Today, Tissot’s high-tech countdown clock, located in front of Incheon City Hall, marks 50 days to go until the festivities start, with the opening ceremony of the 17th Asian Games on September 19, 2014.
The Tissot timing team is already set and ready to welcome the 13’000 athletes at all 49 competition venues. They will be providing the latest technologies in the field to the participants who have been training for years for one of the biggest sporting events in the world.
The Asian Games will definitely be an event to be proud of. Whether it is for the athletes themselves, the ones taking part in the organisation, or the billions of fans and supporters across Asia, for which Tissot has also created a special collection for a time to remember. The watches are synonymous with Tissot’s Timekeeping precision as well as reflecting the dynamic nature of the event. The collection is comprised of watches from classic to sporty, with unique designs, to suit every taste.
Tissot President, François Thiébaud stated « We have been working tirelessly with the Incheon Asian Games Organising Committee (IAGOC) for the last few years with the help of the many volunteers and partners without whom none of the Games would be able to take place.
