Thread: The other new Tissot in the house.

  1. #1

    The other new Tissot in the house.

    The reason we went to the AD in the first place actually. My wife's birthday Tissot. It is the 33 mm Luxury model with Mother of Pearl dial, 50m WR.





    Here is the dial with the case actually looking like the steel that it is:



    One of the things that I really like about Tissot is that they take advantage of what makes they affordable, mechanisation, and use it to step up from their competition. Whether it is the chapter ring on the dial of the Luxury or the case detailing, the Tissots often look like they cost more.



    The finish of the bracelet on this model is nicer than it is on the PRC-200. It is quite clear that this is a better Tissot. Here are the two together.




    This is a steel watch, it only looks champagne in the pictures because of the forest fire sky:

    That's a nice looking watch! I like those nearly flush markers on the brushed outer ring. The case design is excellent, too. I hope she enjoys it!

    I have a Tissot V8, a quartz chronograph, I absolutely love. You are certainly right about how Tissots are far more luxurious than they get credit for;very under-appreciated. Tissot makes some wonderful watches, and the similar Carson Powermatics keep catching my eye from time to time. You've got a coupla nice watches there. Congrats!

    Congrats! Nice looking watch, Henry. Love your wife Tissot as well. What you say is true, they have great details for their price range.

    Oh! And I love what you did with your back yard
