Just returned a watch I didn't like. No problem at all. They are good in my eyes.

Looks like a good deal. Can any of the watch experts comment?
Not an expert, but I'll share my experience with Tissot. I picked up a PRS 516 about 2 years ago. A year into ownership, it began to run fast. Abnormally fast, as in 5 minutes a week. Online research said it was somehow magnetized, so I purchased a de-magnetizer. It slowed the rate of increase but it's still there. The watch now sits in my case and I've gone back to my g-shock for daily wear (solar atomic). I won't buy another Tissot and will look for something better, albeit at a higher cost.

Have you tried taking it to a watchmaker? Might be easy and inexpensive to get fixed. For what it's worth, I have a 5-year old Tissot Le Locle that I also got at Jomashop and have no issues with it.

I did, and he wanted a ridiculous amount just to break into it and diagnose the issue. I just checked my jomashop info and my 2 year warranty is up next month. Gotta get the ball rolling asap... Glad this deal came up, or I would've completely missed out.

The good thing about this watch is it's a nice watch as long as it ticks; the crystal will outlast the movement. When it quits, it'll be a $300 paperweight because it won't be worth fixing.

Before any of you jump on this watch, I'd like to make a point that the design of this watch makes no sense.

Main problem is markings III, VI, IX and XII on the edge of the dial. I will explain why. This is a Regulatour model, which means that hours are tracked with tiny hand on top small sub-dial (which is correctly marked 3, 6,9 and 12) and minutes are tracked with large hand. If we track minutes on the outer scale, then it should have markers 15, 30, 45 and 60 for minutes.

This watch has incorrect hour markers (III, VI, IX and XII) where it should have minute markers (15, 30, 45 and 60), which looks silly when you look closer.

Her's the link proper Regulateur watch, compare it to Tissot to see my point:

https://www.hodinkee.com/articles...e-hands-on

In addition, the dial mixes up Roman and Arabic numerals, which is odd to see on the same dial. Some makers do similar mix, so probably not as big of a deal as incorrect markers for minutes scale.

These two flaws make this watch dead wrong. Sure it looks nice, but only until you look closer and start thinking about what you see.

This is probably main reason why it is discounted so heavily!

I can't believe Tissot released this watch out with such major flaws!!!!

These are fantastic points that most miss out on. Analogous to when a dive watch has a bezel that doesn't illuminate or doesn't have individual minute hashes for the first 10 minutes. Watch designs come with a lot of history and purpose, and the oversight on this Tissot model are likely the reason it's cheap. Good catch

This is proper Regulateur from IWC:

https://www.chrono24.co.uk/iwc/po...1.htm#gref

- Correct outer minute scale,
- Only Arabic numbers are used (no mixing with Roman numerals).

Price does not matter here, IWC link was provided to illustrate how correct dial should look like.

Price of Tissot watch will not change if they make dial without mistakes.

Different strokes. I'm not a big fan of that complication and typically even prefer no date. I usually don't have any issue remembering what day of the week it is as I work a Monday to Friday. Maybe I'll forget the date, but prefer a less cluttered dial over having to check somewhere else on that. I feel like so many watches could implement the date better.

First off, I would never buy a regulateur watch. They just seems silly. Secondly, Tissot just made a nonsensical decision to put hour numbers on the outside of a watch that has no outer hour hand. I love my Tissot watch, but wouldn't take this watch for free.
