Tissot are all Swiss made and very well built. Plus these are titanium making them super light. Last I wouldnt call $199 expensive for a quartz, if you want to talk expensive check this: https://www.jomashop.com/cartier-...20035.html

I bought a titanium Citizen with ecodrive and an alarm and a radio time sync and multiple time zones and a chronograph for 240, and its msrp is the same as this watch so I'm not seeing why this one costs so much with only a basic chronograph feature. As for the cartier, they can charge thousands just by putting their name on a limited edition turd.

It's likely the titanium

Although, I put Tissot above Citizen. Citizen's whole market share is it's eco drive (don't get me wrong amazing functionality) whereas Tissot is swiss + quality. Take a chronograph quartz Citizen vs. Chronograph Quartz Tissot - tell me, which of the two are better?

I'd say the one that looks better and is more accurate.

+1 for the Tissot as superior to Citizen...in every way,

A $200 Tissot on the wrist is worth 3 overpriced gold plated $350 Kay Jewelers Citizens in the sock drawer. Tissot has 150+ years of heritage.

The only thing Citizen was ever good for was its 2008 purchase of Bulova....which netted me a handful of $1500 ETA 7750 Accutron VX200 Swiss Chronos for just over $500 a piece...and 2824 based VX200 non chrono for $375 NEW....and Accutron provides the first service for FREE ($300 minimum value) So thank you Citizen. Other than that, nah

I have the sickness (WIS), and have had more swiss time pieces than I care to admit.
I am not a brand loyalist, nor a fanboy without the ability to judge each transaction objectively.
Tissot has traditionally offered a quality piece for the price.
I prefer autmatics myself, but do have a couple older Hamilton swiss quartz models kicking around a drawer from 10+years ago.
I have a tissot seastar 1000 auto from approx 2007. One of the best damn watches for $500 I've ever owned. With a fresh service she is as dead nuts reliable as every COSC piece I have costing 7-10x what I paid for that.

Saying Tissot is superior to Citizen is like saying Arbys is superior to McDonalds.

I'll have to disagree with your analogy, and that will have to be sufficient as I'm disinterested in providing supplementary info as we are all entitled to our opinions, and it's just not that important.

You basically said one cheap mall watch is better than another cheap wall watch. It is not different than comparing one cheap fast food mean to another cheap fast food meal.

To be honest, Citizen has far more patents and has provided more developments to the watch world than Tissot.

Really people may have a preference for one or the other, but neither would ever be considered luxury or retain value.

No my friend, that's not what I basically said. I never stated that Tissot was luxury. Nothing of the sort came out of my mouth. t is an entry level+ swiss offering. Tissot might be an entry level swiss brand, but it is a swiss brand nonetheless.....ask any stranger on a street corner if they had $200 if they would rather wear a swiss watch or a Japanese watch for the same price?

Tissot is part of the Swatch group, which not only gets it access to ETA movements (if you're a watc industry buff you know that ETA is stopping selling ebauches of these ubiquitous movements that power countless swiss timepieces....making them that much more exclusive in the years to come)

Swatch also collectively blows citizen out of the water (even with its 10 year old acquisition of a swiss brand (Accutron). in sales, with 9 billion in annual sales and over 18% of the total global market share.
Citizen has under 4%, and about 3 billion in sales last I read. I'm not going to compare patent figures for all 19 of the swatch brands vs the 14 brands Citizen has, as its not important to my position.

Yes, that's the whole swatch group, but Citizen isnt a lone wolf in its branding as I stated 19/14.

Citizen is the walmart of watch brands. You cannot have a brand offering that runs from garbage to mid line under one brand..just doesnt work. Cheap products flown under the same flag devalues the brand, marketing 101. Bulova and accutron are the higher end, Accutron being a swiss brand that's been around for a long time, and with some extremely innovative tech back in the day...and that's only 9 years ago. Other than that, Wally world, and that works for a lot of people. Some guys wear old navy khakis, some guys wear more expensive pants... but I doubt if anyone was offered the choice between say old navy and Ralph Lauren for $20, not many would walk away with the old navy pair.

I agree that as a whole, Tissot is nothing special, however the dullest member of the good old boys club is still a good old boy.

I would definitely rather by a cheaper Japanese than Swiss! Seiko has some great movements in the sub 600 category, and they have cheaper quartz as well. With the 200 I would consider a Seiko 5, or for a Swiss a Swatch System51 for innovation.

LoL. The really sad part about your whole rant is that you actually believe it all. Tissot would never be considered entry level. Tissot is department store level, the same as Citizen.

Even worse than your delusions of swiss grandeur, is your complete inability to make a logical argument. "Swiss Made" means next to nothing. I would take a Seiko 4R35B every single day over a ETA 2824 movement (as would most). The Miyota 9015 in many Citizen watches is still just as reliable if not more than the ETA movements. Even in the comparison, you are talking about the lowest end of automatic movements.... again you are comparing one fast food joint to another. You can pick up an Invicta with Sellita Swiss movement for $100. Does that mean Invicta would be considered in your "good old boys club"?

Neither company is entry level, neither company is luxury, neither watch will retain any value. They are all cheap everyday beat up and not care about watches. The JPM leather strap on my watch cost more than this Tissot does. I can actually sell just my JPM strap in 2 years and it will have more value and be more respected than this Tissot would.

No way in hell this watch or any Tissot would be considered in any "good old boys club". If it is sold at a Macys or in a Mall watch shop, it is still at the kiddie table.

There are some nice citizen watches out there. I like the eco-drive versions with auto time keeping feature.
