Off the Cuff: Roue CHR

The PVD-coated tonneau-shaped CHR comes in with a case diameter of 41.5mm, a lug-to-lug distance of 47mm, a thickness of 10.9mm and a lug width of 22mm. As you can see from the photos below, it fits nicely on my 6.25” (16cm) wrist due to having a short lug-to-lug distance and thin profile. The tonneau case definitely helps make the watch look and feel great on the wrist, and having a mecaquartz movement within, you are looking at a lightweight timepiece.

Off the Cuff: Tissot Seastar 1000 Chronograph

The Seastar name first appeared in the Tissot catalogue in 1954, but not as a dive watch, or a chronograph. It was in reference to its caseback, which used new technology to repel moisture and dust. The latest iterations certainly do that. True to its name, the Seastar 1000 offers up a whopping 300m (1000ft) of water resistance, due in part to its screw down crown and caseback. To achieve this in the chronograph version, the brand has also designed funky, screw down pushers.
