    powermatic 80 or valjoux 7750 or c01.211

    Hi guy, I planning of getting a tissot. Which movement should I get?

    I read that 7750 is reliable. But more expensive. Also read that c01.211 has alot of issue.

    I could be mistaken, but the Powermatic 80 doesn't come in any chronographs. The other two movements are chronograph movements - is that what you want?

    Which Tissots are you specifically looking at?

    At least to me, movement is only one piece (sometimes just a small one at that) of the watch purchase decision.

    There is a reason the 7750 being more expensive. The C01.211 is a typical Swatch product following the philosophy of cost minimizing. It does fuction though but for me the 7750 is the better movement.
    Kind regards

    What functions do you want your watch to have?
    Are you willing to pay $600 or more every 5 years to service a mechanical chronograph?
    What do you want your watch to look like?
    If reliability is the primary concern why don't you look at quartz chronographs?

    The P80 only comes in a 3 hander version and if you are happy to have a none chrono is the one I would go for. The C01.211 has had some bad press because of its minimalist approach and its use of some plastic parts. That said though the 7750 is the better movement.

    Powermatic 80 because it's not a chronograph and, I think, made exclusively by Swatch for Tissot.

    Not exclusive for Tissot but was made by ETA for exclusive use of some Swatch Group brands, Certina is also using the Powermatic 80. Besides the longer power reserve the accuracy it's really nice, the word on the street is that all of the Powermatic's are within cosc specs.
