So long story short I purchased this tissot prc200 and had it alittle while then as usual wasn't for me so passed it on , after it arrived the buyer was convinced it was a lemon ( fake ) so with no problem with this I told him to send it back for a refund

The buyer said the dial wasn't right and he hadn't opened the back but was sure it was sold with good intention but was defiantly a fake

After looking at the watch at opening up the back it was fitted with a g10 eta movement and apart from in my opinion a slacking in manufacturing quality with the dial it looked OK to , I would love to see what you guys think

its not a fake Andy, there are fake ones out there but they are very obvious and the only accurate ones are not chronographs, i suspect a bit of buyers remorse is involved here as these look good in pictures but tend to be a bit of a let down on the wrist IMO plus i doubt the fakers would use an ETA G10

This is what I thought but to be fair I thought it was cheap selling it at £85 this is a pic with back off

its definitely real Andy, i must admit though....i dont like the eta g10, not serviceable or repairable which is terrible for a swiss movement, these are even fitted to some Tags as well Crying or Very sad

Yep I agree the movements seem to be throw away and replace rather than fix

if you send a Tissot chrono back to tissot under warranty they dont just swap the movement, they just swap out the whole dial hands and movement, 2 minute job compared to 20 minutes, terrible waste
