The T033.410.16.013.00 meets the needs of people who want a watch that is simply a watch, and has no complications that will detract from this function. However, being a Tissot watch, the T033.410.16.013.00 is not just a watch but also a fashion accessory that will go with any outfit you wear and can be worn virtually anywhere, from the most formal occasion to casual get-togethers with friends and family. The watch features a stainless-steel case and a white dial face with silver hands and Roman numeral time markers to give it a touch of elegance. In addition, the dial also features a date window at the three o’clock position that displays the current date. The watch face is protected with a sapphire crystal that resists scratches and other damage. In addition, the watch is water-resistant to a depth of 100 feet (30 meters), which means that it can resist short periods of immersion in water or splashes, but should not be used in swimming or while bathing. Buyers who want a watch they can wear while buying should get one that is at least 330 feet (100 meters), which is rated appropriate for swimming or snorkeling, or 500 feet (150 meters) which makes the watch appropriate for use during scuba diving.
Like all Tissot watches, the T033.410.16.013.00 features a Swiss quartz movement that tells time using an oscillating quartz crystal that vibrates at a rate of 32,000 per second. As a result of this oscillation, the watch tells extremely accurate time. You can tell if an analog watch features a quartz movement if the second hand gives off a tick-tick sound while it makes its way around the dial, unlike a traditional mechanical watch whose second hand moves smoothly around the dial.The watch features a brown synthetic leather strap with a metal deployment clasp. The deployment clasp is the most common type of fastening found on watch straps, and is made up of two pieces of metal that clip together under another piece of metal that conceals the workings. Its main advantage is that it is easier to open and close compared with other types of clasp and feels more comfortable than the buckle that is used in flexible watch straps.
- This is an elegant, stylish watch with no additional complications.
- The T033.410.16.013.00 also makes a great fashion accessory.
- The sheer simplicity and lack of features of the watch might make it unattractive to many buyers who expect more complications.
The Tissot T-Classic is a watch line for those who appreciate tradition and classic workmanship. After all, not everybody wants a watch that has a lot of complications. Some people simply want a timepiece that will tell the time while still looking stylish. For those people, the T-Classic line represents a must-purchase. The watches in this line hark back to the earliest models made in the late nineteenth century by the company’s founders, Charles-Felicien Tissot and Charles-Emile Tissot, when timepieces were made by hand and carefully crafted by skilled watchmakers. These days, Tissot watches may be made with more advanced methods, but they still reflect the high level of craftsmanship associated with the Tissot name.
