Baselworld – The Brands / Tissot

Cycling is a sport of endurance and speed that touches many people from those looking for a healthy and environmentally friendly way to travel to enthusiasts all the way to professionals. It is one of the reasons Tissot has been involved in the world of cycling for over 50 years. This watch is inspired by the discipline and dedicated to one of its most popular races, the Tour de France, for which Tissot is the Official Timekeeper. It has an unmistakeably athletic design and bears the yellow and black colours of the race, with its official logo engraved on the case back.

The Tissot T-Race Cycling Tour de France Special Edition has a fitting aerodynamic and ergonomic design. The large hands make time precise and easy to read. It has a sporty dial with three counters on a black tar effect background, illustrating the roads. Details of the bicycles, such as the fork in the frame, are reflected in the bracelet and lugs, while the outside of the dial and the tachymeter bezel represent the wheel that is set on a carbon ring. Features go all the way to brake levers integrated into the pushers and the cassette on the case back and on the crown. The back of the bracelet reminds us of the chain. It’s time to grab your bike, your watch and be on your way!

The Tissot T-Race MotoGPTM Automatic Limited Edition 2017 acknowledges the successful partnership between Tissot and MotoGP with a watch that has a winning attitude. It earns the first place on the podium with its rose gold PVD case. Its golden attributes also emphasize some of the iconic bike features of the watch such as the dashboard counters on the carbon like a dial, the footrest pushers, and the rear suspension rode illustrated in the bracelet’s attachment to the case. The dynamism and speed the watch is inspired by, are reflected in the tyre tread bracelet. No details are left out. They go all the way to the automatic movement, visible through the transparent rim-like back case. The brake disk, as well as having its place on the bezel, is also portrayed on the oscillating mass, with the lines illustrating further tyre treads. It would take a lot of breaking to stop this piece from winning. It is an exceptional watch, with only 2017 pieces like it. As a collector’s item, it comes in a special helmet box. It’s time to bring out your winning attitude to earn this watch!
