The only "real" watch I have is a Swiss Army quartz chrono, steel band which I bought brand new almost three years ago at a watch shop in Santa Monica, CA.
This is my very post. I've enjoyed watches all my life, but recently became obsessed. It's only recently that I've learned a lot of the basics. I've got a lot of great information reading these forums.
I ended up buying three watches via three different sellers on Amazon. I received them this week, all Tissot automatics: 1) PRS516, black face, brown leather strap 2) PR50, silver face, and 3) PR50, silver face, for my girlfriend.
I LOVE THESE THINGS!
However, on the both PR50 watches, the Tissot story book that came packaged with the watches are written in languages other than English, one is in Spanish, while the other is Russian. Only the PRS-516 watch came with a story book that came in English.
Does anyone here know whether I may have gotten a gray market watch? Or perhaps even in a counterfeit? I'm dying to know. Perhaps I shouldn't buy online via Amazon in the future?
