Tissot Gents T-Classic Le Locle Automatic Watch Reference T41.1.483.53 - Uncomplicated And Classy

This is the watch that I got from Switzerland in February 2011. The Tissot Gents T-Classic Le Locle Automatic Watch has a nice classic look to it. It has a stainless steel case, grey-tone stainless steel bracelet with black dial with roman numerals.



Date calendar display at 3 o'clock position. Scratch resistant sapphire crystal covering the 39.3 mm case. The rounded edges gives it a very vintage feel to the watch. As you can see from the photo above, lume treatment is not provided.

This watch is also very thin at just 9.75 mm thick. Powered by the ETA 2824-2 automatic movement, this caliber allows winding as well and second-hand stop hacking capabilities. The main springs can last up to 40 hours on a full wind.


The crown is a simple pull-out version hence the water resistant of this watch is only rated to 30 meters. The letter "T" is embossed on the top of the crown.



This watch comes with a unique display case-back. A clip-on domed stainless steel cover with two semi-circle windows cut into it is what comes with this watch. On it, some interesting graphics are sand-blasted including information about the watch. The Tissot brand and the year are etched on it. The glass used is also sapphire crystal, similar to the front.


The lug width of this watch is 20 mm and the bracelet that comes standard is a tooth-linked type with a butterfly clasp at the end. The bracelet tapers from 20 mm at the lugs to just 16 mm at the clasp.


Overall weight of the watch is approximately 123 g.



The size of the watch is just nice for those with wrist size 7.5 inch in circumference like I do. It is light and looks well in an office as well as formal situations. It is uncomplicated and classy.

If only there's some lume provided and this watch could be deemed perfect.
