Tissot watches have been a leader in watch innovation since 1853. Tissot was known to offer good quality and elegantly designed timepieces at very attractive prices. Over the years, Tissot watches have been instrumental in designing some of the most technologically creative timepieces in history.
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 over the years.
Some of Tissot's triumphs over 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 completely wooden case). Tissot uses the best movements (from ETA SA Manufacture Horlogère Suisse), the highest quality materials (316L steel, 18K gold, titanium) and scratch-proof glasses (sapphire crystal--at least 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 over 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." Today the company is represented in a variety of sporting fields by English soccer star Michael Owen, IndyCar driver Danica Patrick, and MotoGP world champion Nicky Hayden. Today, Tissot is a member of the Swatch Group, the world's largest watch producer and distributor.
Looks good, light weight and easy to wear, makes it easy to just leave it on.
Highly recommended for anybody looking for a rugged diver watch that is more refined than the Seiko but less expensive than the other Swiss divers.
I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a unique-yet-tasteful everyday watch.
Beautiful watch, dosnt feel heavy on my wrist at all, the silicone wrist band is soft but rugged looking and allows for putting the watch on with one hand so easy. Read morePublished 2 months ago by shack

I've only had this watch for a week but so far I highly enjoy it. The white indicators are very crisp in contrast to the black dial so it's very easy to read. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Ryan Kinsella
