Introduced three years ago as the entry-level sports chronograph from Patek Philippe cheap replica watches UK, the ref. 5960/1A was originally in white with black accents. Now the colour scheme – the ref. 5960/1A-010 – has been inverted for Baselworld 2017.
Hardly earth shattering news but it’s from Geneva’s best so some hearts will beat faster nonetheless.

The new dial is “ebony black opaline”, while the rest of the Patek Philippe copy watches UK remains the same. A 40.5mm steel case with a matching steel bracelet, and the automatic calibre CH 28-520 IRM QA 24H inside.
Pricing has yet to be announced, but expect it to cost similar to the US$51,000 of the existing ref. 5960/1A in silver.
Hairsprings made of silicon, or silicium in Francophone watch-speak, were usually a feature found only in pricier watches, often costing US$5000 or more. Now Tissot has changed that with the Ballade Powermatic 80 that starts at just US$925, a sterling example of what industrial production can accomplish – Tissot is the Switzerland’s largest maker of watches, with an output of some 4m or about 15% of the nation’s total production.

The Powermatic 80 movement cheap fake Tissot watches, or more precisely the calibre C07.811 Si, is a heavily souped up ETA 2824, the no-frills workhorse movement found in many affordable watches. While the basic ETA 2824 has a 38 hour power reserve, the Powermatic 80 will run for 80 hours, or just over three days. And because the movement is regulated by machine when put together, there’s no need for a regulator index, a feature that’s no doubt derived from the technology inside the Sistem51 made by Swatch, Tissot’s sister company.
But the highlight is the hairspring made of silicon (more specifically, silicon with an oxide layer), a material that is immune to magnetism and ambient temperature changes, as well as being lightweight and robust. Though silicon is more fragile than metal when handled, replacing silicon parts is swift and low-cost, since they are produced by the hundreds in what is akin to a high-tech printer.

Visually the Ballade is much less interesting than the technical features inside alas. The case is stainless steel, decorated with a hobnail pattern on the bezel and dial. The Tissot Ballade series replica watches UK are available in two sizes each for men and women: the Ballade Gent (39mm or 41mm) and the Ballade Lady (30.6mm or 32mm).
