SWISS SUPREMACY

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Time Kulture -

PIN­POINT ac­cu­racy in time­keep­ing is es­sen­tial when it comes to world cham­pi­onships.

A frac­tion of a sec­ond de­ter­mines who stands at the win­ner’s podium and who doesn’t.

Named af­ter the street in Le Lo­cle where Tis­sot was es­tab­lished in 1907, the Tis­sot Ch­ernin des Tourelles watches have al­ways been a sig­nif­i­cant col­lec­tion for the brand.

Epit­o­mis­ing the spirit of Switzer­land, the new Tis­sot Chemin des Tourelles Hel­vetic Pride special edi­tion was de­signed with touches of Swiss char­ac­ter­is­tics.

Fea­tured on the case back is the Swiss franc coin Hel­ve­tia, the fe­male na­tional per­son­i­fi­ca­tion of Switzer­land. She is de­picted stand­ing proudly sur­rounded by 23 stars rep­re­sent­ing the states of the Swiss Con­fed­er­a­tion.

The dial of the men’s version also pays trib­ute with a Swiss cross pat­tern, while the women’s model is em­bel­lished with mother-ofpearl.

Cast in cool bi­colour and pow­ered by the Pow­er­matic 80 move­ment, it has up to 80 hours of power re­serve.

The 316L stain­less steel case comes with an en­graved case back, and is avail­able in 44mm di­am­e­ter for men and 32mm for women.

Its bi­colour rose-gold is ex­e­cuted with PVD coat­ing and the dome is scratch-re­sis­tant sap­phire crys­tal with anti-re­flec­tive coat­ing.

The Hel­vetic Pride special edi­tion comes in 316L stain­less steel bracelet with but­ter­fly clasp with push-but­tons, and is wa­ter re­sis­tant up to a pres­sure of 5 bar (50m).

If cy­cling is your pas­sion or your tastes grav­i­tate to­wards sportier de­signs, then the Tis­sot T-Race Cy­cling Tour de France special edi­tion will be right up your al­ley.

Hav­ing been in­volved in the world of cy­cling for over 50 years Tis­sot is well ac­quainted with the de­mands of a watch for a pro­fes­sional cy­clist.

The Tis­sot T-Race Cy­cling Tour de France special edi­tion watch is in­spired by the world of cy­cling and is ded­i­cated to one of its most pop­u­lar races, the Tour de France, for which the brand is the of­fi­cial time­keeper.

Its ath­letic de­sign bears the yel­low and black colours of the race, with its of­fi­cial logo en­graved on the case back.

The sporty dial dis­plays three coun­ters on a black tar ef­fect back­ground, repli­cat­ing roads and the large hands make time pre­cise and a breeze to read.

Bi­cy­cle el­e­ments in­te­grated in the de­sign in­clude the wheel re­flected by the tachymeter bezel, brake levers in the push­ers and the bi­cy­cle chain on the back of the bracelet.

Based on a quartz move­ment this 44.5mm di­am­e­ter watch comes in 316L stain­less steel case with grey and black PVD coat­ing and car­bon com­pos­ite.

Its alu­minium bezel sur­rounds a scratch-re­sis­tant sap­phire crys­tal face, and this high per­for­mance model is wa­ter-re­sis­tant up to a pres­sure of 10 bar (100m).

The Swiss iden­tity is richly hon­oured in the Chemin des Tourelles Hel­vetic Pride special edi­tion.

The T-Race Cy­cling Tour de France special edi­tion has dis­tinct bi­cy­cle el­e­ments em­bed­ded in its de­sign.
