Tissot is relaunching its PRX integrated bracelet stainless steel sports watch, with plans to grow the design into a collection in its own right.

While Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe might have created the market for luxury stainless steel sports watches in the 1970s by the end of the decade many brands had their own take on the integrated bracelet watch.

Tissot’s PRX dropped in 1978 with the P and R standing for Precise and Robust, while the X referred to the model’s water resistance of 10 atmospheres of pressure or 100m.

Now the PRX is back as the PRX 40 205, a 40mm quartz watch (Tissot has an automatic model using Swatch Group’s Powermatic 80 movement in the works) presented with three different dial options.

The PRX design recalls a number of other designs from the era that used a round bezel on top of a broad, flat-topped tourneau or barrel-shaped case and a mix of highly polished and satin brushed finishing such as the Vacheron Constantin 222 or the Rolex Oysterquartz. The PRX’s razor-sharp lines benefit from the improvements made in manufacturing tolerances over the last 40 years and mounting the hands closer to the watch glass makes the PRX appear slimmer than it actually is.

Tissot presents two contemporary models with black and blue sunray brushed dials with nickel-plated hour markers and hands, while a vertically brushed silver dial with rose gold tone hour markers and hands takes inspiration from the watch’s late 70s origins.

The PRX is available now via Tissot, priced $375 USD.
