The Tissot T-Race MotoGP watch is made of a beautiful rose gold and and a deep black for a stunning design. It is a bold watch with a large face, and yet there is something delicate about it, too.

The band is all black, and it keeps this watch looking simple enough to be worn with any outfit.

Tissot was founded by a father and son team in 1853. It is a Swiss company that made the first mass produced pocket watch, and it became well known as a watch maker because of that. The quality was there, and that was something that people cared about. The company is still around to this day because it uses the best materials and is careful about how its watches turn out. The watches from this brand feature a variety of materials and looks, from rose gold and silver, to leather bands and a bright red color on the watch.

Tissot Generosi-T Lady Quartz

Posted by Schwarzschild at 7:36:38 AM in Tissot (27)

The Tissot Generosi-T is a slim yet substantial watch that features understated diamond hour markers given high contrast against a dial of luxurious black mother-of-pearl. The sleek curves of the rectangular face and case mirror the alluring outlines of the female form. At the same time, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal dome protects the piece from the rigors of everyday life. Solid 316L stainless steel also adds strength to the feminine design in a bracelet that subtly narrows as it embraces the wrist, ending in a butterfly clasp. Two simple Roman numerals and fuss-free date display complement rather than distract from the dial -- diamond stars on a night sky full of hidden color. The piece is water resistant for up to 30 meters (100 feet).

Since 1853, Tissot has been creating innovations in materials and technology from Le Locle, Switzerland, the heart of the centuries-old Swiss watchmaking industry.

Fast and furious

Posted by Schwarzschild at 5:00:00 AM in Tissot (27)

Just how fast is fast? If you ask MotoGP, of which Tissot is a brand ambassador, the top speed bikers reach was around 361 kph at the Mugello circuit. That’s almost half the speed of a turboprop. At ground level, the speed must be exhilarating, blurring the side views and keeping only the things up front in focus. For the rider, the speed tantamounts to flying and gives him a sense of superhero complex to mock the slower vehicles around him. Take this Zx-10 biker in a viral video that zoomed past cars from Augsburg to Munich in Germany. The biker was speeding at 300 kph and, obviously, wanted to show off. Well, a funny thing happened on his way to Munich: an Audi overtook him.

He glides through the court armed with his smooth passes and precise court direction. Tony Parker is your typical point guard — he plays for the San Antonio Spurs — and he’s French.  He’s got the basketball skills, yes, and the coolness factor off the court.

The Tissot Advantage

Posted by Schwarzschild at 2:29:15 PM in Tissot (27)

One way of projecting luxury is to wear an elegant watch. Many people judge your importance and value by the watch you wear. Although it’s true wearing a more popular signature will assure you of respect from colleagues, sometimes, it can backfire. After all, exclusivity is a function of the truly wealthy. It’s the advantage of wearing a Tissot. It’s Swiss luxury without the mass appeal simply because not too many know a Tissot. But once they see its elegant lines, the masterfully engineered strokes of its dials and its wide array of chic and graceful styles, they know at once it’s a brand reserved for a few. Some of the signature’s admirable designs are: the Touch Collection; T-Sport; T-Trend; and T-Gold. All models feature Swiss precision and luxury.

International Man of PickUp Line

Posted by Schwarzschild at 8:09:12 AM in Tissot (27)

How about using your Tissot for a pickup line? This man shows us how.
The young American sat at the international party feeling overwhelmed by the foreigners all decked out in the latest European designs. More than anything, the young man desperately wanted to have the cute European girl approach him. This time he was prepared. He waited for the right moment and then casually rolled up his sleeves revealing a Tissot Racing Touch watch just as the girl was near. The watch's Swiss crafted design drew a quick compliment from the young lady. The young man then seized the opportunity to talk to her. As the girl said goodbye at the end of the party, the boy told her it’s still very early in Europe, and invited her for an after party. The girl was impressed by the boy’s knowledge of her time zone. Dual time zone capability is just another feature of the Tissot, but it’s the brand’s elegance and smooth confidence that’s probably got the girl’s attention.

More than meets the eye

Posted by Schwarzschild at 1:26:35 PM in Tissot (27)

"What is essential is invisible to the eye," as what was notably quoted in Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince. This is very true in most of life's situations, as people tend to conceal their truest character within their private selves. This belief, however, is also quite applicable to other things, such as timepieces. For one, the Tissot T-Touch Classic merges timeless classic style and sophisticated technology into one. At first glance, an unsuspecting eye will readily recognize an indubitably impressive vintage watch. A close examination, however, will expose something more. It is in fact a sports timepiece featuring 11 tactile functions, built with a mini LCD screen! With a stainless steel bracelet 
The Tissot T-Touch Classic is simply "the" watch for all sporty gentlemen out there, who just want to stick to nostagic designs while at the same time seeking for utility that's imperative to lead an active lifestyle.
It's a good thing, though, that Tissot timepieces are always "visibly" available at Schwarzschild’s at Carry Town.
