Perception of Tissot Watches - Page 7

post #91 of 101
Tissot is a solid watch.
post #92 of 101

I"ve had my Powermatic 80 (T0864071103100) for almost six months now and except for an initial hicup of losing time, I love it.  It is the most beautiful watch I've ever owned and the most expensive. $895.00  I lusted after the Omega 231.10.42.21.06.001 but will never afford $4155.00.  I honestly think the Tissot is prettier.

The watch I've had for ten years just broke, and my parents have offered to buy me a new one for Christmas.  I am shopping a Tissot against an Orient.  Could you guys give me some feedback?

I don't think you can go wrong either way. Both are very nice and will look great as both an office wear and on the weekends. I prefer the Orient however as I like the hack marks on the minutes and the winding crown. I also prefer the gold color. Regardless of which you buy, enjoy and wear in good health.

Thank you for your feedback.  I am considering buying the Orient, but with a steel case instead of the gold-colored case.  The more I think about it, the more the gold color looks a little odd with a brown leather strap.

JayKio,

I have read you post's from 18 months ago. I was looking for information on Tissot's and you provide some of the information I was looking for and as a result I have decided to buy this brand of watch and have chosen a particular model. Thank you for that.

 

 

I ahev made this post after 18 months in the hopes that you will read these comments and that you will  know that somebody did appreciate the effort you made to make your posts in a foreign language and I would like to take this chance to thank you for the comments. Please know that not all people on all forums are like the “pervert internet-gangsters “ that you have encountered.

 

I hope to encounter you in some other forum where you may communicate with other watch enthusiasts. If this does not happen then it is MY loss to not read you comments again.

 

My best wishes for the future.

Second. Its not too prestigious a brand. period.

 

having said that. where does it stands on the spectrum b/w lowest and highest. well its an above average. i place it at number at number 3 or 4 towards hard ten. That would mean its not definitely going to make one look like poor-bastard. at the same time. its kinda not-too-bad brand. it wont get u respect but wont let n e one think of disrespecting u either.

 

hope this helps.

Tissot watch

I arrived here as my fiancee presented me with a Tissot watch and(I looked it up) was $1700 in Dubai where she purchased it.

That said.....had never heard of Tissot. And neither has anyone else I asked.

I can't believe that many posters here believe a man's integrity,social standing,wealth and moral aptitude is derived from what one is wearing in a WATCH.

I deal in high end real estate in Idaho(not potato country) and VERY SELDOM see a watch on a client or if I do, could not ever make out the brand.

How do you do that...make out the brand with a client?

My clients and I have a Smartphone in our vest pocket and a cheap watch for tree skiing or running gates. In a social setting...no one hardly wears watches or if they do.....how do you tell the brand unless they are comatose with their wrist in an upright position?

Do they somehow stick their wrist in your face at some point in a negotiation,meeting or social setting and "Psst...I have a Rolex(insert 100 other brands of high end) and that means I will not take NO for an answer".

Being this is a WATCH forum,I somehow tend to believe that most here inevitably get around in a social setting to talking of watches amongst watch people.

I JUST DON'T GET IT.

Hi, I made an account just to reply to this.

This is the funniest thing I have read all day.

That is all

Let me put your mind at ease. the Tissot watch brand has a storied history. They were founded in 1853, have all kinds of endorsements with several of the most well known organizations in the world. Look up their history on Wikipedia.

As mentioned earlier, they are owned by the Swatch company who produce all of the ETA movements, which are in most of the high end watches in the world.

I am about to purchase the Tissot Couturier. It has a Valjoux 7750 movement in it, one of the most prestigious movements in the world for chronograph watches, which have been used by Rolex, Panerai, and Tag Huer.

Tissot was just featured in the latest Tom Cruise Mission Impossible movie, and what a prestigious product endorsement that was. They showed close-ups of the Tissot watch on 2 separate occasions.

Many people may not be aware of Tissot's rich and long watch making history since 1853, but in my opinion it is a very respectable watch, if not slightly prestigious. And if you get the Tissot Couturier with the Valjoux 7750 movement in it, at about $1,000.00, you will be wearing one of the most prestigious watches in the world, because it is primarily the movement in the watch that establishes its quality, and thereby it's prestige.

Likewise, the JazzMaster Lord Hamilton watch by Hamilton, also has a Valjoux 7750 movement in it, at about $1,00.00, if you're interested in looking at that watch also.

When you think of it, Tom Cruise and the producers of the Mission Impossible franchise are making movies at the highest level of movie making. The mission Impossible movies are all about the most innovative technology in the world. For them to choose Tissot as a product endorsement watch in that movie was a huge endorsement of how much respect they have for the Tissot brand.

Now, to all of you judgmental A-Holes who are trying to judge this man on his desire to have a watch that will represent him in a respectable manner, F-Off! He asked for your opinion on the watches, not for your judgment on him as a person.

If you're not a watch aficionado, that's fine, but don't judge those who have been seduced by the history of watch making, and who can appreciate the fine craftsmanship that goes into making a superior luxury watch, and don't judge those who want to make sure that they are representing themselves in a fashionable and respectful manner.

After all, we live in a superficial world. That's the way it is, and if you desire to get a watch that others will respect, then that's what you have to do, because those superficial people in the world who are already successful, only want to deal with others that they perceive to be successful also, and those are the people that they will give opportunities to for future successes.

I do hope this post was of some assistance to you. Good luck with your final decision, and purchase!
