Tissot has some gorgeous green additions to its PRX watch collection

Tissot goes green with 2 additions to the PRX lineup

With summer just around the corner, at least we hope, the days of sweaty skin and cold indulgences are so close we can taste it, and mint ice cream is an absolute favorite around here. So, what better way to satisfy our urges before the temperature has gone up than with a mint green watch; close enough, right? Tissot just added to the PRX collection with an Automatic 35mm and 40mm in mint green (transitioning from a quartz to an automatic model), and a PRX Chronograph in a gradient dark green. If you’ve been awaiting the ideal Tissot PRX watch, you will be duly rewarded with these latest additions.

The Tissot PRX Automatic collection has had the watch industry in a chokehold for a while now, having coincided its launch impeccably with the surge in demand for luxury sports watches (an idea that still makes us do a double take). Tissot has slowly expanded its lineup, taking its time and taking inspiration from vintage models that they infused with an automatic movement.

The collection now spans two sizes, as we see with the new mint green addition. It comes in 35mm and 40mm and has a slim profile of just 10.9mm. The dial features an embossed tapisserie pattern, luminous markers and hands, and a framed date window. It has brushed and polished finishes, accentuated by a polished bezel, sapphire crystal on top, and transparent caseback.

Tissot has further expanded its PRX Chronograph collection with the new PRX Automatic Chronograph in a gradient dark green. While the technical specifications remain the same, the dial aesthetics are quite different. It measures a good 42mm x 14.5mm and is powered by the ETA A05.H31 movement, an upgraded iteration of the Valjoux 7753. It features a semi-openworked central rotor and a 60-hour power reserve.

The new dial includes central hours and minutes, small seconds at 9 o’clock, chronograph hours and minutes at 6 and 3 o’clock, chronograph seconds centrally located, and a date window framed at 4:30. Unlike its predecessors that had vertically brushed dials, and contrasting subdials, this deep green hue has a waffle dial, giving it major Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph vibes, yet this one is 20 times cheaper; essentially, it’s a dupe.

How much do these new Tissot watches cost, and where can you buy them?

The Tissot PRX Automatic Chronograph in dark green costs $1,895. The Tissot Powermatic 80 watch with a measurement of 40mm costs $725, while the 35mm watch will set you back just $695. Being that they’re quite affordable, they can all be bought online at the Tissot website or at Tissot store locations, and partners.

The top 10 most expensive watches at the Met Gala
Ben Simmons wearing dress by Thom Browne departs for the 2024 Met Gala on a theme 'The Garden of Time' from The Pierre Hotel in New York on May 6, 2024.

The Met Gala serves up some of the most jaw-dropping looks on a silver platter (or in this case a red carpet) and this year's theme, the "Garden of Time" did not disappoint. Taking inspiration from J.G. Ballard's evocative 1962 short story, the imaginative theme was the perfect backdrop for celebrities to show off some of their most expensive watches.

The core of the theme was the passage of time, and the world's most famous faces seized the opportunity to break out some of their most extraordinary timepieces, ranging from classic to avant-garde designs. For those who see fashion as more than just pieces of fabric and jewelry as more than just an accessory, the watches at the 2024 Met Gala surely commanded attention.

This Tag Heuer F1 watch collab might be our favorite nostalgic throwback yet
TAG Heuer partners with Kith for Formula 1 watch
TAG Heuer x Kith Formula 1 watches

In its heyday, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection was a sensation, with the '80s and '90s seeing commercial success with over 20 vibrant colors. Ronnie Fieg, founder of Kith, a streetwear brand known for items that take us back to the days when life just seemed simpler, is resurrecting these TAG Heuer watches, though they will cost more than the previous timepieces, with the originals selling for between $130 and $390.

With over 3 million sold, these colorful watches carry a deep sense of nostalgia for millennials, who to this day are a generation seemingly obsessed with the past, and that is why these new TAG Heuer watches will probably sell well once again. Plus, Max Verstappen recently wore one at the Miami Grand Prix, and with the 2-time World Champion's face on something, it always sells big.

The new Citizen Promaster Geo Trekker watch is an absolute beast
Citizen adds Geo Trekker to Promaster series
Citizen Promaster Geo Trekker

Some men prefer a super formal watch to pair with their work suits, like a Rolex or Patek Philippe; some prefer ostentatious, showy pieces like a Richard Mille or Audemars Piguet; and there are those who love a rugged feel to their timepieces. That's exactly what the newest Citizen Promaster Geo Trekker is all about: a heavy-duty beast that still has a formal touch if you ever need to go from hiking during the day to an event at night like you're Elon Musk.
Citizen watches Promaster anniversary: Citizen Promaster Geo Trekker

This year, Citizen Watches is celebrating the 35th anniversary of the Citizen Promaster series, and the Promaster Geo Trekker is the latest addition to the year-long celebration. To say it's full of some majorly advanced features would be an understatement, and it's as functional as it looks. With the state-of-the-art Eco-Drive Caliber H864 movement and a radio-controlled world timer, it's bold, to say the least, and will suit you just fine if you ever find yourself in a tent in the Carpathian mountains. This innovative movement uses the power of light, whether it be sun or artificial light, to power the watch in a sustainable way and eliminate the need for a battery replacement.
Technical specifications
So, what about these technical features? It's encased in a silver-tone stainless steel case, which you don't often see with such a heavy-duty watch, and is why we said you can go from day to night in it. It measures a truly massive 46mm in width and 11.5mm in thickness, and if you've ever worn a watch with this measurement, you'll understand how big that feels. The watch dial is protected by sapphire crystals, which are resistant to reflections and keep it safe from impact. The bracelet is stainless steel and comes with a fold-over clasp and hidden push buttons. Additionally, it has world-time capabilities using a Northern Hemisphere disc and date and power reserve indicators.
The Citizen Promaster Geo Trekker comes in two color variants
The Citizen Promaster Geo Trekker actually comes in two color variants: ref. BY3006-53H features standard brushed surfaces, while the ref. BY3005-56G features a sleek dark gray finish. The BY3006-53H has a dark gray dial, which maintains the monochromatic aesthetic, while the BY3005-56G has a black dial with subtle red accents, giving it a slight tactical look.
