For those of you with smaller wrists that like Tissot’s PRX line, this could be the watch for you.
Last year, Tissot introduced the PRX collection, first a quartz powered version in a 40 mm x 10.4 mm case for $375 — followed by a mechanical version in a slightly thicker 40 mm x 11.3 mm case for $675. Tissot hit the mark with this 1978-inspired throwback angular stainless steel case and integrated bracelet.
Building on that success, the Swatch Group-owned accessible volume brand Tissot recently announced a new smaller version of the popular PRX line, offered in a 35 mm x 9.6 mm steel case with an integrated quick-release equipped bracelet. The Tissot PRX 35 mm will be available later this year in the US as a quartz model and should be an excellent alternative to the 40 mm version — for those with thinner wrists.
Featuring a retro design with a modern battery-powered Swiss quartz caliber ETA F05.115 movement, the watch displays hours, minutes, a sweeping center seconds (with a ticking motion), and a date indicator at 3. Applied baton-shaped indices and baton-shaped hands sit atop your choice of five different sunburst dials: silver, green, light blue, dark blue, or a gold-plated dial (with a gold-plated case).
Despite the low entry price point, the PRX 35 mm comes with a robust screw-in solid steel caseback, a screw-down crown, and a premium sapphire crystal. The depth rating is 100 meters and the total weight of the PRX 35 mm is 97 grams with the bracelet.
The US retail price is estimated to be $375. If Tissot uses the same logic as they did last year with the PRX 40 mm — a mechanical variant of the quartz-powered PRX 35 mm could also appear later this year.
