    Q re Tissot vs Raymond Weil movements

    I'm considering purchasing another watch and there are two models that interest me, one from Tissot and the other Raymond Weil. There are a couple of sites that "rate" Swiss made watches and based on that Tissot is allegedly a better watch. I say allegedly because the ratings seem to be more based on popularity rather than actual quality, although I could be wrong. In any event I'm more impressed with what's on my wrist than I am ratings. Now to the issue.....Tissot lists the movement used in their watch as an ETA C07.111. However, Raymond Weil doesn't indicate what movement is inside their watches. So, do any of you experts have an opinion as to the relative quality of the two movements - or even know what movement R-W uses?

    They're more or less going to be the same quality (ie: low grade ETA or Ronda movements)

    RW probably use Sellita's these days, but it's much the same thing. You'd have have to tell us the model. That ETA is a Powermatic so it will have an 80 hour reserve which could be a significant benefit depending on how you rotate your watches.

    My bad, whenever I hear Tissot and RW I automatically default to quartz. GlennO sounds about right, probable Sellita based.

    I'm not sure what RW use but one thing you can be fairly certain of is that it won't be duff so you can take your pick of brands without worrying about the innards.

    Indeed.

    Also, I know RW doesn't use the PM80 and don't believe they have a PR approaching that if that's important.
