Review Summary:

Ask any man and they would most likely admit that they have a hidden desire to become a race car driver. This fantasy is what lies at the heart of the appeal of the Tissot T-Race line. Inspired by its partnership with NASCAR, the T-Race line features a racing-inspired design that will have wearers daydreaming that they are behind the wheel of a racecar. And since the T-Race line, like all Tissot watches, have a Swiss quartz movement that tells extremely accurate and precise time.

One of the most popular T-Race models is the T048.417.27.057.00 Black Chronograph Dial. Black is one of the most elegant colors for a watch and ensures that it can be worn at virtually any occasion, from informal get-togethers to the most formal parties, as well as with almost any wardrobe. The watch also boasts of a high level of functionality with the inclusion of a handy chronograph for the sports-minded man. And every T-Race watch is tough since they are designed to be worn during sports activities. Whether your sport is basketball, tennis, swimming or baseball, you can wear your T-Race without being concerned that your watch will sustain damage. And even if sports are not your thing, you will still want to have this T-Race since it is an invaluable fashion accessory that greatly accentuates whatever you’re wearing, and can be worn to the office or to your next date.

The T048.417.27.057.00 features an oversized dial with a black face and Roman numerals at the 12, 9 and 6 position rendered in a modern typeface. Reading the time is easy with the Silvertone luminescent hands that contrast with the ebony dial face. In addition there is a date window at the three o’clock position that displays the current date of the month. The watch also features a black rubber strap with a secure fold-over clasp that has a double push-button safety feature to prevent it from accidentally popping open. For added durability, the case is made of stainless steel that also has a fixed bezel. The watch is also suitable for use while swimming and bathing since it is water-resistant to a depth of 330 feet (100 meters).

The dial features three sub-dials that are used to display the readings of the chronograph and measure elapsed time in 30-minute, 60-second and 1/10th-of-a-second intervals. The chronograph is operating using a stop/start and reset button as well as by pulling out the crown. The chronograph has two functions. The ADD feature allows users to measure the elapsed time of several consecutive events without having to reset the watch in between readings. Every time a new measurement is made, the elapsed time is added to the previous total. The Split/Time feature allows users to stop the watch to make an intermediate reading of elapsed time without having to stop the timer. When the watch is restarted, the hands move forward to reflect the current elapsed time.

Pros:

  • Elegant fashionable watch with a durable case.
  • Useful, easy-to-operate chronograph.
  • Quartz movement ensures accurate time.

Cons:

  • Rubber strap is purely functional and the wearer may want to replace it with a metal band to make it more fashionable.
