    Just in. I assume it fits HAQ criteria

    I've watched this one for a year or so but not a lot of reviews. I was always of the mind that all quartz were "high accuracy" but WTH-these are selling for short money and it comes with a COSC cert.
    Looks good and feels good. I'll check in a month and see how accurate it's is trending. Right now I'm just enjoying it, no questions asked.

    Re: Just in. I assume it fits HAQ criteria

    They're selling for cheap because they were discontinued by Tissot, for whatever reason, some months ago. I believe this means the only mens' HAQ (or at least near HAQ) watches are Longines VHP and Certina. I think there might be some Tissot ladies' models, but AFAIK, that's it. Nothing from Rado, Hamilton, Tissot or Mido. Plenty of quartz models. IMO, plenty of models that *should* use an HAQ...basically every Rado quartz, for example. Then again. Rado makes me scream, as they say NOTHING about the movement, on the product page for most models, as far as I've seen.

    But yeah. I'd say that's a very bland dial and hands set, but it's eminently readable. Accuracy should be entirely sufficient to not need adjustment between time changes., unless you're particularly picky. At the prices I've seen...can't argue with it.

    if I had a few hundred USD free, I would get one and test it for a few years.

    It is a nice looking Tissot.

    I like it. Classy and legible. I just received a Certina DS-2 with the ETA Caliber F06.411. $180.00 seemed like a good deal.

    There still is one interesting HAQ that is reasonably priced. It's a JDM Seiko watch but it's pretty easy to get. Its the Seiko Dolce Quartz SACM171. Check it out, accurate within 10s/year. Price is $478.

    The 171 is gorgeous, to be sure...but it's also tiny. 33.5 mm case, 39 mm L2L. Something to note.

    The PR100 quartz COSCs...Jomashop has a Buy It Now up on eBay for about 190. Lot easier to take the flyer. :)

    That's from that part of the Swatch group. The f07.411 pops in other watches like an Audi Sport Diver and at least three different models(K2G2G14X, CD, 4C) from Swatch Calvin Klein watches.

    Those model numbers are invalid on the CK site. On the watches generally, there's no info WRT the movement. None of the 3 handers are at a price point that suggests a 411. Got some links?
