    Family complete! - Tissot Heritage PR516 GL

    I was able to purchase the last piece from WUS member hrasco185, thanks man!

    With the arrival of the black variant on black leather strap with deployant, the foursome is complete!


    On stock OEM straps:





    On 3rd party straps:





    The silver on Hirsch Modena golden brown, the Tissot deployant fits perfectly:








    The blue on a porous racer strap with blue stitching:





    The black on a Nato strap:






    The gold variant on a Nato Heritage with matching gold hardware:




    My past posts when I got the previous 3 models below:


    It was love at first sight when I saw this baby, so I got it minutes after I saw it available in our country!


    It's only 40mm. The 20mm lug size bracelet kinda floats above the wrist, not like the usual strap that hugs the wrist (see my last photo). Because of this, it wears a bit bigger. I really love the racer bracelet! The dial is dark blue, hard to get the blue shimmer with indoor lighting.


    Here are the photos, hope you guys like it too!




    Unboxing:










    Dial:







    Profile:











    The bracelet uses the old-style double-hook type clasp:








    Wristshots:










    I haven't seen actual photos of the watch in any other forum, so this will help those considering this piece.






    UPDATE 24 hours later:


    I thought that there was only 1 silver available in the Philippines so I settled for the blue. A forum member form the Philippines posted about seeing another silver one on the losse in one of the local ADs.... so now I got the silver PR 516 GL! I am happy to have 2 of these babies


    Sharing the photos:










    UPDATE:




    I couldn't resist the power of the gold variant as well





    Here are wrist shots of the Gold variant on leather racer strap with deployant:









    And the Trio:

    Update May 28:




    This is a becoming a bad vice - completing a family :D

    Looks like you've got it bad my friend!! lol .........says me with a rather large vintage Tissot collection!!

    I like the design of this model.......already have two of the originals, and several others with the same case design, so may well add one at some point.

    I like all of those, but the black dial on the red black & white Nato really stands out!!

    Enjoy, and wear in good health

    Love them, I´ve been eyeballing this Tissot since I saw it on a mag. This is the first time I see it on "the flesh" and was a little disappointed with the way the bracelet looks on the wrist but the dial surpasses every inicial expectation.
    Thanks to you I´m surfing the web for a specimen of blue shade. Thanks...

    Gee thanks OP I told myself today I have to have one after looking at your pix and walked all over town (must have visited a dozen ADs) just to find this: blue dial with rally bracelet. I never thought this would be a rare model in my neck of the woods. I love it and the watch matches my Lamy pen from the same design era. Just perfect! :D
