But first, a brief look into the company’s history. Tissot was the first to mass produce pocket watches so that even average people may carry them around to check the time. They were also the first to develop a pocket watch that was able to tell the time from two different timezones. This was something unique at the time and hasn’t been done before. The innovations didn’t stop there, however. They also pioneered the technology used in many anti-magnetic watches today. Needless to say, with such a brilliant history, it is no wonder that their timepieces have always been the top choice for many consumers.
Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about the watch itself
It comes with a stainless steel case and sturdy black rubber strap. It’s been fixed with a black PVD bezel and comes with a black dial that features luminous index hours and hands. As always, Arabic numerals marks the 6 and 12 o’clock positions. Tachymeter and minute markers surround it’s rim, the dial type is analog. The date display is magnified at the 3 o’clock position. Chronograph which means it has three sub-dials which display 6 hours, 30 minutes and 60 seconds. Automatic movement, scratch resistant, solid back case and its water resistant at 100 meters or 330 feet.
- Wristwatches that are powered by automatic movement will never require any form of battery change. All you need to do for it to continuously work is to wear it all of the time. Should you need to take it off, the energy reserves could last for up to 38 hours— but this depends on the model as well. Nonetheless, it still saves you a lot of trouble.
- Durable and would be able to withstand the environments in which they are used. For people who are always the go, this is also a great watch to consider. After all, you just wear it and you’re all set.
- The most common drawback for these types of watches would be the price. However, Tissot does offer very reasonable prices for their timepieces. These are investments that are worth the money you’ll be paying, there’s no question about that.
Avid sportsmen all require gadgets that would be able to meet their needs as well as standards. The same goes for the small things such as the gear they wear and their watches. No simple would do because they go through very rigorous activity and as such, a watch that isn't up to standard would only fail them or get ruined in the process. Now, finding a watch of this sort is going to be quite the challenge and should also be considered as an investment as well. Cheaper ones might be good at first but they certainly wouldn't last long enough and the money you spend would have only gone to waste. So, since you're already spending money on it, why not invest on something that would actually last you a lifetime? This is where Tissot T-Race timepieces come in.
