Released just prior to BaselWorld 2016, Tissot proudly declared that, “The Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar NBA Special Edition is definitely one for the books. It’s time for something unique”. This watch was released as a celebration of Tissot’s groundbreaking partnership with the NBA, the largest of its kind to date for the renowned Swiss watchmaker. Tissot produced a collection of watches that perfectly symbolizes this important association. It has done so with a terrific special edition range that is also a great-looking timepiece.
The Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar NBA Special Edition comes with features as exciting and thrilling as the game of basketball itself. To show off the watch in style, Tissot has created an edition with a bold and eye-catching rosegold-coloured case. There is also a more discreet version available in a cool grey. The black dial is a fitting choice, especially when one spots the bold red arrow on the minute hand. A stunning design feature is the tribute to the NBA with its famous logo engraved on the caseback, making these special editions true collector’s items. Because not only is this a special edition watch, but it also represents the first time ever that the NBA has its very own dedicated Timekeeper.
The T-Touch Expert Solar itself is an important new model in the Tissot range. Tissot’s pioneering spirit is what led to the creation of tactile watches in 1999. Today, it is the first watchmaker to present a touch-screen watch powered by solar energy, confirming Tissot’s position as the leader in tactile technology in watchmaking. And this watch comes with no less than than 25 features, which include weather forecasting with relative and absolute air pressure, an altimeter, two time zones, a compass, two alarms, a chronograph with split/lap/add times, a logbook, a timer, an azimuth, regatta function and backlighting. Not shabby! And its hypoallergenic rubber strap and stainless steel makes it entirely suited to athletes, professional and amateur alike.
