    Hamilton Jazzmaster or Tissot Coutourier?

    Hi guys, so just when I had decided to go for the Hamilton Jazzmaster as my first automatic watch - I walk into a Tissot AD and found this watch... I absolutely loved that it has a full exhibition back (opposed to a window offered on the hamilton), I got to wear it and it felt good in weight and size. It was the T035.207.11.011.00 (I saw online that it also comes in black - which I would prefer)

    I also found a local Hamilton agent who said he could order me (if prepaid) the model I liked - but I'm torn over ordering a watch without ever seeing/touching/feeling it or going with the above Tissot that I know I like.


    This is my Hamilton choice:

    So what would you guys do? I do like Hamilton - but the Tissot is very close in my book.

    Are they the same case size?

    I think the placement of the date on the Hammy makes it look more unique. I also think the Hamiton is a little more dressy and the Tissot a bit more casual, so I guess it depends a bit on your style.

    Do you have a pic of the Tissot in black?

    between those two, purely aesthetically, I prefer the Hamilton.

    I like the design of the Tissot better but not wild about white dials.
    It puts the watch on its wrist or it gets the hose.

    I prefer the Tissot. I really like the hands on it, and it strikes me as a dress watch style, where the Hamilton is neither dressy enough to be dressy nor sporty enough to be sporty and so it leaves me hanging...

    For me Tissot usually wins the battles against Hamilton. This one is no exception for me. Just a better balanced dial. Would be better to see them both in black or both in white though.

    This is the Couturier in black. I agree that the Tissot looks a bit more casual too.

    The case size for the Tissot is a little smaller (32mm) the Hamilton is a 35mm case.

    Tissot in black looks much nicer than one with white dial.

    I prefer Tissot's hands and hour markers, but prefer Hamilton's date window and placement..

    Both really nice, and you can't go wrong with either, but I don't like the Tissot's bracelet and I prefer the markers on the Hamilton. So I say Hamilton.
