All,

I came across this website watchwing.com and they have listed Tissot PRC200 T17.1.586.52 for $128 + shipping.



Couple of questions:

1) Do you any of you have experience with watchwing?

2) Do any of you own the Tissot PRC200 T17.1.586.52? Any thoughts on this?

The price is amazing, but not sure about the website so wanted to check.

Also, wanted your feedback on this Tissot.

Let me know. Thanks in advance!

I think its a replica watch. This retails for around $280 - $300 in all trusted online shops.

For more info on this watch, head over to Tissot forum. There are lot of PRC200 fanboys out there.

That's what I was afraid of. It was too good to be true :(

I will look at the Tissot Forum.

Thanks,

I own a PRC-200 - you will not be disappointed....One of my faves, love it. Not a large watch, on the wrist it looks more 'dressy-sports' than 'sports'. I have the black leather strap. I've had mine for about 4 years, I have never seen it for that cheap though (I think the lowest I have ever seen it was $250 on sale)... i would be cautious.

The PRC-200 is one of Tissot's most popular watches. There are a lot of fakes out there. The extremely low price offered here sends up lots of red flags.

Just by curiosity i went to the site and check their pictures. This one won't be easy to judge by their pictures I think. According to what you can see, it looks legit, but these are just pics and it's easy to post real Prc200 pics and ship a fake one... :think:

... and if I remember something I read from one of those threads on Tissot fakes, a few of them have been so good that even an AD didn't recognize it was fake. I think this watch is a major target for that sort of thing because it's not as high profile as Rolex or Omega, and quite more affordable, so it slips under the radar more easily. Sad and a bit scary.

Another thing to think about, is whether a seller of a knock-off might use a photo of a genuine watch on his site. IOW, what you see may not be what you get.

I dare say your best bet would be to cruise on past this one & save yourself $128 + the heartache.

I agree with most of you...I am going to skip this one as it sounds too good to be true...

Thanks for the help!
