We reviewed a cutting edge watch made by Tissot, Tissot T-Touch Expert. The watch is full of new innovation. It may define the future watch standard i.e. a watch with a lot of functions. If you do not care about those functions or you only want a stylish chronograph for everyday usage, you should take a look at one of the hottest model for Tissot PRC 200 Chronograph series – T17152652 & T17158652.     

The model code PRC 200 has special meanings. P stands for Precise, R stands for Robust, C stands for classic and 200 means it is 200m water resistant.

Precise

In the PRC 200 series, both quartz and automatic movements are available. For T17152652 & T17158652, it is running quartz movement, the time is extremely accurate and precise. Basically, you don’t need to worry about the time correctness for several months.

For other models (e.g. Tissot T0144271605100 PRC 200) that are running automatic movement, you don’t need to worry about the preciseness as well. Tissot offers a good automatic chronograph movement. Indeed, It is not easy to find a chronograph automatic movement under $1k, However, Tissot is a member of the Swatch Group, a ETA producer. With the volume production and high standard of the movement, Tissot PRC200 automatic chronograph is precise and cheap.

Robust

The stainless steel case is 40mm, the watch is not an oversize chronograph. You can read the information easily as the design of the watch face is simple. The case is 11mm thick. This is excellent as some of you may not be comfortable to wear a large and thick watch every day. The case is solid and robust. The stainless steel case is polished well.

Classic

The watch is a classic chronograph, what I mean classic is that, it is a standard design for a chronograph. Three sub-dials are locating at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock. This design is classic and the vision is balanced. The 3, 6 & 9 Arabic hour indicators really stand out. It makes reading the time is a piece of cake.

Design

The watch is design for every day use, the watch is not too sporty. You can wear it for every occasions. You can wear it to go to work, meeting, or hangout with friends in pubs. Tissot T17152652 is equipped with leather strap while T17158652 is equipped with stainless steel strap. T17158652 is more casual than T17152652 thanks to the stainless steel strap.

There is a tachymeter inside the dial. I think that many people don’t use it or don’t know how to use it, however, It is a nice feature for speed measuring.

Others

The crystal is scratch-free sapphire, it is a standard configuration for a luxury watch. It is tough against scratches for daily use.

The crown is screw down and the rear cover of the watch is strengthened. This design is to allow the watch can work well up to 200m under water.
