Tissot is one of the leading sports watchmakers in the world today. The brand offers a wide variety of sports related models for everything from auto racing and bicycling to sailing, hiking and deep-sea diving.
Founded in 1853 in Le Locle, Switzerland by watchmaker Charles-Félicien Tissot and his son Charles-Émile Tissot, Tissot is responsible for producing the first mass-market pocket watches, as well as introducing the very first dual time-zone pocket watch.
The brand merged with prestigious watchmaker Omega during the 1930’s and became the affordable Swiss-made timepiece alternative to the more costly Omega watch brand. In 1983, the two brands became part of the Swatch Watch Group, the largest Swiss watch producer and distributor in the world.
The Tissot brand is highly identified today for its premium Swiss-made watches with great emphasis on active, sporting lifestyles. The brand serves as the official timekeeper for the National Basketball Association of America, the Motorcycle Grand Prix, the Tour de France bicycling competition, the International Ice Hockey Federation and the UCI Cycling competitions.
