The JLC posted above is beautiful. I love it! I wish there was a lower priced moon phase as elegant as JLC. That is my favorite watch complication. What's the power reserve?

Is this the correct thread to talk Hamilton and Tissot or poor mans watch? There are two beauties that fit the bill for pairing with a suit. Thanks, and I love the submariner above. It is the quintessential diver watch.

I don't think its a problem. This is a watch appreciation thread. I've never heard of a price requirement.

I believe the power reserve is 38 hours.

Thanks for all the responses so far. I'm still torn about which metal to choose. At the end of the day, the white gold version's dial, hands and hour markers are so much nicer than the steel version's. But I'm not sure if that is enough to justify the added expense (I mean in addition to the gold itself). If the steel had the darker hands/markers, I'd have an easy decision.

I like this Tissot. To my eyes it is an elegant watch. Tissot offers a CSOC and non CSOC option. The CSOC certified version is priced double. The movements are 2824 and 2824-2. Is 2824-2 worth double the price? It is my understanding the ETA 2824 movement is a workhorse but requires considerably more time to regulate or repair, and the 2824-2 is the same movement submitted for certification. The second hand sweeps smooth and is beautiful to watch, my current Orient is more tick tock sweeping due to a lower bph rate.

That Tissot looks fine to me.  I enjoy the romans and white dial more than the black dial.  I don't know if I would pay more just have have an ETA COSC movement but that is more of a personal decision.  My ETA based watch is not certified and keeps time just fine.

Very proud of my new bespoke engraving option; thought I'd share some pics of the prototype movement here...





And some pics of the watch from the front, for good measure...







Happy holidays everybody! biggrin.gif

The white dial with Roman numerals is the non CSOC version. The black dial is CSOC and Roman numerals are unavailable. In pure appearance consideration it's the white dial I desire.

Go with your heart. Everything you've said implies that you prefer the WG. I suspect (despite the extra cost) you will regret it if you buy the steel.

It's COSC btw, not CSOC.
