Hi. Have heaps of Tissot. They are one of the most under rated Swiss watches. Movements are the same as an Omega and many other parts are interchangeable. The original Tissot was a very high end watch brand supplying the Russian Imperial Court. After the Russian revolution they slowly lost their clientele and were taken over by Omega and eventually became a lower tier brand to Omega.
I had the modern version for a couple of years but eventually sold it. It has tall slab sides and the bracelet is ridiculous. It wore much better on leather.
Have on myself that I picked up second hand on Ebay. A very nice watch but I agree with tritto , a bit slab sided. I also find the crown is so close to the case that it is a little difficult to hand wind. Mine never came with the original bracelet - so I popped it onto a leather "Rally" strap. Unfortunately I can't find the watch at the moment - this watch and my Alpinist a lost in the bedroom boxes and draws .. somwhere.
