New: Tissot PRX Damian Lillard Special Edition

The Tissot PRX Damian Lillard Special Edition Ref. T137.407.33.051.00 retails for SGD 1,200 inclusive of GST.


Interesting new collaboration. Tissot has always been associated with sport. Their long time sponsorship of the Grand Tours is one example of their enthusiasm and involvement with the sporting greats. But we must say, this new collaboration with NBA superstar Damian Lilliard is a bit of a surprise. The watch carries some of the signatures which characterised Damian’s style.

Using their gold PVD cased automatic PRX as a starting point, Tissot used an embossing with the number “0” on the dial instead of the wafer pattern. This being a reference to Damian’s jersey number: No. 0 with the Milwaukee Bucks. Other small but very interesting touches are the engravings on the rehaut. The four quardrants spell out DAME (reference to Dame DOLLA which is his rapper name) and TIME with DDKK and YKWTII, four catch phrases of important details in Lilian’s life. Details are spelled out in the release document below. And of course, the counter weight to the sweep seconds hand carries the stylised letter D with two strokes over it like the dollar sign $ with D instead of S.

Other than these customised touches, the watch is a standard PRX Powermatic 80 in gold PVD. Same case dimensions and the same, reliable Powermatic 80 movement is used. The Powermatic 80 is based on the ETA C07.111 which itself is derived from the ETA 2824-2. The case back carries a print of Damian in action over the movement, and the usual and special edition verbiage engravings on the rear bezel.

The Special Edition carries the same price tag as the regular gold PVD PRX, which itself carries a small SGD 200 premium over our all time favourite PRX Powermatic 80. The PRX Damian Lilliard Special Edition is a must buy for fans of this iconic NBA player and rapper.


Le Locle, Switzerland. Tissot unveils a collaboration with eight times NBA All-Star Damian Lillard, also known as Dame D.O.L.L.A. on the music scene. The PRX Damian Lillard Special Edition combines the brand’s expertise through an automatic edition of its iconic watch, with Damian’s signature style. Priced within reach, this collaboration embodies both Tissot’s and Lillard’s commitment to making greatness attainable.

The synergy between the Swiss brand story and Damian’s values is unmistakable. Both went through a singular and obstacle-filled journey to the pursuit of success through dedication and time. The PRX Damian Lillard Special Edition is the manifestation of a shared philosophy. 

Tissot and I share a common belief – greatness can be for everyone.” He adds “Creating this signature PRX watch with Tissot has been an incredible experience. What I love about the PRX collection is its sleek design paired with the Swiss watch quality we all know, but still comes at a price that’s fair. A watch that speaks to my style and values – high quality, down-to-earth, and inclusive. It’s about bringing top-notch Swiss craftsmanship experience to every wrist, not just the privileged few.”

Signature Twist on the Wrist

This creation blends the well-known features of the PRX Powermatic 80 with unique elements that reflect Lillard’s personality and career. Based on the gold PVD model variant, this special edition boasts a distinct black dial embossed with the number ‘0’, a nod to Lillard’s jersey number, creating a backdrop that’s both fresh and personal. The second hand features Damian’s monogram, a subtle yet meaningful change. 

The flange of the watch reveals more personal details, with each quadrant telling a part of Lillard’s story. ‘DAME’ and ‘TIME’ adorn the top left and right corners respectively, synonymous with Lillard’s on-court moniker and clutch performances. The bottom right corner, marked ‘DDKK’, is a heartfelt homage to his family: Damian, Damian Lamonte Ollie, Kali Emma Lee, and Kalii Laheem. The bottom left corner boldly states ‘YKWTII’, an acronym for ‘You Know What Time It Is’, setting the stage for those iconic ‘Dame Time’ moments.

The transparent caseback offers a unique visual: the famous ‘Dame Time’ celebration. This element adds a layer of depth and narrative to the watch, making it not just a timepiece but a story on the wrist. 

Different, but still the same

The PRX Powermatic 80 Gold PVD is encased in a 40 mm diameter gold-PVD body, adorned with polished and satin finishes. The watch features a sapphire crystal front and a mineral glass back, ensuring durability and clarity. With water resistance up to 100 meters and an engraved crown, it’s designed for both style and function. Inside, the Powermatic 80 calibre powers the watch, boasting an 80-hour reserve, with a precision movement including a Nivachron™ balance hairspring, mirrors the exceptional performance and reliability akin to Damian’s on-court prowess. 

The special edition dial, like it’s regular version, is adorned with indices and baton hands coated in Super-LumiNova®, always guarantees readability. The gold-PVD bracelet features a single link with an interchangeable system, so it can be switched for a rubber or leather strap in a flash, reflecting the ease with which Dame smoothly transitions from his courtside action to the music scenes, shining both on the basketball court or in the studio. Finally, the triple-blade folding clasp allows for security and ease-of-use. 

Everyone knows what time it is.

It’s finally Lillard Time. The collaboration between the Swiss brand and its NBA ambassador takes a fan’s favourite and offers a version that’s as high quality as it is full of personal anecdotes. It may appeal to watch fans in general, but it will also be a unique timepiece for those who support Damian and his values. To celebrate a career that commands respect through its dedication, Tissot crafted a special timepiece for a player who is even more so. It’s about Dame Time.
