We are all familiar with Tissot watches. The fine quality Swiss watchmaker has been amazing us with fantastic creations for over 100 years. Here is a peak at the T-Trend series by Tissot. The T-Trend women’s watches are really lovely. The Happy Chic T-Trend women’s watch is a favorite of mine. I love the big, bold square face on this watch. Tissot watches for women have such style and elegance, and this one in particular shows that off. This ladies timepiece is made from highly polished stainless-steel. The bezel and bracelet are both in this strong material. The Happy Chic features a crystal of sapphire, and a beautiful silver dial. The hours are marked with large Roman numerals, and the face is given a sunburst texture. Of course, this women’s watch is all Swiss made, so quality is a given, and so is style. Although I love the square faced Happy Chic, the version with a round dial is equally appealing. This Tissot watch features a two-toned stainless-steel and PVD bezel and bracelet, done in hues of grey and pink. The dial is a silver tone and has the same Happy Chic Roman numerals marking the hours. The Happy Chic is a wonderful series from Tissot watches!
Tissot watches, Swiss-made excellence since 1853. Today, that reputation lives on, through their extraordinary watches. Fine craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology give Tissot watches their appeal. Let’s check out a few of their men’s watches. All of these are great and really affordable watches.
First up, the PR50 Men’s Watch. This is a big, bold example of Tissot style. The T34148114 is a classic men’s timepiece. It has a large round dial, featured in white. The styling on the face is streamline, with big, easy-to-read numbers. The date window is located at the 3 o’clock mark and the Tissot name is proudly displayed under the 12 o’clock setting. The bezel is a scratch-resistant sapphire. The PR50 is an all stainless-steel men’s watch. It’s Tissot, so it’s all Swiss engineering means durability.
If you like a bit more pizzazz, you might want to look at the Quatrato Men’s watch. This Tissot watch is part of the famous T-Trend collection. It has a stainless-steel case and bracelet, and features a deep blue dial. The dial is a square shape, with a masculine appearance. It is a handsome timepiece, great for the office or special nights out.
These Tissot watches are in very traditional styles, but there is a Tissot for everyone. Racy and sporty, or sophisticated and business-like, more styles are out there. We’ll explore more next time.
Tissot Watches, founded in 1853, produced the first-ever production pocket watches. Their innovation did not stop there…the luxury watchmaker has since produced beautiful designs, rich in texture and style. Among these are timepieces crafted of materials like mother-of-pearl, wood, and even rock.
Artistically, Tissot Watches excel, but pairing that with new and creative technology, really sets Tissot apart. Implementing the, first ever, T-Touch technology is a shining example of the dedication to craftsmanship that Tissot exemplifies.
Tactile touch technology, or T-Touch allows the wearer to, simply, touch the face of the watch to alter the function. This invention marks a true milestone in watch making history.
Tissot’s T-Touch watches are designed for everyone. There are sporty styles with colorful, rubber bands to classic gold, silver, and platinum creations. T-Touch series comes in both men’s and woman’s versions and with enough options to suit most any taste.
With all the accolades, you would think the prices would be out of reach, but Tissot offers watches for any pocketbook. Tissot produces nearly 2 million watches per year and offers tons of options. The T34.1.481.14 Tissot PR50 Men’s Watch is a beautiful example of their desire to offer the consumer a quality watch at a reasonable price. This watch retails for just $146.25. On the other end of the spectrum is the T71.3.445.11 Tissot T-Touch Men’s Watch. This watch is a masterpiece of design, offering T-Touch technology, with leather band and gold dial and accents. The T71.3.445.11 retails for $6,495.00.
No matter your taste or budget, it’s clear that Tissot has a watch for you. You can’t go wrong with one of these fine watches, and with so many options offered, the only problem you will encounter is choosing the one you want.
Despite the economic crisis and all the naysayers who believe that luxury products are on the way out, Tissot Watches is one company that continues to innovate. The company has been very actively pursuing the Nascar Audience with its Pit Precision Award, but their most popular consumer watch is the T-Touch Platinum.
This exciting new timepiece brings together all the capabilities consumers have come to expect from their other “touch-sensitive” devices, like iPods and cell phones. But there are some other unique characteristics that make these watches different from other Tissot watches.
First of all, the case is made from precious Platinum 950, and the crown is made from a tactile sapphire crystal. By touching the crystal, wearers can use the watch’s “thermo mode” to get the exact outdoor temperature in either Fahrenheit or Celsius. It also includes a barometer function which allows the user to become aware of any major changes in atmospheric pressure. These extremely useful functions have made Tissot Watches even more marketable, especially to men who love “gadgets”.
Tissot Watches will be introducing more watches with a touch-screen, and even greater functionality in future collections. The new T-Touch Platinum has the beauty, functionality and gadgetry to make it a top seller for the company.
Back in the late 1850’s a man named Charles-Emile Tissot left his hometown of Le Locle Switzerland to begin peddling his world-class Tissot “savonnette” pocket watches throughout the Russian empire. From there, the popularity of Tissot pocket watches expanded throughout the world, and the Tissot Company eventually became the leading producer of traditional watches, available in five continents and over 16,000 locations.
Today, Tissot continues to surprise and delight its clientele with the latest innovations in luxury Swiss watch making. An excellent example of the company’s pioneering spirit is the latest touch-screen technology now used in the Tissot T-Touch collection.
Sports enthusiasts will be familiar with the Tissot luxury watch brand through the company’s long-time association with NASCAR, theAFL, World Championships of ice hockey, cycling, fencing, and the MotoGP, among others.
As the official timekeeper of so many world-class sporting events, Tissot has established itself as a high-performance, precision timepiece that continues to set the standard for Swiss watch making. It is no surprise that Tissot has recently signed on a number of well-known brand ambassadors, including IndyCar champion Danica Patrick, international football star Michael Own, and 2006 MotoGP World Champion Nicky Hayden.
Founded by a father and son team in 1853, Tissot introduced the first mass-produced pocket watch during that same year. Tissot has steadily maintained their reputation as one of the most leading-edge watchmakers in the world, being the first company to make watches out of plastic, wood, rock and mother-of-pearl.
Tissot is always on the leading edge of technology and innovation. From sporty watches like the popular T-Touch collection to more elegant timepieces like the men’s Quadrato Chronograph and the racy PRC 100 Dainca Patrick Limited Edition watches, Tissot is always on point.
2009 is proving to be a good year for Tissot. They have launched a series of hot, new ads featuring brand spokeswoman Danica Patrick, a new Sea T-Touch watch and upgrading already successful designs. Take the recently released Limited Edition Heritage 2009 designs for example.
There are two versions within this new Heritage edition: an 18K rose gold model of which only 333 watches were produced and a stainless steel model of which 3,333 pieces were manufactured.
These new Limited Edition Heritage watches take their inspiration from the 1940’s. They are classically designed and matched with a brown crocodile strap; both versions are rich in elegance, especially the rose gold one. A 38mm face, set on a black dial, shows intricate gold markings; the even numbers are boldly marked.
Both versions are chronometers and were tested over many days, in many positions and within varying temperatures to make sure they can withstand the standards of quality that Tissot watches promise.
With these new Limited Edition Heritage watches, Tissot’s motto of “innovators by tradition” has added two more collectible timepieces to the world of luxury watches.
