We know, we know. That title might cause you to think that our beloved Tissot is embroiled in some sort of catty internet drama or has been making controversial waves in the world of luxury watches. The reality is that we just liked the way it sounds. "The Tea With Tissot" has a great ring to it.

The truth is that we just wanted to talk about one of our favorite watchmakers some more. It feels like it's been aaages since the last time we gushed about one of the world's greatest affordable luxury watch makers. So, what has happened since then?

Well, Tissot has made Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors a frontline brand ambassador. The basketball star is a three-time NBA champion, five-time NBA All-Star, and two time Olympic gold medal winner. Most importantly, he looks great in a Tissot.

Of course, it's really hard not to look great in a Tissot.

Other than that, Tissot has continued to release amazing watches, including new Seastars and a whole bunch of really cool chronographs.

Alright, so let's skip the pleasantries and get on to business. Below are our 5 current top picks from our in-stock Tissot collection. We recommend getting all five, but that's up to you.

And, again, we're sorry about not having any actual tea to report with Tissot. It's just so hard to find because everybody loves them.

The Tissot T-Race Chronograph Automatic Rose Gold PVD

This is a beautiful, sporty watch that's perfect for active people or anyone who wants to feel like they're an active person. It has a rose gold PVD case and bezel with black accents, a black rubber strap, and a Swiss-made automatic movement.

PVD is a process where a metal, such as gold, is basically vaporized and sprayed onto another base metal. It's much sturdier than plating, and can withstand the wear and tear of daily watch-wearing activities without chipping away and looking awful.

That's a blessing for this T-Race Chronograph, because the rose gold look is absolutely spectacular, especially the way it's intertwined with the sleek black finish on the dial and along the bezel.

The Tissot Seastar 1000 Chronograph Black Dial

Have we ever talked about how much we love the Seastar? That was rhetorical, because of course we have. And what's not to love? These amazing dive watches are built like tanks and powered by incredible Swiss-made quartz engines.

This black dialed beauty is a personal favorite of ours because it keeps the classic Seastar look, but adds that bit of edge with the splash of bright red along the bezel. The all-black dial and stainless steel bracelet are the perfect complements for this small but mighty addition of color.

The Seastar 1000 is water resistant to an impressive 300 meters, has a unidirectional bezel, and a screw-down crown. It's everything you could ever want in a dive watch, and more, all for a price that's easier to swallow than a mouthful of ocean spray.

The Tissot Chrono XL Black Dial

We're risking aging ourselves here, but we've always loved the aesthetic of the original Tron. The newer one was okay, too, but it just didn't have the same magic. Something about a digitized lofi world filled with neon colored lasers and people in funny helmets riding weird motorcycles really stirred our imaginations.

This Chrono XL brings back all of those feelings with its piercing blue accents on an otherwise pitch black backdrop. While minimalist in design, it still sports three large sub dials and a date window along with chronograph controls on the side. The bezel is slim and the lugs are barely there, leading to an exquisite black fabric strap.

If the idea of a luxury Tron watch is exciting to you, which it should be, then this is probably the luxury piece that was made for you.

The Tissot Chrono XL Classic Green Dial

Of course, not everybody is ready to take a walk on the wild side with their luxury watches, and for those people we present the equally stunning green dial, two-tone version of the Chrono XL.

This watch is the perfect blend of modern and classic, with a polished stainless steel case and bracelet, a green sunray dial, and three subdials. The bezel is a very classy polished gold tone, and the lugs are just the right amount of curvaceous.

This is a perfect watch for anyone who wants something a little bit different, but not too different. It's still an incredibly stylish and well-made timepiece that will last for years and years to come, and one which you'll never get tired of looking at.

The Tissot T-Classic Automatics III

Of course, if it's classy you want then it's a classic that you'll want to go with. This T-Classic is all luxury, all the time, with a sleek and sophisticated design that's perfect for the refined gentleman.

The white dial is pristine and beautiful, accented perfectly with the gold tone hands and hour markers. The bezel sports a stunning dual tone look, with gold on the inner perimeter and polished steel along the outside. This two-tone look continues through the bracelet where two glittering gold toned strips are flanked by sturdy stainless steel links.

This is a watch that's perfect for those who want the best of both worlds: the sophisticated look of a classic, and the modern engineering of a luxury timepiece.
