TISSOT WATCH - HISTORY
In 1853, Charles-Félicien Tissot and his son Charles-Emile
Tissot created the Tissot watch company. Their driving force
for the company was innovative spirit and a distinctive taste for skilled
craftsmanship. Since then, the Tissot watch company has
located its headquarters in Le Locle. Throughout its history,
Tissot watches created products that never fail to attract attention, both
by watch aficionados and the general public. Whether in the technology of its movements, in the research for special materials or in the very functions of the watch itself, its engineers and watchmakers developed
watches that were pioneers of their kind. The most recent
example being the Tissot
T Touch watches.
Tissot watch company has supported many high-level sports for
decades. Thus the brand has presence in all parts of the world
with ever increasing demand and recognition. With its deeply held beliefs in the values of sport and notably their benefit for younger
generation, Tissot is also partner to numerous teams throughout the world each year, for example in cycling, ice hockey or cricket.
In 1985, Tissot watches became a member of the Swatch Group.
Today, Tissot watches are present in over 150 countries.
