Still not convinced? Here's what our customers say.

"A vintage Tissot I bought developed a fault just after I bought it so I asked for a repair to be carried out. An honest appraisal concluded that it was not fixable because Tissot no longer provide spare parts. I was impressed that the watch was returned without a bodge being done, which some companies might have, and the report provided enabled me to obtain a full refund on the purchase price."

"I sent my vintage Tissot PR516 GL to RBP for a service and a new crystal to be fitted - little did I know what a task I was setting them! The OE crystals are now impossible to source it would appear, and Jonathon moved heaven and earth to source a suitable replacement. I was kept updated throughout the repair process, and now have my watch back, looking transformed and running flawlessly."

Tissot maintenance and care tips

Setting the time.

If you need to change the time on your watch, it is advised to avoid manually doing so during the times of 10pm and 2am. This could interfere with the setting of your watch as this is when the date is automatically due to change.

Tissot winding.

It is also advised that you do not deliberately shake a self-winding watch to wind it. This movement will be ineffective and could potentially damage your watch.

Tissot recommends for maximum performance of your timepiece that users wind their watches before they reach the end of their power reserve.

If your mechanical watches have manual winding – it may need to be wound daily. This process will give your watch enough sufficient power to function correctly. If you are manually winding your watch, you must do this by turning the crown clockwise as far as it will go. This must be done gently; therefore, it is advised not to force it when it reaches this point. By putting too much pressure on your timepiece, you may be damaging the movement. At Repairs By Post, we provide Tissot watch repair which will have your watch back up and running in no time at all.

If you are the owner of a self-winding mechanical watch, it will have an additional mechanism which will allow it to be automatically wound through the natural movement of the wrist.

If your watch has stopped or not worn for several days, this may mean it must be rewound using the crown. This will ensure the watch continues to function during periods of low activity (e.g. when sleeping).

It is advised that 20 turns of the crown are essential to provide your watch with plenty of energy. Keep in mind that the power reserve of a self-winding mechanical watch can vary depending on the movement of its wearer’s wrist.

CLEANING A TISSOT WATCH

If you are cleaning any type of watch, care should be taken. Tissot metal and rubber bracelets and water resistant cases can be cleaned using a toothbrush. The process for cleaning a Tissot watch is relatively simple, and the Tissot official website recommends using a little bit of soapy water and drying with a soft cloth.

A Tissot watch should always be cleaned after contact with seawater. In this case, you should always rinse your Tissot watch with fresh water. Like every watch brand, to keep your Tissot watch in pristine condition, it is recommended to avoid chemicals and cosmetics. Make sure that when you are wearing your Tissot watch that you are avoiding contact with solvents, detergents, fragrances and cosmetics.

TISSOT SERVICE AND BATTERY LIFE

The battery life of a Tissot watch is between two and five years, this is the average for most watch brands. This is variable depending on the type of watch and the amount of energy required by its various functions. It is always advised to send your watch away for a Tissot Service.

The great thing about this brand is that there are no guessing games when it comes to battery life. Tissot watches have a battery EOL indicator which stands for “End of Life”. This means that when the second hand begins to jump in four-second intervals, it is time for your watch to be sent away for watch maintenance. At Repairs By Post, we provide Tissot battery replacement.

TISSOT WATCH DAMAGE

Timepieces are fragile pieces of jewellery which can be damaged if they are exposed to extreme conditions. If your watch undergoes violent impact, Repairs By Post recommend that your watch is checked by a member of our watch specialist team.

Watches can also be sensitive to thermal impacts; therefore it is advised that when wearing your Tissot watch that you avoid exposing your watch to extreme temperatures that are above 60°C or below 0°C.

If your watch is exposed to a sudden change in temperature, for example, a sauna or diving into cold water after exposure to the sun, it could damage the movement of your watch.

WATER RESISTANCE FOR TISSOT WATCHES

Water resistance is added to protect your watch. However, it may wear off over time; therefore, you should always be careful with your water-resistant timepiece. To keep your watch safe in the water, DO NOT use pushers while you still emerge in water.

If you watch is certified as water resistant, to avoid water penetration that could result in a break in the mechanics of your watch, it is essential that you do not use pushers when the watch is in contact with water.

There is one exception to this rule. If you own the Tissot Sea-Touch model. This model is specifically designed to be used underwater.

TISSOT WATCH STRAPS REPLACEMENT

At Repairs By Post, we can replace the straps of multiple watch brands including Tissot watch straps. Leather watch straps can be maintained by avoiding contact with water or sweat.

