Embodying high performance on the wrist and on the track, the Tissot PRS 516 was designed to meet the unique demands of gentlemen drivers. Ushering in a new chapter for the PRS 516 collection, the luxury watchmaker has introduced a trio of new derivatives – the PRS 516 Automatic Chronograph, the PRS 516 Powermatic 80 and the PRS 516 Quartz Chronograph – each true to the iconic vintage design of their forebear. 


According to the brand, each model boasts the same attention to detail required in top-level racing. The Tissot PRS 516 Automatic Chronograph is distinguished by the Valjoux movement, providing “ultimate” reliability and precision. These attribute, Tissot says, makes this derivative the most prestigious sports watch in the collection. 

The second variant in the line-up, the PRS 516 Powermatic 80, sports a three-hand dial, which gives the watch a classical feel. It also features a flange with a subtle engraving of the Tissot logo. 

The PRS 516 Quartz Chronograph – the third model in the collection – “epitomizes” the 1960s sporty look. This piece features three counters, plus a chequered flag and steering wheel engraved on the case back.
