It sucks when you really like something, but have to concern yourself with status, but that's just how things are I guess. All I'm asking is if Tissots are viewed in a good light and it's a respectable watch, not asking if it's viewed like AP, VC, IWC, Breitling, and what have you, haha. Seriously? You are hanging with the wrong crowd or have the wrong attitude. I wear stuff for me and I do care less what others think. But who are you trying to impress? General public or Watch Snobs? General public has never heard of Tissot. Watch snobs will say "he cant afford Tag Heuer" I would not go with Tissot. If you wanna be top of the food chain you either gotta role at that level or dont even try.
