Baselworld Basel 2013-tissot 80-hour Power Reserve Automatic Mechanical Watch

The design of the Tissot Haoji series watches is very pure and noble. Its mechanical movement has a power reserve of up to 80 hours, giving the watch an endless luxury experience.
These extraordinary qualities are attributed to its revolutionary Mechanical Power 80 movement. After full strings, this movement can work for three days without any adjustment. Whether you’re busy at work or on a leisurely vacation, you can control the time anytime, anywhere, and face any arrangement calmly.

Extraordinary art
The Tissot Hao Zhi series mechanical automatic watch is full of noble temperament. It conveys a natural and elegant style through pure color matching and delicate and smooth design. Through the skillful use of frosting and polishing, many of the watch’s design details are highlighted, reflecting the wearer’s strong personal style, which makes it impossible to refuse. The characteristics of the Tissot series are numerous, and its elegant and noble appearance is icing on the cake. However, the internal movement is the most luxurious finishing touch of the entire watch. With the continuous development of watchmaking technology as a discipline, Tissot also relies on these new technologies to continuously pursue precision and strive to climb the peak of timing technology. Some models of this series have been certified by COSC (Swiss Official Observatory Testing Organization).
Mechanical power 80 automatic winding movement
The courage to innovate is an integral part of Tissot’s DNA and the core philosophy of the company. Adhering to this concept, Tissot has developed a high-performance movement with a cross-age significance. Tissot and the ETA factory worked closely to launch this latest automatic movement. The two sides worked together to push the performance of the movement in terms of precision and power storage to new limits, and a new interpretation of ‘time’. ‘Innovation, from tradition’ is the brand spirit of Tissot, and ETA is good at the development of precision movements. It is because the two companies successfully supported and carried each other that this new movement emerged.
The secret of Tissot’s success lies in continuously innovating its professional watchmaking techniques and traditions, and achieving success again and again. The introduction of this movement is no exception. The mechanical power 80 movement not only shows extraordinary precision, but also has an 80-hour power reserve. In addition, adhering to the brand concept of making luxury goods more accessible, the price of this revolutionary movement is enough to make you feel excited.
working principle
The standard movement is usually equipped with a barrel, which can store 36 hours of power when full. However, in the development of the mechanical power 80 movement, Tissot and ETA designed a spring barrel with a completely new structure, trying to make the power reserve more durable. The new movement has a power reserve of up to 80 hours without having to wind it. The powerful power reserve cannot meet the high requirements of the brand for itself, so Tissot and ETA also focused on improving the adjustment system to make the movement more accurate and more durable. Another reason why the movement is more durable is to cancel the scale division in the watch’s original adjustment system and replace it with an innovative technical component. The new thinking mode and necessary improvements have created a revolutionary mechanical power 80 automatic movement. You can experience the excellent performance of this movement yourself in the Tissot Haoji watch, it is the first watch using this movement.
Tissot increases movement power reserve to 80 hours
Since the birth of Tissot in 1853, it has been adhering to the brand concept of ‘innovation and tradition.’ Driven by this concept, Tissot has developed a new revolutionary fully automatic mechanical power 80 movement. The power reserve of this movement can reach an unprecedented 80 hours. Mechanical Power 80 movement was developed in cooperation with Tissot and movement manufacturer ETA. It was first used in the Tissot Haoji series. Compared to the 42-hour power reserve of the traditional movement, the Tissot Mechanical Power 80 movement can continue to work for 80 hours. As a result, the wearer can take off his watch on Friday night and enjoy the weekend to the fullest. Put it on again after the weekend without any manipulation of the watch, the watch still keeps the time accurately.
In order to achieve this technological leap, Tissot has greatly reduced the energy consumption of watch movements during operation. The vibration frequency of the Powematic 80 movement was reduced from 4 Hz to 3 Hz. The escapement of this movement uses a high-performance synthetic material to reduce friction. At the same time, because the diameter of the mainspring shaft is shortened, the extension space of the mainspring can be enlarged, thereby greatly prolonging the power reserve time. Finally, Tissot also used an innovative method to adjust the balance wheel, which further improved the accuracy of the watch.
Adhering to the brand concept of ‘innovation, originating from tradition’, Tissot, a traditional Swiss watchmaking brand, has launched this new product embodying a highly innovative spirit.
