its 100% this is a fake prc200... if you look at the headline is writes "TISSOT™" but it has to write TISSOT they are adding tm for selling them at ebay... but this is fake watch... there are even genuine watches from honkong but they still cost around 300$....
if you had left feedback to seller than what recourse do you have on ebay after you discovered is fake?
you can directly open a dispute at paypal and say that this is a fake item... you will get your money back :)
I opened a dispute on Ebay (goes to paypal site).
I claimed that watch was fake. The biggest clue for me was the quality of lume was very poor even after full charge under light. Barely legible and doesn't last more than 10 minutes. In the photos I have seen the lume looks decent.
I have found this on Princejewellerywatch.com
"Prince Jewellery & Watch Company only operates in Hong Kong and does not sell or hold any auctions on websites. Furthermore, we have not opened any shops in china under Prince Jewellery & Watch Company. Customers should be aware of fraudulent websites, companies and activities purported to be under the name of "Prince Jewellery and Watch Company" outside Hong Kong."
My watch was shipped from Singapore.
Prince doesn't sell on ebay.
2 Further indications its not a legitimate watch.
The seller responded to claim by giving fake testimonials.
I've escalated the claim to paypal to resolve.
Waiting for the outcome....
Paypal doesn't give money back unless you send the watch back in original condition including all packaging. So you have to determine watch is fake before removing plastic wrapping.
In order to get refund you need to send the watch back to china:
After careful review, we have determined that you are eligible for a refund. To qualify for this refund, please ship the items whose claims were granted back to the seller in their original condition and keep your tracking information. You are responsible for shipping and handling costs.
Please mail to:1109 ,5 dong ,bei 5 qu ,huiqiao xincheng ,baiyun qu ,guangzhou ,China, guangzhou, 广东省 510410 China
Strange since was listed as from Singapore but shipped from Hong Kong..nwo want to send back to china.
What was the name of your seller, i had problem with a seller from china who claimed the watch was original but was in fact a fake, poor naïve me, luckily freinds of mine baddly wanted the watches knowing they were fakes... so i sold them the watches without loosing any money sending the watches back , they came from the same city, seller lijunjun123321.
A few weeks after, i bought myself a real Tissot at a jewellery store in my area and i'm really not disapointed of my decision!
I am a authorized Tissot reseller from Hongkong. I know it is not surprising to find fake Tissot watches on Ebay for bargaining price. Most of these fake watches, of course, made in China with or without using the genuine Tissot parts.
So if you really want to have confidence on what you get from online sellers, ask them if the watch has warranty worldwide.
If they say the warranty is worldwide, then you may bring it the nearest service center and claim the watch is malfunction or something and tell them you bought it just a month ago.
Then technicians will help you look into it as you have the international warranty card. After some days, they will call you.
1. If they tell it has no problem at all, then it must be authentic one,
2. If they tell it is a non-authentic one, the best way is to dispute on paypal (if you buy from Ebay using paypal). If 100 fake watches have been spotted and refunded, counterfeiters will lose quite a lot.
What if 1000, 10000 to be spotted? The whole industry will be less profitable and goes down.
Don't hesitate to help fight pirates, they are now making fake Casio, Seiko and other low end brands. People just kept coming in to my shop to ask if the Casio they bought online is authentic or not. The sad thing is some of them are fake and my business is totally in danger due to this cheap crap replica.
Therefore, go to service centers for authenticity check. AD is not really reliable if they are not really into the business.
Make the world better by one more step. Thanks all.

Thanks for posting that. I empathize with your plight.
Hong Kong is a world-class city, but unfortunately, is located in China. Thus many reputable Hong Kong sellers must suffer consumer suspicion because of the doings of their unscrupulous low-class neighbors further inland.
I would only like to encourage my fellow WUSs to be discerning in separating the wheat from the chaff.
I myself would not buy ANY name brand originating from China, and expect it to be "original".
One would have to be pretty dimwitted to believe that to begin with.
But Hong Kong (and Singapore and Taipei too) are a whole different matter: those are world-class cities, with the same proportion of honest REAL sellers as anywhere else. Who would be so idiotic as to generalize about all sellers in Los Angeles or Chicago after having one bad experience? No one!
A-hole sellers exist everywhere, but when buying watches, I think it is important to consider the ECONOMIC system of distribution as well as production of the CITY from which the item is offered for sale. Singapore, for example, is one of the biggest distribution centers in the world. Some of you know Luke from Timeparadise. I've bought a lot from him (Hammys, Seikos, etc), and ALL their stuff is authentic. A little "gray" but authentic. Taipei - where I do a lot of business - has some of the most knowledgeable watch connoisseurs this side of Rhone Valley. When J. LeCoultre makes a special edition of 50, they reserve 2-3 for the Taipei market alone.
Who doesn't like a bargain? But we all know deep down: "When something sounds too good to be true, it is."
Good luck y'all! :)
