Switzerland - 2400
I have purchased a Tissot watch 4 years ago & it stopped working after 1 year.
I returned with the watch & the problem was 'fixed" on the spot.
1 year later the problem returned (same problem) & again I was assured that the problem was fixed.
This happen twice more & only then was the watch sent back to the importer, who said that the guaranty was up & that the mechanism is defective.
This was when I realized that the reason the watch wasn't sent back before, despite recurring problems was that the company/store/importer prefered to find Ad-Hoc solutions as long as the guaranty was in place & only after it was void did they check the mechanism.
I'm very disappointed as Tissot is supposedly a reliable watch maker & here I find that their watchs & guaranties have A SHORTER LIFETIME THEN A SIMPLE NO-BRAND watch.
I bought a Tissot T-Race for 675 CADs, and after five days I regretfully discovered that my new watch is lagging behind. For every 24 hours, it lags by 72 seconds, that is almost a minute and a half per day. I have a collection of 16 other watches, half of which are much cheaper than this Tissot, and none of them had such a problem during the six years I had them.
I had obtained one Tissot Watch through redeeming reward points available in my account with AMEX. This was ordered during Oct 2008 and within 3 months I noticed that the watch wasnt performing as per my expectations as it started running slow. I immediately complained to AMEX to which they responded back and agreed for incurring repair. They also did that, but immediately after running for next 3-4 months it again started functioning irratically and all of a sudden one of the needle in chronograph dial has also come out. Therefore I again called up AMEX to find out the dealers in Delhi/India who could undertake such repairs, but AMEX couldnt provide me with any valid solutions. Now I feel totally dissapointed and disgusted as even after owning a so called valuable and reputed time piece it failed and more so I dont know where to take it for repairs. On a second thought I think Indian watches are far more better than these so called swiss made watches who claim for something like lifetime guarantee, for instance my dad gifted me a Titan watch in early 90's which is still functioning very well and which needed no repairs/servicing so far except for changing batteries.
I got a rs.11, 500/- worth tissot watch from johnson, cp, delhi on 29.07.05. After 2 and 1/2 (as if the watch knows the that it's warrenty is upto 2-years) years suddenly the watch stoped working and I had to send it for repair to calcutta as I am from bhubaneswar, and they are charging me rs.5, 000/- (almost half of the price of the watch) with 1 more year warrenty. Is it a joke... I asked them I don't want the watch repair. And stop fooling people that it is company that produce quality watch.
It's a bitter experience, these company are purely cheats. They spend all the money on brand - building and sell people garbage. Beaware of them. Blody... Swish... Watch. F*k of your company and your third-rated watches.
I bought my Tissot T Touch 5 month ago and touch function is stuck at the chrono mode. Just cant get it out of this mode digital display. Just woke up one day and it happened over night. I will see if warranty covers. But by the press I have been reading on this watch I suppose it will work for another 3 months and back to the same story...
I will keep you updated. If you looking for a reliable watch, stay clear from Tissot.
Beware... The watch industry has a little game they play with the "water resistiveness" of watches. As a firefighter and avid outdoorsman, I wanted a functional, good looking watch. I was shown the T Touch and amazed by the gadgets it has. After owning it for only 6 months, it died. I sent it in and they repaired it with no explanation of the problem. Just recently, at 2 years old, it began to spin backwards and had a blank LCD display. This occurred in Mexico while swimming/floating in the pool. I sent it in again and was told that it will be $320.00 to repair due to rust in the movement. I was not very happy and stated I was not going to pay this. After further discussion, they asked what I was doing with this watch when it broke. I told them and they replied "you can't do that with this watch". WHAT? It is rated to 50 mtrs, which they replied that this watch is splash proof only. Maybe I am naive, as I am not a true watch enthusiast, but I took its rating at face value. I figured 50 meters was 50 meters. They stated that if the watch were gently lowered in the water, it would be fine to 150', but once you moved your arm, it would allow water in and destroy this watch. I guess this is standard in the industry. This watch is geared toward the adventurous... take it skydiving, take it rock climbing, go hiking... but for the love of god... do not wash your hands with it. Now I have to make a choice.. spend the $300 to fix this paperweight or put that towards the TAG I should have bought in the first place. If you only wear this watch around town... it is great.. I loved it. If you don't sit behind a desk your entire life... I would reconsider. Google "T Touch problems" and you will see I am not the only one. I wish I had before paid that much for a watch that will sit in my drawer now...
I am a gadget freak. It is a good thing that I don't work for Sharper image and the like because I would certainly be insolvent. Anyway I get a Tissot T-touch Titanium for Christmas and love the watch. 3 months later it just quits. No problem probably jusart needs a battery.....I take it to the local watch guy to put a new battery and to my surprise he tells me he will not touch it and I need to send it to Tissot. So now I take it to the jewelry that sells them and they write up a ticket and send it to the factory. I am starting to feel a little fear because I can only imagine how much repairs could be for the watch and I am thankful it has a two year warranty. Four months.....yes....120 ndays later the jewelry store calls anbd tells me it is going to be 250 bucks for the repairs. Wow....could it be true that the factory itself doesn't know what their own warranty is? Lots of little red flags start popping up....I truly fear that my watch is a lemon...and that I will be in the local food lines before I know itbecause of the costly repairs it is sure to need. Ok after they quoted me the cost and after I told them it was under warranty about 30 ndays later I get the watch. I am hoping this is just a freak thing and it will keep on ticking like it should for years to come. Wrong!!!!!!! Three months later i am sending it back for the same problem and also one of the little buttons popped off somewhere and)) I need another one (this is a cosmetic problem..True to form and in line with my low expectations I get the watch back 4 months later along with a bill for $80 american dollars for the freakin cosmetic button part. I don't object because I want my watch back. Long story short my 2 year warranty equals a little over one year because I didn't have it for over eight months. Ok this brings me to the present. The other day my watch falls off my arm. Thank goodness it fell off at home because had it been at a ballgame or the airport or any other public place I probably wouldn't have noticed it missing for sometime. I am thinking that the pin gave out and figured this is one repair I can handle myself....WRONG!!!!!....the pin didn't fall out.....a piece of the titanium watch band clasp had dissapeared....the piece that holds the pin. I do not want to send it off for fear of a $200 bill and it taking 6 months to fix. I am now trying to see if I can just buy the part and fix it myself only to find that there is no website...no one on ebay...nowhere is this part available except thru...guess who....Tissot. Don't walk but do RUN away from this watch company....I have never been so disapointed in a watch or a watch company.....save your money and your sanity at the same time.
