The Tissot Le Locle Regulateur is another member of the Le Locle family of watches named after Tissot's home in the Swiss Jura Mountains. The Regulateur design emphasizes the minutes and is a nod to the original and highly accurate "Regulateur" clocks used in workshops in the eighteenth and nineteenth century as a reference to check the accuracy of the pocket watches of the day.
Its balanced dial creates a mature and refined look recalling through design the functional heritage of the type. Available in three variations; all-steel, yellow gold (PVD) & steel two-tone, or an all rose gold PVD with a classic black dial, the moderate size just under 40mm (39.3 to be precise) case houses a Swiss ETA movement visible through the crystal back and retails for a fairly modest $795-$950. www.us.tissotshop.com
