The Origin of a Species

Men's watches with up-to-the-minute style

If Tissot’s Luxury Automatic weren’t so stylish, you might forget it exists

Don’t look now, but the light on your BlackBerry is blinking. Your Droid is buzzing. Your iPad barely has enough power left for a game of Angry Birds. And say, have you replaced the battery in your watch lately? If you’re not careful, you’re liable to be overcome by the same technology that’s supposed to make your life easier. It’s enough to make one long for the era of self-winding watches, when all you had to do to make your timepiece work was wear it regularly. With Tissot’s Luxury Automatic, whose Powermatic 80 self-winding movement maintains power for 80 hours between uses, you don’t even have to do that. Put it on every three-ish days, and it’ll do the rest. $995 / www.tissot.ch
