I Tried On Even More Watches

Just going to a jewelry store is a great adventure for any watch enthusiast, and seeing a watch in the steel (or titanium) can change one’s whole perspective on a watch. And boy do I have an adventure for you.

The main story here is the PRX, a watch I never loved, but I mainly thought it was overrated, I never really hated it. I got to try on three, the 40 millimeter automatic, the 35 millimeter quartz, and the automatic chronograph. I’ll start with the one I liked the least, the chronograph, hit was just too thick for my wrist and in my opinion date windows don’t look great on chronograph watches. The 35 millimeter quartz was great, I liked how it wore but I’m not in the market for a quartz watch. My favorite was the 40 millimeter automatic watch, the waffle dial looked great in person and I loved how it fit my wrist.

Staying with Tissot, I also tried on the blue Seastar 1000 40mm, my mind didn’t really change on this watch, but it’s always cool to try on any watch. It definitely looks better in person than it does on their website, the blue looks incredible, it felt perfectly weighted, and feels nicer than it looks honestly.

Here’s where it get’s almost magical, I got to try on a Tag Heuer Aquaracer and an Accutron Spaceview, both very luxurious. But if I’m honest the fun part was the experience of trying them on, I am definitely not into these watches, the Spaceview was interesting to say the least.

I was lucky to be helped by a salesperson who really knew stuff about watches, and they were probably half of the reason I changed my mind on the Tissot PRX 80, I am so lucky to have the opportunity to try on watches, and something tells me there’s going to be more soon…
