Swissmatic 19 Jewel?

Post by DBCooper » Tue Apr 16, 2019 4:40 pm

What's the deal with the Swissmatic 19 Jewel automatic. Thinking about grabbing a Tissot for my grandson. Anyone here got an opinion on it. I'm out of the loop gentlemen. :)

Just when I was getting used to the Powermatic 80, here comes the Swissmatic.

As far as I know, the Swissmatic is a half-step above those Swatch autos from about five years back; they're both entirely machine-made and are intended pretty much as entry level autos. Unfortunately, I can't bring much to the table here regarding accuracy, as I've yet to talk to anyone who owns a watch with a Swissmatic.

I do really like the Powermatic 80, which in this context, doesn't mean a lot. But I do think the Swissmatic is intended as an "entry" auto, akin to an NH35 or whatnot.

Appreciate the feedback guys. I saw these Tissot autos the other day over at Joma for 199 bucks. Don't want to go too far out there for my bonehead grandson :lol:

It’s an ETA C15.111 renamed for Tissot. Art was right Ana’s wrong as the base caliber is a Sistem 51 or ETA C10.111

Not a bad movement in my opinion.
