So I posted this on this tissot forum but didn't get much in the way of feedback so I am throwing it our to the general forum in hopes of getting some further ideas.
Saw this Tissot V8 at the AD the other day and thought I could be on a winner. Currently under $500AUD on sale, and for that get sapphire glass, exhibition case back, 100m WR, 70+ hr power reserve, nice clean look with just a little color. Asked the tissot forum and just had one person respond saying it was an "unserviceable" movement?
So I guess I have a 2 fold question for the powers that be:
1) anyone have any firsthand experience with this watch or can shed any light on what the tissot person meant?
2) recommend any other similar style/quality watches in a similar price bracket? Or at least 1k and under
