Top Customer Reviews
The sound, the look, the feel.
The sound: It's not your quartz click click as each second passes. That's boring. When you put your ear up to this bad boy, you hear a machine working, and it works fast to deliver you the time.
The look: Shiny all around! Tissot designs beautiful watches. They are a hidden gem in the US. But! They are also part of the Swatch Group so there is a legacy like Ford or GM. Ok maybe just Ford. The front display is gorgeous. I tried to note that in the video but the watch goes out of focus a few times being so close to the camera, sorry.
The feel is great. WIth a few links taken out, it fits a little loose which is perfect. It has never come unclasped. With the screw-down crown, it has never popped out and stopped time. It's not too heavy but it's got enough heft to it to let you know that it's a real man's watch.
In conclusion, I think this is a great watch. It was my first Tissot but it won't be my last. They are a solid company in my book. The seller I bought it through on here offers a 2 year warranty that matches the maker's warranty (because buying on here does not give you the maker's warranty as they are not an authorized reseller).
Small by today's exaggerated style ( various online listings put the case diameter anywhere from 38mm to 42mm - mine seems to measure right at 40mm, excluding lugs and/or crown ), this timepiece will therefore "fit" all but the fattest wrists with good proportion. For those with Ichabod Crane-skinny wrists, the fit is perfect. One off-putting dimension: the case is relatively thick at 12mm. However, because of the flat ( sapphire ) crystal, polished finish of the case and band and relatively small case diameter, the watch doesn't snag shirt cuffs. The bracelet band is satisfyingly-heavy solid link stainless steel and includes a diver-style extension! The watch is not a diver model, but it is rated water-resistant at 200 meters, and has a screw-down crown. The lugs are 20mm apart and the bracelet is of constant width ( it doesn't narrow toward the clasp ) so the whole thing has an enhanced presence on the wrist and the watch sits comfortably and with stability. The caseback contains another crystal so that the ETA mechanical movement may be viewed.
My particular example ran about +5/+6 seconds per day out of the box. In a couple of weeks it has settled to approximately +3.5 seconds per day. The day/date wheels snap over about five minutes before midnight. As on many dress-style watches, the luminous material is all-night usable only on the hour and minute hands, while the hour markers fade quickly. In short, this is a very,very good watch that promises to be as hassle-free and durable as a mechanical movement can be. It looks better on the wrist than its pictures might lead you to believe.
Tissot watches seem to fly below the radar. There aren't too many reviews of these watches to be found online, and I don't see much discussion on watch forums. Perhaps because of their conservative styling, they just don't get much attention. This is a shame, because if my mechanical PRC200 is any example of the type, then these watches give great value for the price ( especially if purchased at discount from a reputable dealer ). Perhaps evidence of the highest praise for Tissot mechanicals is to be found in the fact that there are websites advertizing "replica" ( FAKE ) Tissot watches! This model PRC200 is an unsung hero among mechanical watches: accurate, possessing features of all the "great" automatic timepieces ( quality Swiss movement with day/date complication, high-grade stainless steel case and solid-link band, sapphire crystal and screw-down crown ) and understated elegant styling that will look as good in 40 years as it does now.
