Tissot has launched the PRS 516 Extreme Chronograph.
Designed in tribute to Tissot's passion for motorsports, the original PR 516 was a "timekeeping legend" of the 1960s. The 60s model had a bracelet with integrated cut-out circles, reminiscent of a race car steering wheel.
The new Tissot PRS 516 Extreme is inspired by the cars of today. "Its straight case line takes from the smooth and somewhat futuristic bodywork of the ultimate modern car, while the details on the dial and bezel illustrate its sophisticated dashboard," the brand explains.
The watch has a 44 mm case in stainless steel with black PVD, and the dial is black with red or yellow details. It has a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, and a see-through case back.
The Tissot PRS 516 Extreme is powered by the calibre C01.211 automatic movement, with 15 jewels and a power reserve of 45 hours. It comes with a rubber strap.
