If you need to gift a reasonably well-to-do person (especially a man), a watch, you just can’t go wrong with gifting a Tissot.
The Tissot is the Mercedes amongst watches. It is luxury personified; luxury that you can wear, luxury that you can show off, luxury that displays the time and more, in style. A Tissot is luxury that says you’ve arrived. A Tissot signifies that you occupy one of top rungs in the social ladder. A man or women wearing a Tissot is no ordinary person.
So, when our 78-year old company CEO Jatin Mehta decided to step down and retire in favour of his foreign educated, highly qualified son, myself and my colleagues working directly under Mr. Mehta senior, decided to gift him a watch and naturally, nothing but a Tissot would do. Question was, which model?
I was nominated to search the net and decide on an appropriate model. Once everyone approved the choice and the price was known, we would each contribute so the purchase could be made. The initial idea was to purchase from a Tissot shop.
After spending several hours on the net, I short-listed four Tissot watches from which, my colleagues selected the Tissot T-Classic Tradition Perpetual Calendar T063.637.16.037.00 T0636371603700 Men’s Watch. This was an awesome timepiece that not only displayed the time of the day, it also displayed the month, day of the week and date of the month and it did so very elegantly so that the user did not have to squint at the watch to see the date.
When I saw the Tissot T-Classic Tradition Perpetual Calendar T063.637.16.037.00 T0636371603700 Men’s Watch, it was at a website called the https://www.citywatches.in and the page was https://www.citywatches.in/product/tissot-t-classic-tradition-perpetual-calendar-t063-637-16-037-00-t0636371603700-mens-watch/ The retail price of the watch was mind-blowing Rs 52,298.00 but the citywatches site was selling it for an astonishing Rs 23,889.00 i.e. over 50% discount. Our first instinct was that the watch was a fake.
I checked the site, the reviews, the warranty offered etc. and everything seemed to check out. No red flags anywhere. So, we decided to go ahead and place the order for the Tissot T-Classic Tradition Perpetual Calendar T063.637.16.037.00 T0636371603700 Men’s Watch. It took a couple of days to actually place the order because we had to first collect the money.
Once the money was in hand, I placed the order and the watch arrived some 7 days later. It was in a cute little Tissot box. The time, date etc. were already set and box also contained an international warranty card. There, now Mr. Jatin Mehta could go anywhere in his retirement and if the need arose, he could get the watch repaired anywhere in the World.
The Tissot T-Classic Tradition Perpetual Calendar T063.637.16.037.00 T0636371603700 Men’s Watch was presented to him during the retirement party and we could see that he was quite impressed by it. The Tissot was a watch that matched his status. So, if you ever have to gift a watch to someone important, the Tissot is the watch you should aim for.
