BASELNEWS: It is hip to be square - The Tissot Quadrato Chrono Valjoux
Tissot offers convincing proof of the timeless style of square wristwatches in the form of the Tissot Quadrato Chrono Valjoux. The right-angled form of the case literally frames a masterpiece of precision timekeeping, the Swiss Valjoux chronograph movement. With this addition to its successful Tissot Quadrato Collection, Tissot presents a new chapter in a history of square timepieces dating back to the 1920s.
A tradition shaped by innovation
The contemporary Tissot Quadrato Chrono Valjoux marries tradition and innovation. Its squared shape reminisces about the brand’s popular square-faced Hermetic travel and bag watches, all the rage in the 1920s, and about its first square automatic wristwatch launched in the early 1940s. Today’s Tissot Quadrato watches continue a proud Tissot tradition of watching making expertise with their intricate mechanism. Their looks also pay a respectful tribute to a design heritage rooted in Swiss craftsmanship. These watches satisfy the whims of contemporary men and women whose fondness of the past is a vital ingredient for setting tomorrow’s trends.
Cutting edge design
The material combinations and dynamic visual details of the Tissot Quadrato Chrono Valjoux produce a sporty character with a hint of urban edginess. This is clearly highlighted by strong lines and powerful colour contrasts. Touches of bright red draw attention to the seconds and counter hands, bringing dynamism to the geometry of the dial and case design, while two facetted silver hands record the passing of the hours and minutes. Fine rays emerge from the centre of the dial, contrasting with the bold indices. The black dial is elegantly complemented by either a black leather strap or a stainless steel bracelet. Functionality remains the watch’s heart beat, with a symmetrical quartet of shapes on the dial, two round and two squared, housing the chronograph counters, date display and logo, to create a stunning miniaturized cockpit for the wrist.
