Because of this huge success in Britain, Tissot watches are now headquartered in Britain. They are proud of their Swiss heritage and belong to the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry. Tissot watches today manufacture a large range of models that include Chinese and Japanese movements. The watches made in China and Japan will be less expensive compared to the watches made in Switzerland. These less expensive watches will bear the mark 'Established in Switzerland" but are not made in Switzerland. The watches made in Switzerland will bear the mark "Swiss Made" on them. According to Swiss law, the watch needs to be assembled and use Swiss made movement in order for it to qualify as a Swiss watch.
Tissot watches use either quartz or automatic movements. The watches will have the dolphin standard which means that they are waterproof. Rotary has evolved to become a successful watch company and today make many different models for both men and women. These include both quartz and automatic movements. Tissot was a pioneer in quartz technology way back in the 1970,s. Before quartz watches, the movement of the watch was controlled by using an oscillating tuning fork. Quartz movement on the other hand meant that watches could become much more accurate and efficient than before. The company has gone on to become a leading watch maker and have won numerous awards for excellence, style and innovation.
Whether you want to buy a contemporary, classic, gents or ladies watches, looking into a Tissot watch would be a good start. Some of the classic designs such as the Gents limited edition and the classic ladies watches are highly sought after watches. You will be able to get bracelet designs or watches with leather straps. Tissot has made use of stainless steel, silver and gold to make their watches. The bracelet models can be found in these metals and they are produced to be of high quality.
One of the reasons for the popularity of Tissot watches is that these watches can be had for a relatively low price. They make watches that come with a reasonable price tag. The cheapest ones will come as low as 60-70 dollars and the pricier ones will cost around 1000 dollars. There is perhaps no other watch maker that gives such a wide price range, considering the quality involved. It is this combination of price and innovation that has helped propel Tissot watches as one of the leading watch manufacturers.
