Tissot PRX 35mm in ice blue and radiant gold

The PRX 35mm Powermatic 80 in ice blue features a waffled dial to catch light like snow on a frozen Alpine morning. In radiant gold, you get that classic 1970s disco era look with a dash of boldness and style.

On the ice blue version, the case and strap get a regular steel finish while on the radiant gold version, you get a matching gold PVD strap and case finish. The bracelet features a triple-blade folding steel clasp.

These timepieces are more than accessories; they’re symbols of life’s diverse palette. With their robust functionality and audacious style, they encourage wearers to embrace the present moment and express their individuality.

The Movement & Case Specs

The PRX Powermatic 80 is a Swiss automatic movement with an 80-hour power reserve, a Nivachron hairspring with self-winding. It sits within the PRX 35mm’s case, which is just 10.9mm thick and constructed of 316L stainless steel.

The front glass is a scratch resistant sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating while the back glass uses regular mineral glass. The timepiece features 100m water resistance (10 ATM) for added durability.

There is a date display at the 3 o’clock position with hour and minute baton hands coated in Super-LumiNova. The bezel is polished steel and there is an engraved crown.

Price and Availability

The ice blue version is available for the same RM3,100 price tag as the existing black and green dials whereas the radiant gold version goes for RM3,600. These watches are available on the official Tissot Malaysia website, where they can be reserved at particular boutiques.

About PRX

Tissot says ‘PR’ stands for either “Particularly Robust” or “Precision and Resistance”. Advertising from the era emphasizes the timepiece’s robustness. This was thanks to the movement’s flexible joints and the synthetic materials used serving as shock absorbers. the ‘X’ in the name comes from its 10 bars of waterproofing.