TISSOT BATTERY DIED

Once you watch reaches the time to have its battery replaced, it is telling you that it needs to be sent away for watch repair. Your watch should be sent for maintenance as soon as possible as it will avoid the risk of any leakage. This could damage the movement of your watch, and that is why we recommend not leaving a completely discharged battery in your watch.

TISSOT METAL WATCH BAND CARE

It is not uncommon for stainless steel bands to develop rust due to some corrosion or perspiration that may accumulate between the band’s segments.

Cleaning method

Rust can be avoided by wiping off moisture, sweat or dirt with a soft cloth when necessary. TISSOT stainless steel watches can be washed easily apply neutral detergent with a small amount of water. If there is a heavy stain on your watch, use a toothbrush which will remove them. We recommend after washing, to wipe the gaps of the band segments with a towel and dry the entire watch thoroughly.

TISSOT LEATHER WATCH STRAP CARE

A leather band is more susceptible to discolouration and deterioration from moisture, sweat, and direct sunlight than metal bands/bracelets. Leather straps may tear or strap colours fade.

Avoid wearing a watch with a leather band while bathing, swimming and working with water even if the watch itself is water-resistant. Also, take care when wearing a watch with a light-coloured band, as stains will be more visible.

Cleaning method

Leaving your watch open to sudden changes of temperature can lead to damage, when not being worn keep your timepiece in a cool dark place, such as a drawer. Avoid leaving it in direct sunlight at temperatures above 60 degrees cause damage to the mechanism.

History of Tissot watches

This is one watch brand with time on their side. Tissot was founded mid-nineteenth century in a small town in Le Locle. Tissot was born in the heart of Swiss watchmaking and has created rich and fascinating history.

This brand was founded on July 1st, 1853, by Charles-Félicien Tissot. Tissot was originally the fitter of gold cases, in a company founded by Comptoir Ch. Félicien Tissot & Fils, with his son Charles-Emile Tissot who was a watchmaker.

During this period, Tissot worked as a Comptoir d’établissage. This consisted of a network of independent workers who were highly specialised in watch design. The wrist-watch had not taken center stage at this point, and Tissot timepieces were sold as pocket watches, luxurious pendant watches and complication watches.

These watches were made in Switzerland and then shipped to be distributed in the United States. The US was Tissot’s first market and then it was followed by Russia, who later became the primary outlet for the brand.

Throughout the years, Tissot has been a pioneer in elements of this sector and have created some very iconic models which were leaders in innovation at their peak:

1930

TISSOT ANTIMAGNÉTIQUE

In 1930 Tissot created the world’s first non-magnetic wrist-watch, breaking the boundaries of the watchmaking industry.

This same year Tissot and Omega merged to form the first Swiss watchmaking association, the SSIH (Société Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogère).

1917

The brand became a limited company which was soon to take on the world’s biggest watch brands.

1951

TISSOT NAVIGATOR

Tissot truly became a watchmaking pioneer when it created the world’s first self-winding wrist-watch with 24 time zones displayed without manipulation.

1965

TISSOT PR 516

This was the year Tissot created Particularly Robust (PR) with the world’s first registered bracelet with holes.

1971

TISSOT ASTROLON

Tissot was the creator of the world’s first plastic mechanical watch. The plastic mechanical watch solved the recurring problem of oil, as it is equipped with the “Sytal” system (Tissot auto-lubrication system).

1985

TISSOT ROCKWATCH

Going in a different direction of innovation, Tissot created the world’s first wrist-watch with a case made entirely of natural stone (granite and other stones).

1986

TISSOT TWOTIMER

Tissot created the ultimate hybrid in 1986 with a watch that had analogue and digital time with seven functions operated via a single crown. This was the very first of its kind, proving that Tissot was continually challenging their competitors in the watch design industry.

1989

TISSOT WOODWATCH

Tissot created the ultimate hybrid in 1986 with a watch that had analogue and digital time with seven functions operated via a single crown. This was the very first of its kind, proving that Tissot was continually challenging their competitors in the watch design industry.

1998

The group called SMH (Swiss Corporation for Microelectronics and Watchmaking Industries Ltd.) becomes The Swatch Group in. From 1996, the management of Tissot is entrusted to François Thiébaud.

1999

TISSOT T-TOUCH

Tissot was one of the first brands to create a Swiss tactile watch with new instrumental functions (compass, altimeter, barometer, temperature…).

2014

TISSOT T-TOUCH SOLAR

Over the past few years, ’ solar power has taken the watch industry by storm and Tissot have helped lead in this movement. While many watch brands are only now launching their solar-powered pieces, Tissot created the world’s first tactile watch powered by solar energy back in 2014.
