    Tissot’s new high-end quartz watches will be made from 18ct yellow or rose gold. The Tissot Excellence family is at the top end of the Swatch Group-owned company’s ranges, and the use of precious metals will elevate them higher in 2018.

    Nice looking, but...

    Why...why...why...use the 902.101 movement in a $2K piece?????

    It's even from the Normflatline...midrange...collection, not the higher-end Flatline. Which includes a very similarly sized, *thinner* PreciDrive...with better battery life.

    Early contender for Biggest Misfire of Baselworld.

    It's already listed:

    I love Tissot watches and think this is very classy looking but I am not so sure about paying over USD2,000 for an 18k watch with a USD20 movement inside.

    I'd pay $2,000 if this were an 18 K gold Grand Seiko with 9 F quartz in a high-beat heartbeat. But the people who replied here are spot on. Only the highest grade quartz movement is acceptable in a high end, high dollar watch.

    The press release says that it uses a Ronda movement? That's like GM using Ford engines. The movement choice is completely baffling in many ways.

    Huh?

    What press release says that? Or is it an article about it, rather than a PR?

    You're right, I should have looked at Tissot's web site.

    It was the linked article that said a Ronda movement. I thought that was too peculiar to be for real.
