    Mathey-Tissot, Saint Honore, or Ferre Milano

    I have been doing some research into lesser-known Swiss-made ladies watches that are inexpensive -- that is, under $500. I have looked into loads of brands (Charmex, Jowissa, Alpina, as just a sampling), but they either don't have what I'm looking for (two-tone - NOT rose gold - seriously, what's with the rose gold? why so much of it?) or it's just a bit too expensive. I have narrowed my choice down to Mathey-Tissot Lucrezia or Artemis, Saint Honore Charisma, or a Ferre Milano. Any thoughts on those three brands? I couldn't find anything at all in this Forum on the latter two brands, so very interested to hear from anyone who knows about them. Saint Honore Are they scams?

    A well known TV shopping channel in the UK sells Mathey-Tissot so that alone would make me a little cautious.

    I've only heard of the Mathey-Tissot (unrelated to Tissot). They seem to be doing some "homage" designs lately. Does this one remind anyone of the Piaget Polo S right down to the bracelet?

    Consider Frederique Constant if you're shopping for a Swiss made ladies watch that comes from a respected manufacture and won't break the bank.

    Did you look into Raymond Weil? They can be bought very inexpensively used, sometimes in perfect like-new condition on eBay.
