Tissot and Movado are well-respected watch brands. They both make use of similar engineering and create very reliable quartz watches. However, working out which brand is the best or which one will work better for you can be hard.
We took a look at the history of these brands and two of their most popular watches – formal and every day – so that we could come to a balanced conclusion. Check out what we found below.
Tell Me More About Tissot
Charles F and Charles E Tissot founded Tissot in Switzerland back in 1853. It became a hugely popular brand in America and Russia within the first five years of trading. It soon sealed its fate as one of the most popular watch brands that would become a household name.
With such a large following and international reputation, Tissot has enjoyed huge popularity over the years. They even hold the title of Official Timekeeper for a myriad of sporting events – most notably Formula One Racing. With this type of backing, the company has created many popular sports editions.
One of the main reasons Tissot has been such a successful company is the accuracy of their watches. The company is part of the Swiss Watch Group and has been since the early ’80s. This move allows their timepieces to sell in over 160 different countries in the world.
Tell Me More About Movado
In 1881 Movado was known as LAI Ditescheim & Freres, but by 1905 it had become Movado – a name that means ‘always in motion.’
In 1983, North American Watch Corp purchased the company and began delivering watches to the American market – a decision that helped their popularity. They have continued to grow and have now purchased MVMT – another exciting watch brand.
Movado has remained so popular over the years because of its commitment to quality and attention to detail. The Movado Museum is their best-selling watch and offers a unique and fashionable design that keeps watch lovers interested.

Tissot’s Powermatic 80 not only boasts some of the best timekeeping capabilities on the market but also looks amazing. Made from stainless steel and offering a silver case with a blue dial, your watch is sure to turn heads.

The watch is water-resistant to 50m and uses sapphire crystal to reduce the risk of scratching.

If you are looking for a rugged, everyday watch, then Tissot has a range of great choices! Our favorite is the Tissot T-Race MotoGP Chronograph watch. It is a limited edition and comes with the motor-racing theme that Tissot is known for, because of the Formula One links. It has a transparent back with a gold and black theme so you can see the inner workings. The case is 45mm and over 16mm thick, which might feel bulky on your arm. However, if you love racing and watches, then this device is the ideal addition to your watch collection.

If you are looking for a watch that will look great at any formal event, then the Movado Defio is a great choice. It is made in stainless steel with the one dot design that Movado is well known for. The watch face is black, with a delicate balance of minimalist and stylishness.
The inner workings are also top-notch and will leave you feeling confident that the time is always accurate. Finally, with the 38mm case, sapphire crystal glass, and 30m of water resistance, the watch is durable.
If you are looking for a watch that will support your everyday life, fitness, and outdoor adventures, then the Movado BOLD is a great choice. It is a chronograph watch that manages to pack a lot of features into a minimalist design.
It offers a rugged appearance made from gunmetal stainless steel for the bracelet and gunmetal coloured screen and dials. KI mineral crystals cover the face to prevent scratches. The timekeeping is excellent so that you always know what time it is no matter where you are or what you are doing.

Which Brand is Better – Tissot or Movado?
It is clear to see that both brands offer fantastic and reliable watches and deserve their place as some of the most popular watch brands in the world – but which one is the best?
Tissot’s unique selling point is the fact that each of its watches offers the best timekeeping and reliability, allowing consumers to feel confident that the time on their wrist is always accurate. Their timepieces have well-crafted inner workings, highly sought-after by watch enthusiasts.
Movado’s popularity comes down to style and quality. They are uniquely designed, high-end pieces, and popular with watch collectors.
Ultimately, choosing either will leave you happy, but if you want a watch for the best style, then choose Movado and for the best technical reliability, choose Tissot.
