    NEW MOVEMENT - TISSOT - ETA C01.211

    This new calibre from Tissot will appear in the Tissot PRC 200 Lady Automatic Chronograph and the Tissot Couturier Automatic Chronograph.

    Calibre ETA C01.211
    31mm x 8.44 mm - 13 1/4 lignes
    184 parts
    15 jewels
    46-hour power reserve
    3hz frequency
    high performance synthetic escapement



    In my opinion this new movement opens a whole new world of possibilities!

    Not just the PRC200 Ladies, but all the new auto chrono PRC200's.

    Also, the big selling point is that it'll be exclusive to Tissot, meaning supply should be able to meet demand worldwide.

    The only downside I see is that there is no day/date. These models (Couturier) will still house a Valjoux 7750.

    Swatch is also using it in their models.
    Just imagine: they offer auto chrono
    with saphire for about 350...

    Anyone considering this movement should be aware that this one has quite a few plastic parts. Both tissot and swatch were a bit concerned about this and this is the reason why you can't see full movement at the case back. I guess they didn't want folks to panic...

    I personally have no problems if non critical parts are made out of plastic because todays plastic has quite a few advantages over metal.

    Still, I'd advise resarching this movement before pulling a trigger.

    Cheers
