Tissot has been crafting Swiss watches since 1853. The father and Son team of watch makers was the first to mass produce the pocket watch. This was just one of many firsts, which the company would experience. From there, Tissot became the first maker to craft a watch from plastic, rock, wood, and Mother-of-Pearl. Yes, Tissot is still an innovative force to be reckoned with. For many years, the company was making watches, primarily for men. As a matter of fact, 85% of their production was in men’s timepieces, but in 1998 the watch makers took off in a different direction. The T-Collection for women was launched, and was met with great appreciation. It seems as though the timing was right to open up to the world of women’s sport watches.
The Tissot Women’s T-Classic is one of their most traditional designs. It is crafted from polished stainless-steel, and offers clean lines and sophisticated appeal. The feminine sizing is smaller, yet not so delicate that it loses its power. It is a highly accurate Swiss Quartz model, which is water resistant to 50 meters. It features a Mother-of-Pearl dial and silver accents. The most attractive aspect of this timepiece, is the price…it retails for $220.00. A great price for a quality Tissot watch.
