While I perusing the ol’ WristWatchReview, the Amazon widget (yeah, that one over there on the right) caught my eye, and I kept an eye on what was scrolling through. The Tissot PRC200 that came up caught my eye, and here we are at today’s post.
This particular watch is part of Tissot’s T-Sport line (ref T17.1.526.52), and has a chronograph feature as it’s main draw. One thing that I found of interest with this watch is that all of the hands used to indicate timing while using the chronograph are in yellow. So, in this case, the yellow is more than a simple accent – it actually makes it easier for you to pick out the indicators you need.
Past that, you have a simple black and white color scheme (and yes, I wish the date display was reversed) keeping things clean and easy to read. Under that dial you have a Tissot quartz movement (G10.211) keeping all the hands in sync; this is all wrapped in a 40mm stainless steel case (12mm thick).
Add in the sapphire crystal and screw-down crown, it’s easy to see why this watch is rated at 200m for water resistance. With this all on a leather strap, this is a watch that could easily pass as a dress watch, but still hold up as a daily wearer. If the black dial and leather strap isn’t to your tastes, they do offer it in other variation.
This particular one, however, is where Amazon is offering the deal. MSRP for this model is at $450, but Amazon currently has it going for $277. At that price, I feel confident to say we’ve got an entry on the higher-end for the affordable chronographs we’ve looked at lately.
