If you want to be sure that the watch is factory packed and not used before, then buy it from an Authorised Tissot Dealer.
Simple as that.
The package should be a black box with a red lid.
Thanks Teeritz for your excellent review. After I forwarded the photos from your post to my wife, that evening she surprised me with my very own Visodate! We celebrated by a light dinner, wine and your review!
Wow, I'm honoured! Maybe Tissot should be sending me a check. Your wife sounds like a nice lady. And the light dinner was a great way to celebrate. Congrats on the watch. The Visodate is an absolute bargain. I'll be wearing my one quite a bit over the next few weeks since I've got some time off work.
Enjoy that watch!
Fantastic review!! Visodate is one of my favorites!! Classic and elegant... and cheaper than others, jejejeje
Thank you for your great review, teeritz!
I had seen pictures of the Visodate, and I thought it was a great looking watch. I think this thread Pictures of my new Tissot Visodate 1957 may have started something in my head, but it was definitely your exceptional review that sealed my decision: I have just got myself a Tissot Visodate!
I learned from your review that Tissot has changed the shape of the case; that was completely new info to me. The new case very quickly became a deal braker for me, and I decided that if I don't find an old Visodate, I'm not going get one at all. That decision certainly made things quite hard: it seemed that no AD on the web had the old model any more. However, I managed to find an AD here in Finland (quite far away from me, though) who had the watch on their web site, and their price was about 15 % off the MSRP. I contacted them to be sure: sadly they only had the new models, they just hadn't updated their web site. So I had to call the deal off.
Then I decided to visit all the Tissot ADs in downtown Helsinki, maybe I would have some luck and find the old model. After a few visits without any luck I managed to find one! They had all the different versions, but only the stainless steel version with silver dial had the case with the ridges! Just what I was looking for! And I even managed to negotiate that 15 % off from the MSRP!
I'm so excited; sometimes you just get lucky! And this actually is the first watch I've bought face to face from an AD (I've ordered some watches from ADs through Internet, though).
Here's a wrist shot of the beauty on my 7.1 inch (18 cm) wrist:
I'm so happy because of my new Visodate. It's so understated in a lovely way, so timeless but at the same time so retro.

Great review! Does the Visodate have a screw down crown? Thanks.
thanks to your review I purchased a Visodate too.
At first I was opting for Silver Arrow, however, seeing your review I decided to go with Visodate and am happy to have made such a decision. I purchased mine in London UK, and as for the model number it stated '00.
