Tissot PRX vs Tissot PRX Powermatic 80 - Worth it?
The Tissot PRX and Tissot PRX Powermatic 80 often leave watch enthusiasts in a dilemma, trying to decide which one to buy. Let's break it down and compare the key aspects: Dial, Movement, and Case.
- Tissot PRX Powermatic 80: This watch features a textured waffle dial, which adds a sense of depth rarely found in watches under £1000. It comes in Silver, Blue, Black, Green, and a unique Light Blue, also known as 'Ice Blue.' The Light Blue dial is truly special, but if you prefer a more subtle color, the other options may not have enough "wow" factor to justify the higher price.
- Tissot PRX: The PRX flaunts a smooth, sunburst dial that stands out beautifully in natural light. It is available in Silver, Black, Blue, and Green. However, if you want something eye-catching, the exclusive Mint Green dial, nicknamed 'Tiffany,' adds an extra layer of charm to the already impressive PRX.
- Both the PRX and PRX Powermatic 80 share the same case and bracelet, offering little to differentiate them. However, the Powermatic 80 does have an open case-back, providing a direct view of the watch's movement. This feature is worth considering for those who appreciate seeing the inner workings.
- Tissot PRX: This watch houses a quartz movement, which has been the original movement for Tissot watches of this style. While our team often leans toward mechanical movements, it's hard to make a strong case for the Powermatic 80. The quartz movement in the PRX offers excellent battery life, an EOL indicator, and requires minimal maintenance, ticking all the right boxes.
- Tissot PRX Powermatic 80: On the other hand, the Powermatic 80 boasts an automatic movement. However, it doesn't represent anything particularly extraordinary, utilizing a regular hairspring, plastic escape wheel, and pallet fork. While it is a reliable workhorse, it may not offer enough to justify the higher price.
Ultimately, the decision comes down to personal preference. Both watches offer unique qualities, but in our opinion, the Tissot PRX Powermatic 80 doesn't offer enough to justify its premium price tag. However, if you value the textured dial and automatic movement, it may still be worth considering. Make your choice wisely and find the watch that suits you best.
