The Tissot Couturier Day-Date is part of the Couturier family that also comprises three-hand and chronograph watches. This piece is a low-cost addition to the day-date genre that isn’t exactly overcrowded. It is basically a new version of the Tissot T-One Day Date. This piece has a simple dial design, with a symmetrical arrangement of day above and date below. The date window is interesting for the arc-shaped frame that gives an impression of lots of space, even though the actual window is the usual small square shape.
The watch has a 39mm case in steel, 10.8 mm thick, with a sapphire watchglass. The case is waterproof to 10 bar, 100 metres. The display caseback reveals the Powermatic 80 movement, which is self-winding and provides 80 hours power reserve. The range was previously fitted with the ETA 2834-2, a classical movement with 38-40 hours power reserve, and in fact the versions shown below have this movement. The piece shown above costs €540.
