Tissot’s Finally Figured Out Less is More (Sort of)

Posted on April 27, 2011


Almost minimalist (get rid of the arrows on the bezel please), the Tissot T-Navigator Automatic in stainless steel with black PVD bezel comes equipped with a pretty standard 25 jewel ETA 2836-2. At USD895, it’s pretty much the poor man’s version of a timepiece that’s been very close to my heart – the Perrelet Turbine.

At 43mm, with sapphire crystal and case back it differs at one main point- PRICE. USD6,000 vs USD895 and you still get the same spinning turbine joy that all hot blooded males love and appreciate.

Obviously, the Perrelet Turbine is proportionately (warning: math joke incoming) 7x more mesmerising with the see-through dial and the higher specced ETA 2892 based Perrelet P-181 movement with patented Double Rotor winding mechanism.

As for the “figured out” part; well… Their chronograph version leaves much to be desired.
