Hands on Review – Tissot T Classic Tradition Chronograph Silver Dial Mens Watch
Men who are looking for a good buy should choose the T063.617.16.037.00, a stylish model that also boasts of a high level of functionality. Wearing the T063.617.16.037.00, you understand that you are wearing a watch and not a compass, stop watch or other device. The watch features the Quartz movement that can be found in every Tissot watch and which ensures that it is telling the most accurate time. The watch itself features an oversized dial and chunky case made of stainless steel, which has a window made of thick sapphire crystal that resists scratches and other damage. The strap is made of brown calfskin, which feels comfortable against the skin and has a simple metal deployment clasp.
The dial face is silver, with the time markers and watch hands set off in a deeper silver color. The dial also features a date window between the four o’clock and five o’clock position that displays the current date. In addition, the dial features three sub-dials that are used with the chronograph function and display elapsed time in 1/10th of a second, 30-minutes and 60-seconds.Using the chronograph is easy, since it is controlled by pulling out the crown and using the two push buttons that start/stop the chronograph and reset it. The chronograph boasts of two features. The ADD feature allows users to measure the elapsed time of several consecutive events without having to reset the watch in between readings. After every measurement, the elapsed time is added to the total. The Split/Time function allows you to pause the watch in order to get an intermediate time reading without stopping the timer. Once the reading has been taken and the watch restarted, the hands move forward until they reach the current elapsed time. However, the watch is only resistant to 30 meters (100 feet) meaning that it can withstand brief exposure to water but should not be submerged since it is not rated for use in swimming or bathing.
- Elegant, stylish timepiece is a versatile fashion accessory that can be worn to virtually any occasion, and with any outfit.
- A simple-to-use chronograph with two useful features.
- Comfortable calfskin strap.
- Somewhat pricey for the type of watch you are getting. But think of it as an investment whose value will appreciate through the years, and which can even be passed on as a family heirloom.
