This Tissot Tradition Classic Chronograph is an exceptionally beautiful and versatile model with its great combination of rose gold case finish and a comfortable brown leather strap made of calfskin.

On the outside, this Tissot Tradition Classic Chronograph T0636173603700 is designed with a rose gold-plated stainless steel case with a fixed rose gold-plated bezel, while on the inside, it has arabic numeral mark at the 12 o’clock position and minute markers around the outer rim with the date display located between the 4 and 5 o’clock positions. As for the chronograph function, there are three sub-dials displaying 30-minute, 1/10-second and continuous seconds. It also has a solid caseback.

However, its 30m water resistance means that it is not designed to be submerged in water for a prolonged time. It can only withstand a brief exposure to water. On the other hand,  this watch  comes with a scratch resistant sapphire crystal so you can be assured that its timeless and classic design will stay shiny for a long, long time.

“I love it. It looks like a million bucks. The strap feels nice. Its not too heavy.”

“I am very happy wit this watch. It’s great, classy and not so pricey. I would definitely recommend it anyone.”

The watch is beautiful, but the band is quite stiff at first. Have to work it in for it to fit nicely.
