    Victorinox - Tissot - Raymond Weil

    I have a Victorinox. It's a good watch for range 350$
    in Quartz

    And then I have a friend. This friend offer me his Tissot, Le Locle Edition
    for 400$
    Automatic Swiss

    Welll for that range I guess tissot is killing it.
    Then always on my mind, this Raymond Weil Maestro Automatic Open Heart
    Thats so freaking cool.
    But you know I'm newbee in this watch stuffs

    Previously I post about Ingersoll - Frederique Constant - Raymond Weil
    Then I think FC is great then I search deeper, FC was acquired in 2017 by Citizen Holdings of Tokyo, Japan.

    So I search again for this RW story, and this is a brand from Swiss that independently stand for itself.
    Nice

    What you guys think??
    Super Thankyou
    I love to hear you guys share about watches.

    That's a low price for a LeLocle and a high price for most Victorinox quartz watches (the higher end quartz stuff they have does cost more, but they make good stuff.)

    Victorinox and Tissot both have a range of products at a range of prices. I would personally prefer Victorinox over Tissot most of the time.

    Raymond Weil is priced a little higher and is currently independent but the actual Raymond Weil (the brand founder) died just a few years ago. Lots of brands in that range are being bought out or trying to find a buyer.

    Citizen is the largest watch company in the world, and does not micro-manage their subsidiaries. They pretty much let them run themselves. They also own La Joux-Perret (Pretty high end Swiss movement manufacturer) as well as Bulova. Frederique Constant/Alpina/Ateliers de Monaco being part of Citizen group does not bother me one bit and I own an Alpina.

    Omega is owned by Swatch group-- it's not like Omega watches and Swatch watches are the same thing
    Choose a job you love, and you'll never work a day in your life because that field isn't hiring.

    Wow thats veryyy greaatt thought of you.
    I thought RW is cool brand, with independent company status.
    But the price is i think personally overpriced.

    I actually more familiar with Seiko for Japan watches.
    I thought citizen is like low, but damn i was wrong.
    It was great watch brand and company.

    Yeahh swatch group has more swiss high end watches i think
    Longiness
    Omega
    Blancpain

    Super thanks you for your thoughts!

    I think RW is costly, relative to its peers.

    I am not impressed by Tissot

    $350 is very high for a VSA quartz (and I like and own a few VA)

    My inclination is towards VSA mostly because of an emotional connection and they make darn good watches. Like Bulova, you get a lot of watch for little money.

    Unless the parent company is meddling in the affairs of its "children", I don't get too hung up and who owns what. I own a few Glycines, yet Invicta is not my friend. I'm still keeping my Glycines.
    I do not have a watch collection - I have an accumulation of watches
