Tissot Classic Dream White Watch T033.410.16.013.00 -Review

 

The Tissot T-Classic collection includes an incredible selection of watches, including some for more than $ 2,000. But the classic dream watch is at the lower end of the Tissot price spectrum and costs around $ 250. This makes it one of the Swiss manufacturer’s cheapest watches. Tissot sells 8 variations of the T-Classic Dream with a variety of box and dial surfaces. The model reviewed here today is a classic silver-and-white design with a brown leather strap; a classic design that aims to never go out of style. The design is outrageously simple and aims to have a wide appeal for those looking for a classic, dependable, everyday dress watch. Okay, so there are many watches out there that fit this description, read on to see if this is right for you.

White dial

The stark white dial of the Classic Dream is a clean, simple affair. The large, easy-to-read Roman black hour markers are broken only by a small date field that replaces half of the “III” mark. The date window, shown in black and white, blends perfectly with the rest of the quadrant and is easy to read. That the classic dream uses a sapphire crystal is perhaps the most surprising aspect of the whole piece. Sure, it’s a quartz watch, but it’s still a rather unusual find at that price and certainly one of the most compelling outlets. The alpha-style hands are finished in silver, matching the finish on the case. Company name and year of foundation (1853: impressive 165 years ago) adorn the upper half of the dial, just below the XII digit.

Simple case

The case of the T-Classic is simple and robust in design. Tissot uses 316L stainless steel for its construction, as a quick Google search tells us that it is a high quality form of ubiquitous metal that is particularly suitable for high temperature applications. (not that many watch owners subject their timepieces to extremely high heat). With a width of 38 millimeters, the case is on the smaller side for watches these days, but it’s a very sensible size that should look good on almost any wrist. It is also thin, only 7.5 millimeters thick. The fixed bezel of the Classic Dream sits at an angle to the sapphire crystal and the clear and simple design matches the look of the dial. A relatively small water-resistance of 30 meters should not bother most buyers, because although it is a versatile watch, it is not the kind of watch that you wear in water sports. “Tissot 1853” is stamped with large letters on the back of the case, a theme that is also repeated on the front of the watch. Of course, the back of the case also makes sure to mention the sapphire crystal material as well as a couple other details about the watch.

 

ETA Movement

An ETA Swiss quartz is the focus. Although it is not a first-rate move, this should be a high quality and reliable move. As most of you probably already know, quartz movements have the advantage that they are cheaper and more accurate than mechanical movements. Of course, the quartz movement also means that the watch can remain quite thin and is much less complicated and bulky than a mechanical movement. This is a great advantage when it comes to fitting under long sleeves or keeping you from hitting the watch on various things as you go about your day.

 

Strap

The dark brown leather strap is a pretty yet simple design that perfectly matches the aesthetics of the dial and case. A sharp end thread through a typical buckle embossed with “Tissot”, a touch of style for this discreet watch. The 19 mm wide band uses a crocodile pattern and complements the overall style of the watch very well.
