Tissot Ballade

Having earned multiple prizes at timing competitions, Tissot continues to push the boundaries of precision and reliability in affordable luxury timepieces. The new Tissot Ballade is the irrefutable proof with its silicon balance-spring. As a non-magnetic material, silicon provides greater stability and resistance, which translates into improved precision and longevity. Until now, silicon balance-springs were only found in the upper price segments: by introducing silicon to its Powermatic 80 movement with its impressive 80-hour power reserve, Tissot sets a new milestone in affordable mechanical watchmaking. As well as being technically advanced, the Tissot Ballade has lasting design appeal with details such as polished finishes and an elegant Clous de Paris motif on its bezel.
