A leader in mid-range timepieces since 1853
Founded in 1853 by a father and son team, Tissot relies on precision and trust by sports organizations like the NBA to capture a significant market share.
An integral, risk-taking brand in a watch conglomerate
As part of the Swatch Group, Tissot is a brand that is part of the Group’s extensive portfolio.
Housed at the same level as Hamilton, above Swatch, and below ‘High Range’ watches such as Longines and Rado, it’s in a sweet spot of middle-income suburbia that wants to reward themselves with a quality, Swiss-made timepiece.
The pricing and prestige is enough to make a statement in any boardroom meeting, without breaking the bank account.
Tissot has been a risk-taker in watchmaking, experimenting with case materials to house their pieces such as the Pearl watch in 1987 and the Rock watch (below).
Sports is really their forte
As an official timekeeper for various world championships, there’s a lot of prestige involved within Tissot. The were part of many ski races, cycling events, fencing, ice hockey, to name a few.
With timing critical to any sport, where mere milliseconds can mean medal placement or none, accuracy is of the essence and Tissot delivers. With a range of watches and collections, such as the Tissot Couturier Automatic reviewed at WYCA, there is a piece that will speak to you.
22 Pieces to Inspire Your Next Purchase
Here are several Men’s and Women’s watches available today that you should consider adding to your collection:
Starting off with a curveball, the Savonnette isn’t a wristwatch at all. A pocket watch that embraces tradition and class, the quartz pocketwatch adds a sense of finesse that no wristwatch can beat.
The stainless steel case adds durability, and will be an attention grabber when you have it with a fine-tailored suit.
For the nostalgic side, the Savonnette comes in various designs, some with gold lining for that extra boost of personality. Pull out that cigar, sir. This one is a winner.
With a clean, easy-to-read white face, this quartz number has a 42mm case which is suitable for a wide range of wrists. It’s not a light-up piece but it is water-resistant up to 30m.
It’s simple, no-frills watch with a NATO strap. The Everytime has a scratch-resistant crystal, and can handle your typical bump and grinds.
I like how the hours has a zero for the single digits, which is a rare sight for any timepiece. This collection comes with various strap colors but the navy blue strap over the silver steel accent pieces makes it stand out a lot. Would be a suitable candidate for a daily watch.
With a 45mm case, covered in a 316L stainless steel case with black PVD coating, this Chrono XL is a proud sponsor of Tour de France. This quartz watch has a sapphire crystal, 100m water resistance, with stopwatch and chronograph.
If you need to track your laps and keep track of your performance without having rubber-coated watches resting on your wrist, this is a goodie.
I love how the neon yellow accent pops against the black background. It makes a huge impact if your clothing style are neutral to dark hues and you want just one thing to ‘pop’.
I’m not a fan of the large case size, especially for smaller-sized wrists like myself, but other people can make this work.
At 41mm, this chronograph is more suitable for the ‘everyman’ wrist and makes a statement with the rose gold case. It offers chronograph capabilities, worthy of keeping track of your morning runs and then off to your steering committee meeting right after.
Decisions don’t make themselves; needs a strong mind at the helm and that’s you. Well, it could be you if you bought this piece.
