Tissot Watches
Since 1853, Tissot has continually surprised and delighted customers with its product innovation. A relentless pioneering spirit led the company from its foundation in the small Swiss Jura town of Le Locle, to a presence in 150 countries. From its first pocket watch with two time-zones in 1853 to its revolutionary touch-screen technology T-Touch watch, Tissot has presented a series of "firsts" in terms of technology, materials and design – even to the extent of creating watches made of rock, wood and pearl.

Tissot has always been dedicated to taking its innovations to destinations well beyond the Swiss borders. In 1858, the founder's son, Charles-Emile Tissot, left Le Locle for Russia and successfully sold Tissot savonnette pocket watches across this huge and influential empire. Today, Tissot is the leading producer of the traditional Swiss watch and offers a wide selection of watches to suit diverse functional needs and tastes.

Over the years many key figures have owned Tissot watches, including actress Sarah Bernhardt, singer Carmen Miranda, Elvis Presley, Grace Kelly and Nelson Mandela. Proud Tissot Ambassadors of today include Danica Patrick, IndyCar® driver and first lady ever to win an IndyCar race, and Steven Stamkos, 2008 NHL Draft 1st Overall Pick.

As official timekeeper and partner of NASCAR®, FIBA, AFL, CBA, MotoGP and the World Championships of cycling, fencing and ice hockey, Tissot is committed to respecting tradition, underlining its core values of performance, precision and setting new standards.

With a broader, more versatile range of high-quality timepieces at an attractive price than any other Swiss watch brand, Tissot also expresses its commitment to making excellence accessible. Ask a Perosi's associate how easy it is to bring the Tissot tradition of excellence into your life.
