    Tissot PRS516 vs Hamilton Jazzmaster Chrono

    Hi all,

    I've been considering a new automatic chrono and have narrowed the choice down to these two watches. From what I can tell they are both similarly sized and priced and both have features I am looking for. I believe they both come under the Swatch brand and should be of equal quality.

    I'd just like to gather people's opinions on each of them really. I am looking both of them with black faces on leather. My only concern with the PRS516 is that Tissot seems to overhaul and redesign this watch every 12 to 18 months. I've done some research on this model and I've found possibly half a dozen differently styled watches produced in the last 5 or 6 years. If I did take the plunge to buy something of this nature I'd hate for them to revise it again in a months time for a model that I would prefer?

    Both are nice, but if it were me, I would go with the Hamilton. Timeless design and great watch for the money.

    You're too late already. Tissot are bringing out a new 516. The advantage is that the current crop is a little neutral - either black or silver with no yellow bits on it. I went for the silver dialed one and expect it to be a little more classic looking if they replace it with the new model. No prizes for guessing that I would go for the Tissot.

    No matter which watch you decide for, a future model might come along that would appeal more to you so I would not put that into consideration. If it was me I would buy the jazzmaster. It has i really nice dial and look amazing on both a bracelet and a leather strap
