Last year, Tissot introduced subtle enhancements and a new automatic movement to the classic Chemin des Tourelles collection. This year, the collection expands yet again with three skeleton versions of this enduring favourite.

Available in a 39mm case, these skeleton watches offer a range of dial and strap options, appealing to both seasoned horological connoisseurs and newcomers alike. The Chemin des Tourelles Skeleton series keeps its traditional design, while offering a window into the watch that invites wearers to observe the precise detailing into the heart of the timekeeper.

The watch features a case with a polished and vertically brushed finish, topped with a domed sapphire crystal. The hours and minutes dauphine hands, both sandblasted and polished, along with slimline, gently faceted hour markers, are crafted to contribute to the watch’s visual allure. The skeleton collection provides a unique fit for every preference.

The blue variant, a classic with a twist, features a dial adorned with Clous de Paris patterns and styled with Roman numeral indices, paired with a sophisticated five-link bracelet. This model seamlessly combines traditional elegance with contemporary style elements.

The sleek and shadowed variant, a full black PVD version presents a sunray dial, smoked glass to ensure transparency with a bit of shadow, and simple baton indices with nickled black dots in between, using the same material as the baton indices. This model’s allure is further enhanced by a black grained leather strap, offering a stark, contemporary look that stands out for its simple yet powerful aesthetic.

Finally, the ivory model exudes a subtle charm with a sunray ivory-coloured dial, complemented by yellow gold PVD baton indices and ivory dots in between. Encased in a stainless-steel case, it is worn on a high-quality patina khaki grained leather strap, bringing a mix of traditional vibes with a fresh perspective.
