    Tissot PRC 200 vs Hamilton Khaki vs Seiko (sarb, spirit)?

    I try to see both of those three in their own way, but kindly share your thoughts please.

    How does Tissot vs Hamilton compare in the quality of finish and how does those two compare to the finish and quality of sarb and spirit line of Seiko.

    Is Swiss made still so strong for you?

    I'd prefer a Seiko Spirit, please.

    I don't understand the comparison. You are asking about a specific Tissot model in comparison to several Hamilton Khaki models and an even larger number of Seiko models.

    I haven't owned the Tissot. But i've had a Hami Khaki Field auto and a SARB009. Very different watches, but both well made and i'd say fairly similar in terms of general quality of construction. I'd give the SARB the edge, only 'cause of the in-house movement. Very minimal fine adjustment on the bracelet, but from memory the Hami was the same.

    I think the Seikos will be better value-for-money but I've always been turned off by their thickness. I think that is their only flaw which is a shame because they're incredibly handsome watches. It it were my money, I would opt for a piece from the Hamilton Khaki line...and I did.



    However, the dial is a bit dull so if you're looking for a more creative piece, look at the officer model.

    I wanted to know how quality wise they stand out. I know there are many different models, but generally how you guys feel about the brands and those models.

    Yes. Seiko proportions are a bit on the wicked side. Otherwise great designs.
