All the automatic watches have an elegant guilloche pattern engraved in the center of the dial. On some models, this is surrounded by a flat track for the hours, with stylized Roman numerals at 12, 3, 6 and 9; angular appliques mark the other hours.
As seen on the dial, all mechanical versions of the Vintage contain the Powermatic 80 movement. This in-house caliber is so named for its 80-hour power reserve – which is all the more impressive in an affordable Swiss automatic. It beats at 21,600 vph. Although it is not COSC-certified, this is the same movement used in the Tissot Powermatic 80 Chronometer that debuted in 2013.
i like Tissot watches, as these lovely watches do not cost an arm and a leg.
I’m not understanding something here, if it’s the same movement as the Powermatic 80 chronometer why is it not COSC certified? Did Tissot just not submit it for testing at the COSC or is there something more to it than that? Thanks….
These are nice. If priced right! I don’t care about COSC certification, don’t know who does as its more a marketing thing. But antimagnetic, shock, water and longer intervals off wrist without having to manually adjust is great things we buyers do look for!
