Top Customer Reviews
For starters I am neither a watch snob, nor a watch aficianado. This is the most I have ever spent on a watch; but I must say I feel like I got my money's worth.
I really liked the watch upon first seeing it on Amazon. I liked the sporty look at first glance. Went to a couple of "authorized" brick and mortar stores to see it in person. But the store price was SIGNIFICANTLY higher than Amazon...about $300 more.
So, to start, the look of the watch is my favorite part. The rubber band is very simple, yet seems very sturdy and durable. I like that the band is plain, rather that having some gaudy logo on it (like on some of the Tags). As mentioned in other posts, you will have to cut the band to fit, unless it just happens to fit out of the box. Personally, i think making the cut is very easy. a sharp pair of scissors are all that's needed. There is also a micro adjust to get it just right.
The clasp feels well made. Simple, yet solid and functional. The letter T is stamped on the clasp...a nice touch I think.
The watch has a nice size. Big but not too big. It feels masculine and heavy. The build quality is quite solid. The case is thick at 15mm.
The face is simple and functional. Very stylish and sporty. The movement is smooth, and the window on the back lets you see it in action. The Chronograph works as it should. The button to reset the chrono seems a bit heavy. Seems to take a little more pressure than normal. But not a huge deal for
me. It still works and functions perfectly.
I am a bit disappointed with the "luminous" hands. Actually, the near absence of luminescence is the real disappointment for me. The glow is so dim, that it is nearly impossible to see. Again, not a huge deal for me, as I'm not looking at my watch in the dark very often.
In conclusion I feel this watch is at a reasonable price point. To find a quality Swiss automatic Chronograph for less than $600 is very nice, despite some of the misgivings I just mentioned. That's cheaper than a "quartz" Tag F1. And I believe this watch to be of equal or better quality than the Tags in this price range. And this is automatic...no batteries to mess with. Ever.
But...I expected alot more from this prestigious Swiss watch brand. I found myself being EXTREMELY disapointed in the luminosity used on the hands and hour markers which was practically non existent making the watch unreadable in low light to extremely dark conditions. The rubber strap requires you to cut it down to size and with only a couple of micro-adjustments on the clasp it leaves no room for minor swelling or weight fluctuations.
The band is very easy to adjust but if you place the Tissot logo dead center of the bottom of your wrist, the watch will rotate off center due to the curved metal band clasp....not sure why, but my Tag does not do that. Once it rotates it pinches... Not comfortable.
The watch is heavy and thick, but not uncomfortable. The overall design is very nice, but it is definitely one of the thickest auto watches I have owed.
I will be contacting Amazon regarding the rattle.
