This holiday season, it's time to look back on the year that was, on who we were, and who we had become.
What does it mean to be a gentleman these days? What does it mean to be a lady? It means valuing tradition, looking past the surface, and appreciating things that outlast the current times.
The Tissot Gentleman and T-My Lady
These are what the Tissot Gentleman Powermatic 80 Silicium and the Tissot T-My Lady Automatic stand for. Aptly named, these watches are made with tradition, excellence, and elegance: values that will always have a place in the world, whatever shape it takes from here.
This makes them the ideal gifts for the most important people in your life—or even for yourself—because just like any gentleman or lady, these watches will keep on ticking, following their own rhythm, no matter where they’re headed.
The Tissot Gentleman isn’t just a timepiece—it’s a statement. Subtle, refined, and possessing a distinctive charm, this watch is unapologetic and at ease with what it is.
A gentleman is made in the details, and so too, is this watch. It’s these details that make the watch so distinctive. And it all begins with the dial.
At the center of the Gentleman’s dial is a marking in the shape of a circular sighting-line, making the dial easily legible. The hour markers are executed in a satin finish, complemented by lumed dauphine hands. A slender seconds hand easily keeps track of the passing time, while a subtle window at 3 o’clock displays the date and adds functionality.
The Gentleman comes in black, cream opaline, chocolate, or silver dial options, with a three-link satin-brushed bracelet. Alternatively, there are versions with black, camel, or chocolate calfskin leather strap, with contrasting topstitching for added detail.
Under the steel-and-gold case runs the Powermatic 80 Silicon, a robust movement that’s built in the traditional way, with a power reserve of 80 hours, and a few modern touches for reliability.
The Gentleman is also water-resistant up to 50 m, allowing you to use it regularly without worry. With its clean, elegant lines, this is a watch that would be at ease in the boardroom or behind the wheel on a weekend drive to the country: just as a gentleman would. And at 40 mm, it strikes the right balance for everyday wear.
Eduardo Lara: A Gentleman with many talents
As a lawyer in Brazil, and a fitness coach, model, DJ, and diver in the Philippines, Eduardo Lara is a man of many talents. Whether he finds himself in the city, in front of a camera, or perhaps even back in the courtroom, the Gentleman keeps him in touch with who he is.
Tissot T-My Lady
Displaying elegance, nobility, and subtle strength, this watch is a companion to the modern lady.
Made of 18k solid rose gold, the T-My Lady is marked by its clean, uncluttered dial, which comes in sunburst blue, opaline, or a silvered finish. There’s also a version with sunburst anthracite and diamond hour markers, for ladies of a more elegant disposition. In all versions, delicately finished dauphine hands run across the dial to tell the time, while a window displays the date at the 3 o’clock position.
Beneath the case ticks the Powermatic 48, an automatic movement that will keep the watch running with a power reserve of 48 hours. The watch can be worn with a burnished and satin-finished three-link steel bracelet, or a beige or brown calfskin leather strap.
Whether for business, pleasure, or as an everyday accessory, the T-My Lady would be easy to wear to any occasion. And at 29 mm, you would hardly even feel the weight.
Christi McGarry: Lady of the times
As a beauty queen, host, DJ, and model, Christi McGarry can be found anywhere from the studios, the DJ booths, or even by the sea. But through these places, and all the ones in between, the T-My Lady remains a constant companion.
Whether you’re a modern gentleman or a lady of the times, it helps to have something on your wrist that keeps you grounded: a reminder of who you are, no matter where you go. While the world may keep changing around you, these watches will carry on with elegance—mementos of the year that have passed and a token of hope for the year to come.
