Thread: Affordable offering from Tissot

  1. #1

    Affordable offering from Tissot

    Saw this piece of news from Monchrome - regarding the launch of a new product from Tissot PRS 516 - an affordable chrono.

    Like everything about it, and relatively good pricing at 1,850.......

    (All pictures from Monochrome)

    Except for its size - 45mm!! Maybe it's a good thing. I can save myself some money.

    (Sorry, but not sure how to link this to the Monochrome web page)

    @ 45mm I'm afraid it's way too much for me. Would rather pay a bit more and get this

    Edit: unfortunately, it seems that this model is only available in a few markets. Sorry.

    Thanks, C.

    I like the non-chrono that you posted for me some months back.....

    I thought they were (still) widely available, but it seems I was wrong. Sorry, again.

    I think it looks quite nice but looks to me like the model in the bottom picture has quite a small wrist making the watch look a bit large in that context.

    I still can't decide if I should go back to the AD that's learing everything out to try on this 42mm one.

    It is just as discreet in real life but far better looking. It is also a fair bit less in Canadian dollars than the one you've posted is in Euros.

    Would you consider "cushion-shaped"? It somehow reminds me of a particular more del from Zenith....

    Hate to be an enabler, Henry, but that is a nice looking watch!I really like the cushion case.

    It's quite smart with the (not too many) red details, and I like the 'suspended' indices and sensibly placed date window; but it doesn't excite me enough to want part with 1300
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    Maybe you might change your mind when you get to see it in person.....
