The Swiss luxury watch company Tissot from Le Locle, Switzerland, was established in 1853 by Charles Félicien Tissot and his son Charles-Emile. Under Charles-Emile’s direction, they manufactured pocket watches with parts from Russia and the United States. In 1915, the company began producing wrist watches. Between 1920 and 1977, Tissot produced its own movements. The PR516 has a 36mm stainless steel case that is bezel-less, giving it a sporty profile. A domed crystal protects the blue dial with a white chapter ring featuring Baton markers that are partly raised, allowing the hour hand to move underneath them. A red seconds hand contrasts perfectly with the white hands. A date window sits at the 3 o’clock position. Inside we have an Automatic Tissot Cal.784 21 Jewels 18000 beats per hour. Fitted on its original integrated stainless steel bracelet with signed clasp.
