As the official timekeeper of the Asian Games, Tissot presents the new PRC 200 Chrono Quartz Asian Games Special Edition Watch. This sporty timepiece features a silk printed sapphire glass case back and red details, which underlines its sporty character and unique style.
This newcomer stands out from the other similar models thanks to its screwed down crown and case back. The exclusive limited edition timepiece is able to dive to the depths of 200 meters (approximately 660 feet).
The new PRC 200 Asian Games 2014 watch is housed in a round stainless steel case which measures 42mm in diameter and 12mm in thickness. Its case incorporates a reduced, narrow bezel, which means that the dial looks a bit larger, thus offering a clear look and high level of readability, which is enhanced by the use of Superluminova for the indices.
The beating heart of the PRC 200 Chrono Asian Games Special Edition 2014 is the Swiss made G10.211 Quartz movement.
Underneath the front sapphire glass, there is a sober, black dial which comprises Arabic numerals 3, 9 and 12, as well as two chronograph counters at 2 and 10 o’clock positions for measuring time up to 30 minutes and the 10th of a second, as well as a small seconds sub-dial at the 6 o’clock position. The chronograph function provides ADD and SPLIT times. There is also a date aperture located at the 4 o’clock position. Finally, a raised-level tachymeter scale nicely rounds the dial surface.
The version of the PRC 200 Asian Games Special Edition intended for the men (ref. T055.417.11.057.01) comes with the retail price of $575. Tissot also offers a model for women that features an elegant silver dial which adds a feminine touch. This beautiful timepice (ref. T055.217.11.032.00) comes with the same price tag of $575.
Both models are teamed with solid stainless steel bracelets with push buttons. Each of them boasts an engraved case back with the 17th Asian Games Incheon 2014 logo and a red taking from the sun of the Olympic Council of Asia. Each Asian Games Special Edition model is limited to 2,014 specimens.
This year’s 17th Asian Games (aka the Asiad) will take place in the South Korean city of Incheon from September 19 to October 4. The XVII Asiad is the largest sporting event in Asia governed by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA). The Asian Games incorporates 439 events in 36 different sports and disciplines.
