Tissot PR 100 Chronograph
So here we are with part two of the Tissot Trilogy and the Tissot PR 100 Chronograph is the most flamboyant of all my watches and here’s why.
I am not one for flashy watches I like mine a bit more subtle but when I saw this one, I just loved the look so here is my review on what made me purchase this watch.
There is something about a chronograph that always seems to catch my eye and this one is no different with it’s very simple but elegant black dial with the white writing and minute markers it really does stand out.
3 sub dials 30 seconds, 30 minutes and 1/10 of a second counters, ADD & SPLIT functions and a date function between 4 & 5 o’clock.
Silver baton markers look stunning against the black dial and there is even some superluminova on the hands but with this being a chronograph that is not a big issue on any kind of way.
The now famous TISSOT and 1853 sit nicely just below the 12 o’clock as well as the words PR100 and 10 bar to give it a more balanced feel and look.
A 41mm case but it does not wear too big mainly because of the 11mm thickness and lug to lug of 45mm which helps to make it sit nicely on the wrist and I do not think even the smallest of wrists would have any problem wearing it.
The case is protected by scratch resistant sapphire with a fixed polished bezel against, the finishing is something that Tissot really do very well and elevates the look so much.
The pushers are designed so well long along with the crown which has two functions, the first pull sets the date and to set the time pull out to the second position.
The crawn also has the “T” engraved on it which is also a nice touch.
Honestly, part of the reason I added this watch to my collection was the bracelet a stainless-steel shark mesh it really does elevate the look in my opinion.
20mm lug to lug there are plenty of options if the mesh bracelet is not to your liking and with a standard clasp and safety once on your wrist this watch is not going anywhere.
A Swiss quartz movement with 4 jewels but again Tissot have the option of automatic which are powered by the Powermatic 80.
The Tissot PR 100 Chronograph is without doubt the most unique piece in my collection not because of the dial but because of the mesh bracelet.
I really love the look and while this will not be to everyone’s taste you really can wear this watch on most occasions whether you are going more casual or going to a more dressed up event.
There are many options from dial colour to strap type and if the movement is important to you then there is an automatic version for you also, why not check out the options Tissot PR 100 Chronograph
