This Tissot PR50 from the Tradition range is proof that good Swiss watches do not need to cost a fortune.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the supplied warranty card we can date this watch to being sold in August 2006. We also have the credit card receipt for the same jewelers and on the same day. We do not have the instruction book, or box, but we do have the Tissot pouch.
Not every watch needs to be complicated. Lots of people like a simple, grab and go timepiece that still looks and feels good, and that is exactly what this Tissot PR50 Tradition does. To achieve this it without looking cheap you need to use good materials, so for both the case and bracelet Tissot chose stainless steel rather than cheaper chrome plating. More impressively at this price point is the use of sapphire crystal, a highly scratch resistant material instead of glass or plastic. Similarly the dial would be easier and cheaper to make if it were completely smooth with printed detail, but Tissot have used applied hour markers and the dial has a very fine circular pattern that helps it catch the light. The condition of this watch is very good, and the ETA quartz movement has a new battery fitted. The bracelet is still a good length but may have had one link removed that we don’t have. A new Tissot Tradition can still be bought here for £270, which makes this one look even better value for money.
This watch will be supplied with a Tissot velvet pouch, papers and our Certificate of Authenticity.
