    Hi all, i own a tissot PRS 516 i bought it off adverts. The P/O stated to me he bought it brand new in kneisnels waterford, he said he claimed for a new battery shortly after purchase he said the watch and warranty card/paper was given to kneisnels and when he collected the watch they never gave him back any paperwork. Now i believe the watch is a genuine tissot i have box, books, instructions and travel case all the chronograph functions work.

    Anything i can do about paperwork? Whats my best option or should i just forget about it.

    You could always try phoning Kneisnels, they may have them lying in a drawer. Other than that I doubt Tissot will help without proof of legitimate ownership.

    Unfortunately Kniesels shut permanently around the start of March.

    Then I'd say 'forget about it'.

    Yeah, I wouldn't bother. Papers aren't really that important unless it's a high end watch, a few grand. It wouldn't bother me unless it's one that's repped a lot, and the tissot isn't.

    Are you sure? I think they just sold to new owners but would be the same shop essentially. I'd still say there is no hope of getting the papers but as alluded to above, the papers for a Tissot wouldn't really impact the value of it.

    I left a watch in with them for service at the start of February and they seemed reasonably busy. Got a phone call 4 weeks later telling me they'd gone into liquidation and they'd be open 3 hours a day for the next 2 days to give back items that had been left in for service or repair. In fairness they had they watch back working 100%. Everything was cleared out of the shop though, no stock, nothing. Door was locked and only dealing with people they had called by appointment. Up to a few weeks ago the premises was still locked up, whether that's changed since, I don't know.

    Was sorry to see it go, the staff were always friendly and they used always have a slightly different range to what you'd see in most places, although less noticeable in recent years. Another sad milestone in the decline of Waterford.
