Over the years, Tissot’s Le Locle collection has always embodied itself as the brand’s most classic model. The collection’s namesake is a nod to the brand’s hometown in the Jura mountains, a small city which has garnered a reputation as the center of Swiss watchmaking.
Having kept its aesthetics simple and legible, each timepiece in the Le Locle collection bears signature features that preserve its lasting identity.
The smooth round bezel frames the textured dial, with hour markers kept to a minimum. A small date aperture is read off slightly away from the 3 o’clock mark, and the logo and collection scripts are located neatly at the respective top and bottom spots.
The collection offers a myriad of colorways, from full steel to bi-colored, the latter which often sees gold PVD-coated steel on the bezel and in between the supple bracelet links. Over on the caseback, the brand’s name is engraved together with its established year, with the self-winding movement exhibited through the sapphire crystal.
This year, Tissot extended its Le Locle range that would make you spoilt for choice to gift your loved ones on the next special occasion.
They refreshed the lineup of its ladies’ Le Locle Automatic model with nine different versions. Applied Roman numerals now mark 3, 6, 9 and 12 hours on the chapter ring, with other variations in diamonds.
Dials are now stylized in black and silver with Clou de Paris guilloche, and mother-of-pearl. The round bezels are also slightly updated, with curved bevelling along two points.
The watch has also been upsized to 29 mm (from 25.3 mm), which is still a dainty size for ladies’ wrists.
When it comes to the men’s line, the overall design doesn’t undergo a compromise. Similar variations are materialized in bigger 39.3mm versions, and are fitted with the Powermatic 80 caliber, which is indicative of up to 80 hours of power reserve.
