While lady-like and athletic are the best descriptors for the Tissot PR100 Sport Chic watches, a thorough inspection would also give the impression of a modern yet timeless design, which are worth noting if the watches are intended to be kept in rotation.

Followers of Tissot would find the PR100 Sport Chic familiar as the design cues do not stray away from former dressier watches from the brand. The variety of options is a welcome attraction, subtle as the changes may be, as each still offer a different peek into classy, whether it be through the glimmer of the diamond indices, the mesmerizing mother-of-pearl or the very fashionable and feminine rose gold bracelet. The timepiece is proof that durability doesn’t always have to be implied with a rugged design; in its case, it is undoubtedly feminine but delicate would not even cross your mind. Its dial is clear and legible even in dim surroundings, no small thanks to its luminescent hands and indices. The End-of-Life feature is a handy indicator preventing a user from not anticipating battery depletion.
The PR100 Sport Chic has a moderate water resistance capacity of 100 meters, although one would not want to subject this beauty to too much moisture and water. As with other PR100 models, the crown is not screwed in. The case doesn’t feel securely attached on the back and the finish does not exactly say premium, although this is justifiable for its price point.
