Tissot Couturier

Post by koimaster » August 11th 2020, 12:31pm

All watch collectors have a “type” of watch they gravitate towards. I certainly do: I like my sport watches simple. I like my dress watches classically designed and small. I tend to stick to a type of watch, as can be seen from the choice of watches that have been reviewed.
However, I took a chance with this Tissot Couturier. This watch, by almost any metric, is one that’s so different that I thought I would likely never own it. Honestly, if Tissot didn’t produce this, I wouldn’t have pulled the trigger. The endorsement by one of the most reputable brands around convinced me. As is common in many things in life, going out on a limb paid off. The Couturier has surpassed my expectations.

This one’s OK. Most of the Couturier line is, except the auto chrono - the Lemania 5100 was good, but its current 15-jewel version with plastic parts is notoriously unreliable and sucks cock.

Foggy had one of those.
As did I, black dial. Nice enough finishing on the watch, zero AR coating, thick as a brick, too heavy, wide ass bracelet vs case. Flipped it.

If had it to do over I would’ve given leather a go. Still would have likely delayed the inevitable. Just way too thick.

I do remember foggy had it in black. I liked that version far more, visually.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster
