It’s quite surprising to know that the Swissmatic movement is machine-made (mostly) and is an evolved version of the Swatch Sistem51; essentially an ETA caliber C10111. More about that
It was quite a big gap. Ideally, it’s the Seiko 5 Vs Tissot Swissmatic discussion that should be here; however, it is worth knowing at this stage the ways to choose your watch. It might just make you choose between those two under discussion even better! So here it is before we go back to
