TIME­PIECE ON A MIS­SION

Go­ing on a week­end work-trip abroad? Strap on a Tis­sot Chemin des Tourelles GMT Au­to­matic

Portfolio - - SPECIAL FEATURE MIDO -

Short yet cru­cial work trips over­seas have de­fined our pro­fes­sional lives. Of­ten in­tense and en­ergy-zap­ping, they re­quire a laser fo­cus on fixed ob­jec­tives, while of­fer­ing lit­tle time for any­thing else. The last thing you need as you hit the ground run­ning is dis­trac­tion from hav­ing to con­stantly check the time at the head­quar­ter or wor­ry­ing that your watch is slow­ing down due to lack of power. A sim­ple, even el­e­gant solution with ex­cel­lent value propo­si­tion? The Tis­sot Chemin des Tourelles GMT Au­to­matic.

His­tory

The piece got its full name from Chemin des Tourelles, the street where Tis­sot first es­tab­lished its work­shop in 1907, and where it stands un­til to­day. That’s brand legacy and in­no­va­tion lead­er­ship work­ing in your fa­vor. Through­out its 165 years as a man­u­fac­turer of so­phis­ti­cated yet well-priced time­pieces, Tis­sot has main­tained its rep­u­ta­tion. In 1930, it launched Tis­sot An­ti­mag­ne­tique, the first an­ti­mag­netic watch; and in 1953 the Tis­sot Nav­i­ga­tor, the first watch with 24 time zone.

Func­tion

Don’t miss any of your im­por­tant ap­point­ments or that con­fer­ence call back home. This watch is equipped with a GMT func­tion that keeps track of two time zones. A fourth hand with red ar­row­head helps in telling the hour in the sec­ond time­zone. With a power re­serve of up to 80 hours, it will keep go­ing through the week­end with­out you do­ing any ad­just­ments. You won’t even have to ask the date – it shows up on the aper­ture at six o’clock po­si­tion.

De­sign

Show up at meet­ings dur­ing the day and at din­ner in the evening in el­e­gant style. The Ro­man nu­mer­als and GMT in­dexes are well po­si­tioned on a dial dis­tin­guished by dis­creet Clous de Paris dec­o­ra­tion. The el­e­gant stain­less-steel case is se­cured by a calf leather strap em­bossed with an al­li­ga­tor pat­tern. A range of three col­ors for the case, dial and strap ex­pands your style op­tions.
