WITH MORE THAN 160 YEARS of watchmaking experience, Swiss watchmaker Tissot has another passion: sports. But the brand says that since the beginning, it’s wanted to be more than just a sponsor; Tissot wanted to be a part of the game by doing what it does best — timekeeping.
As sports evolve, so has Tissot, which says it strives for better performance by dedicating itself to new technologies to deliver more accurate results in the sporting arena. Thanks to this dedication, Tissot is an Official Timekeeper and partner of many important sporting events and disciplines around the world.
Tissot entered the field of sports timekeeping in 1938, and today its sporting calendar includes timekeeping partnerships and data handling with MotoGPTM, FIM Superbike, FIBA, AFL, the RBS 6 Nations Rugby, and the world championships of cycling, fencing, and ice hockey. It’s also provided timekeeping services for multi-discipline sporting events including the Summer and Winter Universiades, the biggest international multi-sport events for student athletes, in 2013; the Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2007; and the Asian Games in 1998, 2002, and 2006.
As timing and delivery of competition results become more and more complex, Tissot has stayed on top of the game by providing priceless accuracy.
