Classically fashionable and ruggedly masculine, the Tissot PRS200 stainless steel men's watch features ultra-precise Swiss chronograph timing features. It enables you to time events up to 30 minutes, displaying results to 1/10th of a second, and it offers standard start/stop functionality as well as split (intermediate) and add (partial) functions. The large, round silver stainless steel watch case measures 40mm (1.6 inches) wide and 11mm (0.45 inches) thick. It's topped by a unidirectional rotating bezel with black engraved elapsed time markings and brushed riders.
The black dial includes three black chronograph subdials, large luminous dauphine hands (with seconds hand) and hour markers, and an automatic date calendar at 4 o'clock. The silver stainless steel bracelet band offers links of mixed brushed and polished finishes, and it's joined by a double-locking clasp for extra security. Other features include a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a screw-down crown and caseback for water resistance to 200 meters (660 feet)--suitable for scuba diving.
For more than 150 years, Tissot has embodied the innovation and tradition of Swiss watch-making. Based in the Neuchâtel area of the Jura Mountains, in Le Locle, Switzerland, Charles-Félicien Tissot and his son Charles-Emile created the watch making company Tissot in 1853. Whether in the technology of its movements, in the research for special materials or in the very functions of the watch itself, Tissot's engineers and watchmakers have developed pioneering timepieces over the years. A member of the Swatch Group since 1985, Tissot watches are available in over 140 countries around the world.
Tissot uses the best movements (from ETA SA Manufacture Horlogère Suisse), the highest quality materials (316L steel, 18K gold, titanium) and scratchproof glasses (sapphire crystal--at least 2500 Vickers). The company's timepieces have also been chosen as official timekeepers for world championships in cycling, motorcycling, fencing and ice hockey.

1. Sapphire glass
2. 200M/660FT water resistant
4. Rotating bezel dial.
The quality of the chain is A Grade and when gets dirty can be washed with warm water and soft detergent. The shine remains same for years. I have tried Tag Heur, Fossil, and DKNY but honestly I find this best. Nobody in the Swiss industry can beat the value for product, which only Tissot can give.
This is a great buy as you can always compare the features with a lot expensive watches. Moreover, Tissot is any day better than brands like Swatch, Esprit, and Fossil. The company which has been in watch making business since 1853 cannot be wrong or just average, it has to be cut above the rest and that what exactly Tissot is, and it is proved by the quality of PRS200.
- I have been a restaurant manager all of these years. My watch takes about as much abuse as you're ever going to give a watch. I bang this watch hard (on a daily basis) on just about any surface possible including steel, concrete, rock, glass, etc. There is not a single scratch on the sapphire crystal.
- The only time I have ever had to reset the time is when the battery is dying. Otherwise it matches the clock on my cell phone exactly.
- I'm constantly washing my hands at work. I swim with watch on, etc. No issues with watertight.
- Trying to think of more praise! Oh yeah, it looks great, solid feel, etc. Pix online don't do it justice. I couldn't decide between black face and "Sapphire Blue." Finally got the blue one which has some kind of finish to the dial face (ceramic?) that makes it pearlescent in light- very cool! Now that I noticed it online in black for $274 I'm seriously contemplating getting that too!
- Do yourself a favor and don't buy any more "disposable" $50-200 watches without a sapphire crystal. They may keep working for years but they look like crap in 6 months (if you wear your watch in an "abusive" environment).
- Tip from jeweler- once a week spray it with windex and wash it off. Makes stainless sparkle and gets rid of grime.
- Conclusion- just about the best $400 I can remember spending on any product!
The watches are a good size (42mm) with sunken sub-dials and easy to read luminous hands. The hour markings are clear and the square-cut date window is at the 4 o'clock position. The watch case is made of highly polished stainless steel and is sealed with a six point (jaxa) waterproof caseback featuring a Tissot crest engraving.
Obviously a sports watch, the key benefits include:
* scratch-resistant sapphire crystal watch glass
* a unidirectional rotating bezel with six toothed-rim sections and a prominent zero marker
* Swiss quartz (ETA G10.211) chronograph movement providing 10th of seconds/ seconds/ 30 min
* screw-down crown providing water-tightness to 200 metres (660 feet)
* an expander link section on the bracelet (extra 25mm) to enable it to be worn over a wetsuit
Mounted on a robust stainless steel strap, the deployment clasp employs a secondary locking clip with PRS200 in raised letters and a Tissot "T" in the centre of the main clasp.
I have enjoyed this watch for the last three years and it has kept good time.
