EDITOR’S PICK: Tissot’s PRS 516 Automatic Small Second is the most fun you can have with three hands


Editor’s note: Had someone mentioned word of a sporty, steel-cased watch with a ceramic bezel and a very clear automotive inspiration, my first thought would be that it’s a chronograph. But this is no chronograph; in fact, Tissot’s PRS 516 Automatic Small Second is something even more interesting. Introducing a novel and, quite frankly, ridiculously fun take on the small seconds to the collection, with more value than you can poke any one of its three seconds hands at.

Interesting and gimmicky while at the same time a monumental waste of fucking time.
I like Tissot and I like the 516 line but this is just stoopit.

Why, he's no fun, he fell right over.

I like mine better; the Powermatic 80 model. That looks way too busy; it seems a lot of the design elements, but it's too much. It's eye-jarring; you don't know where to focus.
Proof that quartz is still not only viable, but sometimes, something to covet: Grand Seiko.
