Another novelty from the Tissot watches presented on Baselworld 2011 is a new Tissot Sculpture Line Skeleton Classic Hand Mixing Hollow Watch. This timepiece is made for those men who really like to look beyond the surface.
Distinguished by confidently contemporary shapes and finishes, it also braces with nostalgic touches, such as classic Roman numerals, hour-markers and a nicely stitched leather strap, ending at an elegant butterfly clasp, equipped with push-buttons.
Visibly Shaped by a Watchmaking Heritage
The new men’s timepiece from T-Gold collection comes with an 18-carat rose or yellow gold case, with a fixed bezel. This watch has smooth polished surfaces. The round case with 42.5 millimeters in diameter and thickness of 11.57 millimeters is acceptable for an average size of a wrist.
The Swiss-made Caliber 6497 skeleton mechanical movement is visible through two substantial cutouts on the dial, at the 12 o’clock and the 6 o’clock positions, and it can also be admired through a transparent case-back. A complex maze of metal elements joins forces to assure high precision. It is made especially for those who appreciate the beauty of rhythm. This movement is similar to the 6498 manual mechanical movement which has been incorporated in Tissot Sculpture Line Moonphase watch.
Embellished with 17 jewels, the hand-winding movement provides a 49-hour power reserve.
A black or a silver dial represents a modern design, while a brown leather strap, with a classy looking crocodile-print gives nostalgic character of the watch. The black dial which comes with model T71.8.471.53 is unmistakably fashionable, while a silver-colored variant T71.3.471.33 carries a tinge of nostalgia. The face of the new Tissot is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The water-resistance of the case is assured to 30 meters.
Sculpture Line Skeleton watch is a blend of traditional and contemporary classic and practical watch.
