At a 45mm in diameter, the steel case with ceramic bezel is certainly sporty.  A textured dial in either grey with t1004271605100-_3red accents or black with yellow accents keep with the theme.  The symmetrical dial, with date function at six and two registers, is a look reminiscent of some of the current Omega Speedmasters.  Inside lies a Swiss ETA automatic Chronograph movement with 54 hours of power reserve.  Straps with matching color accents in red or yellow or the option for a metal bracelet complete the timepiece.

Sporty, well sized, and automatic mechanical check some important boxes.  One of the most important boxes also checked is value.  At an msrp of $2,200, this is a lot of watch for the money.  Tissot is stepping up their marketing with new sponsorships, and it seems they are backing it up with product.  Take a look at this new piece here.
