Tissot’s Swissmatic Should be Your First Mechanical Watch

Tissot Swissmatic

Looking for a Swiss-made mechanical watch for under $400? Normally, that would be a tall order, but one of Tissot’s newest timepieces puts that within reach.

The Tissot Everytime Swissmatic features a simple, almost Bauhaus-inspired face, appealing to those looking for minimal watch. However, as the prominent “Swissmatic” moniker would suggest, it also features a Swiss-made automatic movement with a three-day power reserve.

At a price just under $400 with a leather band ($450 with a bracelet), the Everytime Swissmatic is likely aimed at younger watch buyers to draw them into the mechanical watch segment. And with a classic look that’s perfect for everyday attire, this watch is the perfect alternative to non-Swiss brands like Seiko, which have dominated the affordable mechanical watch market for many years.
