The uncompromising Swiss Watchmakers have succeeded yet again in creating a magnificent time-telling beauty. The watch is a PVD coated 316L stainless steel available in 2 polished shades– a rose gold and a two-tone version. Both the versions have round cases that measure 39.3mm in diamete. Watch movement aficionados can now admire the delicate working through the transparent sapphire glass case back.
The case back also has a split-window that has been a trademark of the watches from the Le Locle series. Both front and back of the chronometer has been coated with anti-reflective sapphire crystals that are scratch resistant too. These elegant pieces have black, guilloche patterned dial. The dial also features intricately designed, leaf-styled, hour and minutes hand along with a thin seconds hand all made from rose gold PVD.
The Arabic numerals lend a dash of refined novelty to the timepiece. Keeping with traditions, a small window is present near the 3-o-clock position that shows the date. The name of the brand-“TISSOT” and the year in which the company was established in the small Swiss town of Jura-“1853” are seen below the 12’0 clock position.
The space above the numeral 6 on the dial features the name of the model. The watches have 2 options when it comes to the strap. You are free to choose between the classic alligator strap with a synchronized butterfly clasp or a PVD coated stainless steel bracelet with a matching butterfly clasp.
This classic, elegant and a perfect epitome of perfectly made time pieces, has been testified and certified by the COSC i.e. Control Officiel Suisse Chronometers for the cutting edge movements and precision put in by the uncompromising Swiss watchmakers who live up to Tissot’s signature-“Innovators by Tradition”.

Price Of Tissot Le Locle Automatic Chronometer
The two color varieties of the Le Locle Automatic Chronometer differ a little in their price. The polished rose gold version cost $1,295 while the dual tone version will set you back by $1,350.
I won’t tell you that it the best watch. There is nothing new as far as the functions are concerned but if you’re an avid collector of intricate watches and a true fan of the newest innovation of the technology of watch work, this watch will seem the perfect marriage between both.
The cost might seem a bit steep when compared to other non-chronometers offering the same functions but then backed by the COSC certificate and the Tissot heritage of fabulous design that will never fail your visual senses; you’ll love yourself for making a fantastic investment for this elegant novelty.
