Vintage is also a big topic for the Tissot timepieces. Tissot, founded in 1853, can draw on a wealth of models that inspire designers. With the new Tissot Heritage 1948 Tissot has created a model that carries the year of its predecessor in the name and is very strongly oriented to its appearance. This men’s chronograph takes this nostalgia with an eye for detail in contemporary watches.
At the beginning, Tissot was a network of independent workers who were highly specialized and made various watch parts.
Tissot won the coveted Grand Prix prize in Paris in 1900, the same year that the city's second Olympic Games were held. At the same time, Tissot began the long tradition of working with his ambassadors, wearing one of his wristwatches by legendary actress Sarah Bernhardt, considered to be the most successful stage actress of her time.
The high quality of the brand is repeatedly recognized in the sports world. In his illustrious past, Tissot has been named official timekeeper and partner of the NBA, FIBA, CBA, MotoGP, FIM World Superbike, AFL, RBS 6 Nations Rugby and the World Cycling, Fencing and Ice Hockey Championships.
