Tour de France with Tissot Watch Timing

Tour de France with Tissot Watch Timing

Out of all the international cycling events, the Tour de France is one of the most highly regarded and respected with all competitors performing to the highest standard showcasing their skill and precision on flat ground, mountainous regions and everything between.

On a sport that relies so heavily on precision, a high quality Swiss time keeper is crucial; and who else but Tissot?

Tissot were the Official Timekeeper of the Tour de France from 1988 to 1992 and have created a range of watches with the familiar Tissot style to suit everyone while still in keeping with the Tour De France theme of 2016. For the next five years we will continue to see Tissot support and lend its expertise to one of the greatest cycling races in the world.

One of the watches in this range is the Tissot PRC 200 Tour de France Special Edition 2016. Tissot have taken all the best bits from its current PRC 200 range and made a watch that does exactly what it promises to do. With P meaning Precise, R meaning robust, C meaning Classic and 200 standing for 200 metres water resistant, what better watch for the world’s most intense sporting event.

The watch boasts an extremely precise quartz movement, chronograph, sapphire crystal glass, black and yellow strap, stainless steel case and of course the official Tour De France logo engraved on the case back.

Another watch specially adapted for the event is the Tissot PR100 Tour de France Special Edition from its already established and well recognised PR 100 range. This watch shares many of the same practical features as the PRC 200 special edition such as a precise quarts movement, sapphire crystal and classic chronograph; it has a much more refined look with an unfussy dial, stainless steel bracelet, complete with deployment clasp and is water resistant to 100 metres.

With the collection including other familiar characteristics such as the T-Touch, we are sure you will find a special edition Tissot to compliment your style whether you’re cheering from the side-lines in France or watching on the TV at home.

Here at Creative Watch Co, we think the Tissot/Tour de France partnership is a great match and we are happy to be able to provide some of the styles from the this range both in our showroom and on our website.View our Tissot watch range
