This Tissot is not a model that I was looking to buy. But when a killer deal is in front of me I'm willing to buy and enjoy it for a while. If I am bored with it in a few months I will be able to sell it used for a bit more than what I paid new. Cheap entertainment. I am honestly not sure if this watch suits me or not so it is probably not a long term keeper. The offset dials are interesting. It is typical Tissot quality, a bit chunky. I wonder if this is a 2824 movement with extra module on top to achieve the offsets. That would account for the somewhat thick case. Extra weight and size rarely bother me.

The blue tint around the bezel is reflection, not the watch. Since my Canon G10 died and I replaced it with a G11 I have not been happy with color reproduction in my light tent. I've been playing with different bulbs types and camera settings and haven't found the right combo yet. Maybe I need to find a used G10.

Nice looking watch and for the price point hard to beat. Good purchase as far I can tell Mike.

Nice one!

If I may offer a suggestion: I think it could use a nice tan strap to make it look more "devil may care" sort of lively, but that's just me being the grump that I usually am.

You're correct about the movement- it is indeed a 2824-2, with a fairly simple module for the off-centre configuration.

I like it. I was on the fence, hopefully it comes up again.

Came so close to getting one while they were on sale. No I am really hating my failure to buy.

Damn, that's nice.

I've seen that model in the wild and it's sharp, man. I don't know what you got it for - I'm assuming it was some sort of July 4 sale? - but if you got what I'd call a "it was so cheap I just had to" type of impulse buy, what the hey. Life's short.

Thanks for all the comments and info. The movement info is great. Thanks, Foghorn.

I will keep it on the bracelet. I always prefer a bracelet over any kind of strap. Straps are less comfortable to me. Only half my many watches are on bracelet but I probably choose a bracelet one about 5 or 6 days a week.

My wife used to have a small liquidation business, mostly selling Costco customer returns. She used to sell near new watches, mostly Tissot, Omega, Invicta, Tag Heuer, Raymond Weil, Citizen, Seiko, Movado. Most of my collection came that way. I still get something from her old supplier from time to time and this is one of those that he offered me for a silly price. We have debated restarting the business but online fraud is terrible. We used to sell primarily on ebay and there is now zero seller protection there. Seller can have a signed receipt for a Fedex package and ebay would still give the buyer his money back if he simply said he never got the package. Buyer is always right.

It's the same one I have - got it from Joma and thought the price was too good to pass. I was only mildly pleased at the design first but it's growing on me (in particular because a previous small second watch failed on me - a Chinese mushroom that homaged a JLC, but this one is much better quality needless to say with ETA)

My local Tissot boutique guy said this model had been discontinued (and that might be the reason for such good prices)
