The Tissot Luxury collection perfectly combines exquisite design with automatic movements. The many details strengthened by the contrast between polished and satin surfaces, are what give this watch an undeniable richness. This extension is a great manifestation of what the brand stands for: luxury at an inexpensive price.
For more than 150 years, Tissot has embodied the innovation and tradition of Swiss watch-making. Based in the Neuchâtel area of the Jura Mountains, in Le Locle, Switzerland, Charles-Félicien Tissot and his son Charles-Emile created the watch making company Tissot in 1853. Whether in the technology of its movements, in the research for special materials or in the very functions of the watch itself, Tissot’s engineers and watchmakers have developed pioneering timepieces through the years.
Some of Tissot’s triumphs through the years include the the Idea 2001 (the world’s first plastic watch) released in 1971, the Rock watch (which set the timepiece’s movement in a stone case made from Swiss Alps granite) in 1985, and the Wood watch from 1988 (with a fully wooden case). Tissot uses the most efficient movements (from ETA SA Manufacture Horlogère Suisse), the very best quality materials (316L steel, 18K gold, titanium) and scratch-proof glasses (sapphire crystal–no less than 2500 Vickers).
The company has been involved with high profile sports events since 1974 when they sponsored a racing car in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, France. Since then Tissot’s timepieces have been chosen as official timekeepers for world championships in cycling, motorcycling, fencing and ice hockey. And Tissot is currently the the official watch and timekeeper of NASCAR.
Tissot timepieces have been worn by a bevy of celebrities through the years–including Grace Kelly, Elvis Presley and Nelson Mandela–and James Stewart’s character L.B. Jefferies wore a Tissot timepiece in Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window.” As of late the company is represented in plenty of sporting fields by English soccer star Michael Owen, IndyCar driver Danica Patrick, and MotoGP world champion Nicky Hayden. As of late, Tissot is a member of the Swatch Group, the world’s largest watch producer and distributor.
