Tissot T-Classic Powermatic: For them about to get dressed

VARYING OPINIONS: TOWARD ONE REALITY Staying aloof safely from both the extremes, the best way to portray Tissot is – they are mid-range watches that are priced lower than premium Swiss brands like JLC, Lange or Longines – even Rolex or Omega – but higher than ordinary fashion brands that try to copy the Swiss
