François Thiébaud, President of Tissot, was proud to present Mr. Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of Dorna Sports (company that owns the commercial rights to the competition) the next year’s Official MotoGPTM Collection, which comprises two Tissot T-Race MotoGP Limited Edition 2015 watches; one mechanical piece limited to 3333 pieces, the other powered by a quartz movement, produced in a series of 8,888 pieces.
This year’s collection is as cutting-edge as ever and has been given a fresh look. A sharp new case design adds an angular edge while new pushers, shaped like bike foot rests, nod to Tissot’s sporting heritage. Back suspension rods that are illustrated in the bracelet’s attachment to the case will keep the adrenaline pumping. The familiar features that make these the ultimate sports watches remain, of course, and are better than ever. The famous brake disk illustration is still a sleek and elegant feature just like the black bezel and magnifying glass over the date display. Welcome embellishment, in the form of the dynamic GT stripes, will inspire wearers to go faster and be the best they can be, a message that is reinforced by Tissot’s MotoGP ambassadors.
MotoGP pilots and Tissot ambassadors Nicky Hayden, Stefan Bradl and Thomas Lüthi also received their personalised limited edition watches that each reflect a part of their personalities and strengths. These limited edition pieces come in a stylish helmet box worthy of a true collector’s item.
Mr. François Thiébaud, President of Tissot said “Tissot is proud of its strong association with MotoGP. The innovative and dynamic nature of the sport matches Tissot’s spirit perfectly. We both strive to enhance technology to provide better performances time after time. The latest exclusive timepiece dedicated to MotoGP, not only celebrates this alliance through the motorbike features such as the break-disc bezel, but also a precision that matches that of our timekeeping. As the sport evolves and timing gets tougher, we keep up-to-date with all the latest technologies to provide the utmost accuracy as does everyone involved in MotoGP races.”
Mr. Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of Dorna Sports, commented, “Tissot is one of our most trusted and long term partners of the MotoGP World Championship and once again they have produced an exclusive range of watches which perfectly match the precision and cutting edge nature of Grand Prix racing. We are delighted to see the new models and we are sure that our fans throughout the world will be quick to embrace next year’s Official MotoGP watch collection.”
It’s the Swissness at the very heart of Tissot that makes the brand such a distinguished one. The + in the Tissot logo is the same as the Swiss flag, symbolising the quality and the reliability that watchmakers have proudly demonstrated since 1853. The innovative brand remains in its home in Le Locle in the Swiss Jura Mountains, keeping its Swiss identity at its core. Tissot watches are authentic and accessible, using special materials, advanced functionality and meticulous design detail to create pieces that are both precise and stylish. The high calibre of the brand has been repeatedly recognised, as in its illustrious history Tissot has been named Official Timekeeper and Partner of MotoGPTM, FIM World Superbike, FIBA, AFL, RBS 6 Nations Rugby and the World Championships of cycling, fencing and ice hockey. Tissot, which sells its timepieces in more than 160 countries round the world, is a member of the Swatch Group, the world’s largest watch producer and distributor of Swiss watches. As it continues to create pioneering creations, Tissot stands by its signature, “Innovators by Tradition.”
