TISSOT PRX 35mm Powermatic?

Since first seeing the PRX 80 I loved it but after trying it on at my local AD I quickly realised that the intergraded bracelet and 40mm case size made the watch wear way too big for my slim wrists. For a while I considered the quartz 35mm option but I knew deep down it wouldn’t have scratched the itch, I want a mechanical watch and I love the waffle dial on the powermatic models.  So when I saw the announcement of the 35mm powermatic I was over the moon but my                Question now is when and if they’re going to    release more variants/colour options? I‘m hoping to see a green 35mm powermatic. If anyone has any information I’d be very appreciative.

I thought and still think this watch looks awesome, but the concern I had after more research is how comfortable it may be. For the record, I've not tried this watch on, but I've heard that the AP Royal Oak has this problem, and this watch appears to be similar to that. I dunno, I need to try it on but it's still a beaut. 

To your question, I bet they will release more variants it seemed to be quite popular but we shall see.

I’ve never tried a Royal Oak on but I’ve tried the PRX on a few times now and it felt comfortable enough but I guess i’ll Never know how comfortable it really is until it’s adjusted to fit my wrist properly and I’ve worn it for an extended period. Hopefully it is comfortable though as it is  a cracking watch for the price. fingers crossed they release more variants.

I just started liking watches still didn't buy one thou. But I want this prx 80 to be my first watch. I wanna go for the black dile not sure if it's the right choice or is it too boring?

There’s No such thing as “too boring“. If you like the watch then it’s the right choice for you👍🏽 personally I think the PRX is a great watch and I would’ve been more than happy to have it as my first watch. I’d definitely go and try one on before you make a decision though as depending on the size of your wrist it may            Surprise you how big the watch fits due to the integrated bracelet.

Both are comfortable if sized correctly, I think that might be the problem that some face.  I'm with you OP, I love the PRX and would likely pick up a 35 in green if they made it just for something different in both size and movement.

I'll start by saying that obviously we all have our preferences, and that's ok.  And still, I don't get this thing people have with integrated bracelets and wrist size.  Every review of this watch goes on about the "true" lug-to-lug width including the first links as they don't fold all the way down.  And while that's true, I just don't think it's that important.  Yes, the first links come very close to the edges of my wrist, but your eye doesn't pick that up.  At least mine doesn't.  What I see is the case sitting nicely on my wrist and the bracelet going on from there.  I read it as two separate things, the case and the bracelet.  The bracelet starts well before the edge of my wrist, so even though those links are fixed, it just doesn't look like the watch hangs over or is too big.  I'm pretty sure some of the folks who don't like this are just fine with a metal G-Shock which does the same thing.  In fact...

I've got the bracelets folded back as far as they'll go, so this is how "wide" each watch is if we count the first links.  It may be hard to tell, but the G is significantly wider if we're counting the links that don't fully articulate.

Having said all that, why don't watches like this have fully articulated first links?  I find it hard to believe this is a particularly thorny engineering problem.  I'm looking at the watch right now, and it looks like it would be real simple to reshape the link and/or case to allow greater range of motion.

As for comfort, the bracelet is great.  The links are thin and it's very supple so it conforms to my wrist and moves with me well.  The only real complaint I have is the lack of adjustability, but that's the price for having a hidden clasp.

Love the green strap on the PRX, is it from tissot? And that AP is lovely too, is it the 25860ST?

I wouldn’t mind so much about the true lug to lug including the bracelet if I had larger or even average sized wrists but I have very small wrists and I prefer the lugs to End slightly before the edge of my wrist not only for The aesthetic side of things but I feel like slightly smaller watches tend to be comfier on my skinny wrists lol. 

You’re right about the watch not having fully articulating first links, it would make much more sense and doesn’t seem like too much of a hassle to implement them. It’s also good to hear that you find the bracelet comfortable with the links being thin. in regards to the lack of adjustability, are there and micro adjustments?

I think there are a few smaller links to help you fine tune the fit, but no micro adjust. I think this is the case with most bracelets with a butterfly clasp. I haven’t had an issue, but it’s something to consider.

I have a black powermatic with the waffle I love it. I always get compliments on it.

I have the 40mm blue quartz on the blue leather. The blue leather looks good but the quality is at best questionable. I thought that I’d like to try it on something different so a purchased the PRX bracelet. It changed the look of the watch completely which I liked but it wore much to big on me slender wrists. Hence the bracelet is for sale on eBay.

If Tissot get round to introducing the 35mm with a powermatic 80 I’ll give that a go on the bracelet.
