Charles-Félicien Tissot and his son established Tissot, a Swiss luxury watchmaking company, in Le Locle, Switzerland in 1853. Today, one of the prominent watch collections the brand released is Tissot T-Race.
Tissot is known for its innovative designs and techniques. It’s the pioneer in building watches that were made out of: plastic – the Idea 2001 released in 1971; stone – the Alpine granite Rock Watch launched in 1985; mother of pearl – the Pearl introduced in 1987, and wood – the Wood watch launched in 1988.
In 1853, Tissot took its first step toward success with the first pocket watch with two time zones. By the year 1929, the company was able to produce their very first anti-magnetic watch.
Until its collaboration with Omega in 1930, Tissot was a member of The Swatch Group Ltd. since 1983. The Swatch Group Ltd. was considered as the largest watch producer as well as a watch distributor in the world.
Actually, Tissot is an official timekeeper for many world championships, including sports such as cycling, motorcycling, fencing and ice hockey. For example, both the 1957’s Davis Cup and the 1938’s downhill skiing in Switzerland used Tissot watches. Besides that, Tissot is also a key sponsor of the Formula One racing team Lotus, Renault, Sauber (the Swiss national team), the Chinese Basketball Association, and so forth.
Tissot T-Race, the Tissot T Sport watch collection, comes with various watches for men and women. The selection consists of Tissot T Race Cycling, Tissot Chronograph, Tissot Touch Aluminium, Chronograph Lady, and so on. Also, there are many other models that are accessible in various colour combinations.
In the 1960s, Tissot joined the world of motor-sport. And in 2001, the brand became the official timekeeper of MotoGP. Since then, they have been launching limited versions of Tissot MotoGP watches each year.
Lately, at the Baselworld 2018, they introduced their latest Tissot T Race MotoGP. It includes the Tissot T Race MotoGP Limited Edition, Tissot T Race MotoGP Special Edition, and the Tissot T Race MotoGP Automatic Limited Edition.
Now let’s take a quick glance through these Tissot MotoGP watches models:

For specifications, the Tissot men’s watch has an ETA G10 quartz chronograph movement and is water-resistant up to 100m. Also, the Tissot watch carries a masculine appearance.
