Daughters Christmas pressie - Tissot Bridgeport auto model T097.007.11.053.00

Recommended Posts

So I have been on the hunt for an entry'ish level automatic watch for my daughters Christmas present - she's 23 in December.

I looked at a few of my usual haunts to see what's on sale at the moment, especially sale/ decommissioned models or soon to be - as these seem to attract the largest discounts.

I checked out a few ladies seiko 5 auto's but the straps looked like they were a little on the cheap side - not surprising as they were priced at around £70. So I started to turn the price dial up slowly and found a Certina which looked lovely but wouldn't ship for 3-5 weeks which I felt might turn into longer.

Next up was a Tissot Bridgeport model number T097.007.11.053.00 which has the following specs;

Condition - new

Stainless steel, Black face - Roman numerals, date at 3 o'clock, fixed milled bezel.

Metal strap - butterfly clasp

Auto movement - ETA Caliber 2671 - hopefully this will give good service for a few years?

29mm case - 8.7mm thick - exhibition case back

Sapphire crystal

£225 - after tax and shipping and $ conversion.

Link is below if you want to see pictures - I'm hoping she likes it :)

This will be my third watch from them this year - hopefully transaction will go without issue like the others.

Yes you are right to a degree - I like others on here have a slight problem with buying watches - not as bad as some but I definitely get a buzz, searching out the next one - though, as you say, some added pleasure knowing it's a gift :)
