Excellent Watch -- Great Movement
on December 10, 2010
This watch is excellent. The c01.211 movement keeps time very well in terms of seconds -/+ a day and keeps better time than some of my regulated ETA/Valjoux 7750 movements. My average loss is around -2 seconds a day, based upon time syncing with NIST Internet Time clock. Tissot really hit home with this watch. The chronograph works very well, however I wish it had a 12 hour counter rather than just 6 hours, but most of my timing needs are under 6 hours anyways. The other complication I wish it had was a day of week indicator, as it is useful. The movement is also only 21,600 BPH, which doesn't make the large chronograph second hand move too fluidly, unlike the 7750 that is 28,800 BPH. When the watch is running, the movement can be hardly noticed when put up to your ear. It is an extremely quiet automatic movement. Being that the clock timing second hand is small, it make it look like it is in fluid motion. However, the dial of the watch is very clean and easy to read under most lighting conditions and activities. Also the hands line up perfectly to the markers on the face. The watch has an open glass caseback so you can see the inner workings and the beauty of the watch. The thickness of the watch is almost a 1/2 inch thick, making it a large watch, for most, it is nice. For some it might not be so nice. The weight for the size of the watch is quite deceiving, as it weighs 186 grams or roughly 6.5 ounces. Despite it being so large, it is a wonderful watch to wear and enjoy for many years to come.
