[Home of Watches Watch Tasting] This year’s Tissot brings a very attractive watch series – Speed, its official name is Chrono XL, we can understand it as a large-sized version of the chronograph, and it is true, it has a chronograph function and also has a large 45mm case. In recent years, there have been more and more large watches, but how to make large watches, while increasing in size, without losing their aesthetics, instead of simply enlarging the size at the same scale? Tissot has a balanced job of the Chrono XL range. We can see what kind of tone the Tissot Speedway series large-size watch is through a blue dial.
Speedo series, the biggest feature, is the size, the direct impact of the large dial, is the large scale, in fact, the so-called beauty, must have a balanced proportion, the large scale formed by the time display ring area, about 2/5 of the diameter of the disk surface, for sports watches, this is a proportion that can show atmospheric demeanor.
In a sense, large sizes can become a trend that reflects people’s changing lifestyles. Although the SpeedRush series watch is large, according to common sense, it should be a very tough men’s sports watch, but the SpeedSpur series is not a pure sports as a point of fit, but a casual, comfortable rhythm, let you feel its charm.
Blue dial, very popular in recent years, see more black, white and gray and other colors, blue makes people feel more balanced, it will not look obtrusive or too ostentatious, nor feel old-fashioned, blue has always been used in many high-end clothing. Blue is sometimes a gentleman’s color, sometimes a very dynamic hue, depending on how you dress, it will match different temperament. At the same time, the watch has 30-minute and 1/10-second chronograph functions, simple and practical functions, helping you record wonderful moments at any time.
Stainless steel case PVD gray plating
The stainless steel case with a grey plating surface enhances the handsome and stylish charm of the watch. Of course, compared with the direct bare stainless steel color, the gray appearance is naturally more low-key, not so strong light, which can be well combined with the overall taste of the watch.
Although the case size is relatively large, it is not thick
