It’s been almost exactly a year since the last time we gushed about Tissot. Then there was the earth-shattering showdown between Tissot and Movado for the title of Best Affordable Luxury Watch, a contest that ended in a tie.
What we’re getting at is that it’s been way too long since we talked about one of our favorite Swiss luxury watchmakers. So we’ve decided to go through our stock of Tissots and show some of them off.
One of the reasons we love men's Tissot watches is that they make it easy for newcomers to get into the world of watch collecting. Essentially, they’re providing Swiss luxury watches to the masses by pricing them affordably while still providing excellent mechanical pieces of the highest quality.
This is, of course, a great thing. The fact that all people aren’t “watch people” boggles our mind. Collecting and enjoying luxury watches is one of the few universally great things in life. We’ve petitioned the White House several times over the years to create an official “Luxury Watch Ambassador” position, and then to appoint WatchMaxx for a lifelong position at the head of it. Our role would be to ensure that every American is thoroughly educated on the joys of luxury watches.
Anyways, we digress. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite Tissots, each one in stock and ready to ship!
The T-Classic is a spectacular showing of how Tissot men's watches can look like a million bucks, but which only costs a few hundred.
The gold tone on the case and the detail of the dial is beautifully polished, and glitters in all the right places. The brown leather strap is reminiscent of a study in a large, old house, complete with a giant oaken desk and shelves stacked with encyclopedias.
The chronograph functionality maintains that refined presence by keeping the classy look and not turning into an overtly sport-oriented watch. The controls are minimal and the sub dials are inconspicuous.
All in all, this is a great example of why Tissot is a great entry point into luxury watches.

Just because they’re affordable, that doesn’t mean that Tissot is willing to rest on their laurels. Now that we’ve written that sentence out, we realized we don’t know what laurels are, or why it’s bad to rest on them. Anyways.
Tissot is a brand that’s always experimenting. Sure, they have your general luxury watches, trimmed in precious gleaming tones and topped off with high quality leather straps. But they also have their more fun designs. In fact, the Tissot catalog is rich with bold watches that aren’t quite like anything else out there.
That’s sort of where the T-Touch comes in. It’s a stunning design that combines analog hands with a digital display on the lower half of the dial. This digital portion handles all of the chronograph functionality, as well as providing date, GMT, compass, weather, barometer, alarm clock, etc., etc. functions.
It’s a real jack of all trades, for sure, but more importantly it looks amazing. For our hipper readers out there, we’d even say it’s “very cool.”

And then there are the Tissot watches that manage to be both bold and innovative while still having an undeniably luxurious look. The Couturier is certainly one of those.
A couturier is a fashion designer that makes and sells bespoke clothes for their clients’ individual requirements and specifications. That makes this an aptly named watch, because the first time you strap it to your wrist you’ll swear that it was made specifically for you.
Part of this effect is because the watch is designed to sit comfortably on the wrist and is supported by a high quality leather strap, and part of it is because of the jaw-dropping design.
The dial is definitely something to write home about. The unconventional design finds the hour and minute hands and the second hand separated into two sub dials that connect at the 7 o’clock and the 5 second markers. The gold tone trimmings are almost liquid-like against the rich black dial.
This is a dress watch through and through, but we wouldn’t hold it against you if you wanted to make it your everyday wear.

The Seastar is one of Tissot’s most iconic lines, and it’s easy to see why. Who doesn’t want an immaculately crafted dive watch with all the trappings of Swiss luxury, including a spectacular automatic movement, for under $1000?
On top of that, the dial on this particular model is incredible. The blue gradient perfectly evokes the smell of the Caribbean while the luminous dot hour markers and the large rotating bezel give it an undeniably nautical feel.
If you’re looking for a beautiful luxury dive watch that isn’t going to eat into your mortgage payment, Tissot’s Seastars are exactly where you want to be.

Of course, sometimes Tissot likes to spread their wings and show off a little bit of opulence. The T-Gold line is populated with some of the most luxurious watches you’re going to find.
This model in particular sports stunning 18kt gold combined with a deep reflective blue dial. The combination is the height of class, and the two tones play with one another on an almost supernatural level.
This is a watch that commands power to the wearer. But always remember, with great power comes great responsibility to show off your amazing watch to everybody you talk to.
