All About Tissot Special Collections Watches
History of Tissot
Since its inception in 1853, Tissot has always managed to delight its customers by unleashing enriching experiences and delightful watches. Catering to a high-end market, they had redefined watchmaking tradition and combined it with a passion for creating capable designs and luxury styles. The father-son duo, Charles-Felicien and Charles-Emile, started Tissot to craft their progressive designs with innovative watchmaking abilities that had been passed down over the years.
While Tissot was established in a small town called Le Locle in the Swiss lands, it took a flight to other parts of the world, specifically Russia, when Charles-Emile visited the court of the Tzar. They were all set to satisfy royals and admirers of luxury. Eventually, after making it big in Russia, the brand made its presence felt in the USA and Latin America. There was a huge demand for luxury watches there, which Tissot catered to with their breathtaking technologies and remarkable designs.
Tissot’s history and innovative capabilities continue to lure watch connoisseurs even today. Tissot has an incredible history, which ranges from its inception to expansion. The company merged with Omega SA in 1930 and formed SSIH (Societe Suisse Pour l’Industrie Horlogerie). The Tissot-Omega merger watches were unique and collectors still seek models from this range.
In 1983, the SSIH merged with ASUAG to form SSIH-ASUAG, wherein ASUAG was the holding company that supplied to the watch industry. Over time, they named the company SMH (Société Suisse de Microélectronique et Horlogerie), which lasted from 1983 to 1985. In 1998, the company was part of the Swatch Group. It was at this time that the brand acquired the name Tissot SA. While the company’s headquarters remained in Le Locle, they did explore the world and establish a global presence. Tissot was present across 160 countries, by this time. Under the Swatch Group’s manifesto, they attained the mid-range market category.
During the expansion stage, Tissot also became the official timekeeper for several events. They were associated with several sporting platforms, owing to its robust and tough appearance.
- It was first declared the official timekeeper during the 1938 ski races in Villars-sur-Ollon. Tissot watches were used to calculate the downhill timing for skiing.
- In 1957, they were used as timekeepers at the Davis Cup.
Tissot attained prominence as timekeepers, thanks to their association with the Davis Cup. They went on to become official partners for timekeeping for the major world championships in cycling, motorcycling, fencing, and ice-hockey. They are also the title sponsors for the Formula One teams' Lotus, Sauber and Renault. Once Tissot became official timekeepers, Tissot further improved the accuracy and precision aspects of their watches. Hence, the recent wristwatches are more in tune with the precision needs of sporting events.
The Special Editions of Tissot
Since the time of its inception, Tissot has been carving a unique niche for itself by creating watches with cutting-edge technology. So, we will take you through some of the classic pieces designed by Tissot, which have left and are sure to leave a mark on their owners.
The Banana Centenary Edition
Inspired by the 1916 Banana watch named Banana owing to its rectangular curved case, this watch edition was released to celebrate the brand’s innovative designs and inspirational themes. It is one of the finest theme watches for those who want to add a unique touch to their collection. Like all Tissot watches, this re-edition also underwent resistance tests to check its tolerance for high impacts and pressure. The re-edition was tested against the high-impact, real-life situation to make it durable and reliable. It is a heritage watch, and takes the shape of your wrist, making it an aesthetic piece.
This vintage Swiss watch by Tissot is still a collector’s favorite. The unique aspect of its design lies in the fact that the case is made of stone, basically alpine granite. It was introduced first in the US markets before it was taken to Switzerland. The highlight of the watch lies in the cavities that were made along the movement and dial face. The straps were added to the watch in a way that could reduce the overall stress on the piece.
Alpine granite had an impactful role to play in the initial design. However, the later designs included stones such as alabaster, aventurine, and picture jasper. The Rockwatch was embossed along with the backplate. The Pearl Watch, which is a Rock watch, enclosed in a case made of mother-of-pearl, is a beautiful variant of this Swiss watch brand. t
