The Tissot Powermatic 80 Automatic caliber is ushering in a new era of ultra-precise low-cost mechanical movements
At a first glance it´s just another ETA caliber. Way off the mark! In analogy to the Sistem 51 caliber from Swatch the Powermatic 80 Automatic caliber is another silent watchmaking revolution.

Tudor, Rolex´s little sister, is making efforts to get more and more attractive. The plans of the brand are ambitious.
Please let me know your opinion and tell me if you see it the same way as I do. You have for sure already seen the new watches; they are part of Tudor´s new effort to gain market shares.
This is a watchmaking revolution! While Omega is already gearing up for industrial-scale production of this technology, most of its competitors are still half asleep.
