The return of a classic legend - the Tissot PRS516

October 2004

Founded in 1853, Tissot is one of the creative leaders of the traditional Swiss watch industry. Renowned for its high level of Swiss craftsmanship and innovative products, the brand has celebrated over 150 years of savoir-faire.
The new Tissot PRS516 (PRS – Particularly Robust and Sporty) is a revised edition of their classic watch from the 1960s that many remember for its highly original strap with punched holes resembling those on a racing car’s steering wheel and on driver’s gloves. The new PRS516 watches, which sport the same style of leather strap and stainless steel bracelet, are an eye-catching quartz chronograph and an elegant three-hand day/date version with an automatic movement, each with its own distinctive, dynamic appearance.
Official Timekeeper for many sports, Tissot continues its role as Innovators by Tradition.
