Our Top Pick
In a hurry? Here is our top pick for a Tissot Pocket Watch:
Why We Love Tissot
Tissot was founded in Switzerland back in the mid 1800s and has since been considered one of the pioneers of the Swiss made watch industry. This is just one of the things that sets the brand apart from the rest.
There are a whole world of reasons that we think Tissot is the best brand of pocket watch but what really attracts us is the quality. Tissot is considered to be a mid-range watch brand so you aren’t getting something cheap that is going to break easily. You’ll always have excellent quality but you won’t be forking out the prices you would need to for a more high-end brand. Some might say that you are getting the best of both worlds.
What’s more, Tissot is a Swiss watch maker that offers diversity among the watch lover community. Whether you are someone who is looking for their very first luxury watch or consider yourself to be something of a connoisseur. Tissot will have something that will catch your eye.
The quality we talked about is perfectly demonstrated in the quality of the materials used for Tissot timepieces. No expense is spared in sourcing high quality materials that are both aesthetically pleasing as well as durable. If all of that wasn’t enough, you will also notice the intricacy involved in the watches which translates into a timepiece that boasts amazing accuracy; something that many brands cannot easily lay claim to.
In fact, the accuracy of the Tissot ‘made in Switzerland’ watches is so perfect that the company has been chosen by some of the world’s most well-known organizations to be the official timekeeper. This includes establishments like the NBA, Moto GP, and the Tour de France; that is certainly something that the creators of these Swiss made timepieces can be proud of.
Tissot Fine Pocket Watch Collection
When it comes to choosing a pocket watch, Tissot is one of the go-to brands for a lot of people, and as we have seen, it isn’t surprising. However, with such a varied and beautiful range to choose from, you may be left wondering which is the best Swiss made Tissot watch. Well, we have been taking a closer look at some of the timepieces and have picked out the following five as being some of the most superior.
Origin of the WatchOrigin of the WatchTissot Unisex Adult Bridgeport Lepine Stainless Steel Pocket Watch
Our first example of what the best pocket watch brand has to offer is this beautiful stainless steel timepiece. One of the most important things to point out about this pocket watch is that, being made from this durable material, you are getting something of the utmost quality. Stainless steel is often used in the jewelry and accessories industry thanks to its longevity; it doesn’t mark and will remain looking shiny and new for many years. But not only this, it is also lightweight so your pocket watch isn’t going to weigh you down.
- Case size: 45mm, Case thickness: 10.47mm
- Swiss mechanical Movement, 316L Stainless Steel case with rose gold PVD coating, Mineral crystal, Arabic dial type

As well as being durable owing to the materials with which it is made, the Lepine stainless steel pocket watch is also designed for those who live an active lifestyle. Modern life is fast paced and you never know when you are going to get caught in a storm – literally! But with a 3 bar water resistance, the watch will easily withstand a shower as well as a spot of swimming. There is also a handy counter located at 6 o’clock.
This amazingly elegant pocket watch comes presented in the classic Tissot gift box which is stylish and luxurious. Giving this as a gift will be just as much about the presentation as the watch. Moreover, this pocket watch boasts a design that is ultra modern while still giving a nod to the classic heritage that is Tissot.
Tissot Unisex Adult Lepine Brass Pocket Watch
Brass is one of the most durable materials on the planet and yet a lot of jewelry makers don’t use it in the right way and so it ends up looking less luxurious than it really is. However, being super experienced watchmakers in Switzerland, Tissot knows just what to do and the result is an immaculate looking pocket watch that will stay looking that way for years.
Not only is it an incredibly durable material but brass won’t lose its lustre and will resist scratches and scuffs far better than other metals. Moreover, it has a beautiful shine that makes the Lepine pocket watch stand out from the crowd.
This pocket watch operates using a Swiss mechanical movement giving you ultimate accuracy and reliability. It is no secret that Swiss made watches are always going to have the upper hand where precision is concerned but it is good to know that you have a watch that isn’t going to let you down. What’s more, once wound, this beautiful pocket watch has a 46 hour power reserve meaning that, unlike many similar watches, you won’t need to worry about winding it every day.
The aesthetic design is amazing and this watch is the perfect example of a modern take on a classic design. It features a clean and easy to read dial with roman numerals for that touch of elegance. There is a detachable chain allowing you to wear the watch in different ways and with an 11.99mm thick case, you can rest assured that this is a durable and well-made timepiece.
Tissot Unisex Adult Lepine Aluminum Pocket Watch

Unlike many other pocket watches, this one has a much more modern feel. For individuals who want to use a traditional timepiece without having to compromise on their style, this is the perfect solution. Coming in a beautiful black hue, the pocket watch sits on a detachable rope-like chain that offers diversity in the way you wear that watch. To top it all off, the Lepine Aluminum watch comes in a stunning Tissot gift box that feels just as high-end as the watch itself.
If you live an active lifestyle, then you need a watch that can stand up to the challenge and this is one of the many reasons we love this pocket watch. It benefits from water resistance up to 3 bar meaning that it can be submerged in up to 30m of water. This is ideal for showering and casual swimming but do keep in mind that deep water activities like diving will damage the watch.
Aluminum is a great choice of material for the modern pocket watch wearer as it offers a lightweight design without compromising on durability. You really will be getting the best of both worlds.
