I was getting some watch batteries replaced at a local watch maker a few months back when the guy told me an interesting story. First, this fellow trained and was qualified as a watch maker in Switzerland years ago, so he knows his stuff when it comes to Swiss watches. I asked him about Tag watches, particularly in comparison to a Tissot that I bough a couple of years ago. Here is what he said, as best as I can recall.

"Know what the difference is between the guts of your Tissot and a Tag? No difference. Tissot makes watches for Tag under an exclusive wholesale arrangement that Tissot is in the Swiss courts to get out of. Tag takes the watches that Tissot builds and resells them at a massive profit. If you want a great watch and want to save a lot of money at the same time, buy a Tissot".

I was quite shocked, but he was quite adamant.
