Tissot V8 Swissmatic Watch Review
Description
We love both the looks and affordability of the Tissot V8 Swissmatic Watch, that’s for sure. But to be quite more critical of its quality, we can say that there a lot more better option along the $450 price point. However, with a few more refining of features, the V8 Swissmatic is for sure a truly affordable choice for the perfect gentleman’s timepiece.

Pros

Aethetic variety is gold in the V8 Swissmatic watch—and who wouldn’t want options in picking their watch right? The dial of this watch can either be black or white, while you have the option to choose a silver, black, or blue bezel. Aside from the assortment, the beauty of the watch is undeniable, even under careful scrutiny of the slightly huge casing. With it easily fitting any outfit in any occasion, either casual or dressy, it definitely is a great timepiece for its budget-friendly price.

Cons

Tissot’s excellence isn’t questionable, especially with its long history of successful watch releases, hence, making every tinge of oversight in its pieces quite disappointing. For the V8 Swissmatic, a slight misalignment of the minute indices with the bezel was a bit of a let-down. Comfortability-wise, the bottom part of the case may prove uncomfortable too, as its edges that are bit sharp.
