Tissot PRS 200 Chronograph Mens Watch For Heavy Use With Expensive Look


A timepiece for the practical man who's also aesthetically pleasing.

Swiss manufacturer Tissot keeps real watch lovers on their toes with always something up its sleeve! The Tissot PRS 200 Chronograph Mens Watch, for example; from the T-Sport range. Made for the modern man, it equips him with everything we want to be there in a hi-quality watch! It's every bit sporty and is perfectly suitable for almost every occasion. Home, work or outdoors, you can go swimming with it worry free. On a regular day, you won't cross 600 feet.

The Tissot PRS 200 Chronograph Mens Watch, at first, looks a sophisticated and classy piece; that it bears other traits (precision, robustness, being water-resistant etc.) that inspire its name, come to notice a while later. This flagship of affordable elegance attracts attention just by its presence! A reliable, high-tech operational thrill moulds many of its design features, which are diving-inspired. The unidirectional bezel is first in this regard; the luminous markings next and the practical safety clasp (with its extension) third. In performance and appearance, these share identical high standards.

There's a precise Swiss G10.211 quartz movement inside. It's ETA-built; 131/4th Ligne (29.8 mm) across, 5.12 mm thick (7.4mm from the top of the sweep-second pinion); shows date, runs on 394 watch cells and houses 4 jewels. It is Swiss-assembled, guaranteeing a perfectly accurate timekeeping that will remain unaffected by years, humidity or temperature.

The dial layout comprises three black chronograph sub-dials. The first counter (positioned @ 2 o'clock) displays 1/10th of seconds while the 10 o'clock counter records time for 30 minutes. The third sub-dial is for counting regular seconds, for the large second hand will count the stopwatch-seconds. The hour and minute hands are large and luminous; easily readable in the dark. The date window shifts to 4 from the usual 3 position unlike most Tissot T-Sport watches.

The sleek, round and masculine case of the Tissot Mens Watch measures 42 mm (d), standing at a 12.02 mm thickness. It's solid stainless steel, including the deeply polished bracelet; the rotating bezel with tachymeter scale, engraved elapsed time markings and brushed riders and the lightly engraved case back. That's 140 grams of solidity atop your wrist!

For the high water resistance, Tissot had to throw in a screw-down crown and the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal to make it comply with the demands of outdoor sports. The crystal is immune to everyday wear and tear and gives the Tissot T-Race Chronograph Mens Watch a clean and clear face, which is highly readable and makes the watch appear bigger. It's top brand value without racking your bank account.
