[I'm new to WUS, so forgive me if I've posted this question in the wrong forum...]
Anyway, I'm looking to purchase an affordable (<$600) mechanical watch.
Based on personal preference, I've narrowed the field down to the Seiko SARB035 and the Tissot Visodate
Here are the reviews on WUS:

Seiko SARB035: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f21/sei...es-285906.html
Aesthetically, I love them both. I don't have a preference for either brand. Price-wise, they're very close.
So, I'd like to know more about the movement.
I've read that the Tissot uses an ETA 2836-2. I don't know about the Seiko.
Can anyone provide their thoughts on which is "better?" (Higher quality? More reliable/accurate, etc?)
Also - since I'd be buying the Seiko from Japan (sight unseen) - can anyone share their thoughts on whether either watch has a higher build quality?
Many thanks in advance for your advice and insight!
