    Tissot, Oris, Movado, Hamilton which is your favorite entry level Swiss watch ?

    Which is your favorite entry level Swiss watch ?
    If I missed any company then go ahead and add it.
    You might say Oris is above Tissot or Hamilton is above and other but all these are pretty much in the entry level sections on the Swiss makers.
    All using standard ETA movement and if I am not mistaking is owned by Swatch.

    So which is your favorite ?
    My collection

    Rolex Submariner 16610 Caliber 3135
    Rolex Daytona 116520 Caliber 4130

    I like Oris for their divers, Movado for their dress watches, and Hamilton for basically everything else including dress watches, I am seriously considering their new Intra-matic. My toss up is to get a new watch with old timey looks (Intra-matic or Tissot visiodate) or just get a vintage Omega Seamaster, Loniges, Vulcain cricket etc...

    I was gifted a museum dial and I like it well enough for a dress watch, but I LOVE my hamilton jazzmaster, plan on owning a few more hamiltons!

    off all those, i will choose Oris. they are do make some great divers and sport watches.
    most of the newer Oris are using the slightly modified SW movements, though they do have some in house lately.
    i dont think they belong to the swatch group.

    Tissot and Hamilton do make some nice dress watches, but i do prefer frederique constant if i m looking for a dress watch; particularly the FC-710.
    I like my money right where I can see it: strapped to my wrist.

    Oris for Dive and Sport watches. Hamilton and certain higher end Tissots for Dress, office watches.

    I wouldnt consider Frederique Constant an entry level swiss brand. They make nice dress watches but the price tag is nearly double that of a Hamilton when it comes to automatics.

    I love Hamilton for everything except divers, I'd have to tip my hat to Oris there.

    I'm not sure that Oris qualifies an entry level swiss watch, maybe a bit more towards mid-level. I like Tissot for sport watches, Hamilton for casual and dress. I don't like Movado at all, never did.
