Watch brands have quickly taken notice of the fact that the NATO style is a stable in the lookbook of men’s watches. Tissot for its part has fashioned a constellation of such looks from luxury to sport. Enter Tissot’s Quickster Chrono Soccer. Robust and refined, rugged and renaissance; this watch has been spotted on the wrists of a who’s who of sports elite and wannabes alike.
While it may be difficult to track one down in a Tissot boutique, the limited edition comes in various colors for its rubber strap. It also boasts a stainless steel case, sapphire crystal, and variants that include a green ring around the dial or a black on black motif. This stunner of a chronograph is water resistant up to 100 meters, has a rugged build and transitions well from the field to the office.
The Quickster was originally conceived for the 2014 World Cup. But some years later, the watch has transcended the excitement of the championship games that have come and gone. And now it’s taken on a life all of its own. This is a feather in the cap of Tissot, who’ve faltered occasionally with its Sport collection. But the Quickster is bold in all the right places.
Old school chronograph, traditional Swiss fabrication, robust mechanics and classy overall appearance make it as versatile as you’re going to get when choosing something to put on your wrist. It retails for $339 on Amazon and keeps you reasonably out of the red.
