Swiss watches come with a prestige, heritage and quality that is instantly recognisable - these qualities combined are the reason why they are so desirable. So to come across a brand like Tissot, ticking all of the aforementioned boxes at an accessible price by accessible I mean not at the cost of a small car, i.e. GBP 2-5k is refreshing.

I was looking for a simple, white faced, stainless steel case - not Gold plated - watch that was discreet yet classy enough to wear in both formal and informal settings. This watch is exactly that, an old school charm with a functional look by way of function it has very little other than a sweeping second hand and date feature.
The current trend in watches for men point towards very large and wide watch cases. All fine and well if youre a tall bulky man, not a good look for the small guys out there like me. Browsing all the usual shops and websites I came across very few watches that fit my criteria of being a small size this watch is 3.5cms in width with a stainless steel case that was not Gold in colour. When a watch did meet my criteria it was either too expensive Omega De Ville Prestige, moving on very swiftly or upon further research was not of a sufficient quality heres to you Braun, for outsourcing manufacture of your watches to ..... Zeon!.

What led me to this watch was coming across its Gold plated equivalent, which is in stock at most department stores and good websites. I thought to myself immediately if only I could find the same watch, minus the Gold plating ... Tissot website here I come! and voila, there it was. I had to have it thereafter - bearing in mind that both Gold plate and stainless steel versions have the same Roman numerals, vivid white dial and date window. The leather strap looked very patent from website images but in reality is not at all ostentatious and has a nice thickness to it which lends itself to long wearing quality. The case is thin but has a nice weight to it - I can imagine some people wearing a watch and not wanting the weight of it on their wrist, not me - I like to know that a watch in on my wrist take a plastic Swatch for example - perfectly good watch, I have one in black, I forget its there when Im wearing it ?!. The buckle has a flat recess where you will see Tissot printed in black. At this point I come across the only negative point for this watch - instead of printing Tissot in that flat recess, it would have been infinitely classier to have engraved it into the metal. In itself not a problem at all as it is detail only for the wearer and does not affect performance of the watch or the buckle mechanism.

The only real problem with this watch? Its hard to find, very few websites have it in stock and the major department stores only stock the Gold equivalent. So here I am feeling very smug about my purchase :D

Pleased with the watch. Slim and looks good. Minor gripe would be that the second hand is quite prominent so that, at a quick glance, I can sometimes mistake it for the minute hand.

I thought thatI would be able to my last watch with a cheapo. However when it arrived I was not happy. I viewed many watches on line but this one seemed to be the closest to what I was seeking. The only real doubt I had was to take this one or the same watch in gold casing. Many watches look similar but are much more bulky. This one is very refined but really clear, and, of course, keeps perfect time. I am very satisfied all round. Highly recomended.

Mens's Tissot Desire Watch T512421113.

I bought this watch for my husband's birthday: it is an understated classic, elegant watch with a beautiful black leather strap which is comfortable and provides an excellent fit. Its slim simplicity makes its suitable for wearing with a formal suit or with casual smart clothes.

I have slim wrists so the chronograph style watches dwarf me, so I wanted something smaller and more classical. Im no watch afficianado but the Tissot is a very nice watch, very slim and sleek with a clear display and Im very happt with how it looks on my wrist. Well packaged with nice box, Tissot catalogue and book of Tissot history included. For the price this is an excellent watch.

Wonderful classic watch for those who prefer slim understated look. Plain steel case and white face with roman numerals make ideal for formal or informal wear. Only minor problem, my son has very slim wrists and had to take to jewellers to have another hole properly cut in strap.

I bought this watch for my boyfriend's birthday, and he was absolutely delighted. It's a classic men's watch- black leather strap, simple watch face with silver detailing. It's not chunky, doesn't have any bling or useless gadgets which is what makes it so good and not 'in your face'. It's good quality and timeless so definitely value for money. I'd also recommend it for other women for the same reasons- I'm considering buying one for myself now!

I was a bit nervous about the 'mock croc' leather strap, but it's a large scale pattern and so adds a nice detail whilst being very subtle. When I pulled the watch out the box, the wrist strap did look quite small- but it fit my partner fine and it's perfectly sized for the average male wrist.

Light, perfectly proportioned and well made. A great watch if you like classic design and have a slim wrist.



The watch is great as an everyday piece - not necessarily much of a statement due to it's simple features.

If you are looking for a high-quality, aestethically pleasing Roman Numeral-style Swiss watch, you cannot go wrong with this black and white Tissot design.



The watch is very light and it's easy to forget you're actually wearing it, unlike many watches with heavier metal casing and straps.



The leather strap is ideal for people with slim wrists like me, but wouldn't be suitable for chunkier ones.



Overall, a really good value and smart-looking piece of time-keeping equipment. Highly recommended.

Product was great - just what I wanted

The only thing I would comment on was that the roman numerals could have been more raised.



Otherwise I liked its slim look, the strap and the face

Whilst this is a Men's watch, I actually purchased it for my wife who likes the larger dial. She is so pleased with the watch that she has now asked me purchase another one for her but this time with a brown strap!

I enjoy wearing my watch.

To be honest i don`t see any flaws in it, and i recomend it if you have a small wrist, otherwise it looks ridicoulous on a man`s wrist.

I think this watch beautiful. A really nice simple face which is stunning with the stainless steel case. The only thing I did`nt like was the strap, why oh why can`t you people use a plain simple leather strap without the crocodile effect. My husband is delighted with it which is great for it replaced the one I gave for our 50th wedding anniversary that packed in.

I searched & reviewed several makes looking for a gents conservative, plain circular, strap watch for a birthday present; many other brands looked great but actually were too proud standing away from the wrist. Found this Tissot on your website and it was perfect. Great design,very simply a classic and at an amazing price, too ! Your customer service is second-to-none, with the watch being delivered three minutes after your estimated time of arrival. If I could change one thing, it would be to make the leather strap a little softer - but I'm sure it will soften-up in time.Thank you to everyone at Watch Shop UK. I hope to order a second item next month, for another birthday present.
