gentleman is a multi-purpose watch, both ergonomic and elegant in any circumstance. This 40 mm-diameter model shows Tissot's devotion to fine workmanship in its watchmaking, with carefully-wrought details. The steel case is embellished by a bezel made entirely of 18 ct rose gold. With a central marking in the shape of a circular sighting-line makes the dial easy to read and gives it a contemporary appearance. The ring of applique hour markers, bevelled and buffed to a satin finish, is accentuated by faceted dauphine hands with white luminescent material. The date aperture at 3'oclock reveals the subtle elegance of the dial. A very slender second hand enables the time to be read with great precision, to the second.
The "Powermatic 80 Silicium" indication is a reminder that the Gentleman has an exceptional calibre. Tissot uses the ETA C07.811, better known under the name of Powermatic 80, in the version with a silicon balance-spring. This spring provides greater longevity, more precise running and greater resistance to magnetic fields. The self-winding movement has a very convenient power reserve of 80 hours, hence its name.
