In 1971, "John Shaft" in the film of the same name wore this watch and relied on its exceptional quality. In addition, the Swiss manufacturer intensified sports sponsorship in the 1970s and supported Formula 1 drivers such as Jacky Ickx, Clay Regazzoni and Mario Andretti in particular in racing. This present sports chronograph is one of the advertised world class products.
Technically, the Tissot works perfectly and has been recently revised: (297 °; + 7s / d).
TISSOT was founded in 1853 as the watchmaker's workshop Ch. Félicien Tissot & Fils by Charles-Félicien Tissot and his son Charles-Emile Tissotom in Switzerland. Today Tissot is part of the Swiss Swatch Group.
Tissot has been manufacturing luxury wristwatches since 1915 and with its own factories since the 1920s. International expansion was successfully accelerated very quickly and new markets were conquered with high-quality Swiss products. Because of the collapsing sales markets in Russia, Tissot sought to merge with Omega in 1930 to form the 'Societe Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogere ‘. After decades of success, the quartz crisis in the 1970s led to the founding of the Swatch Group in 1983, which still owns the company and brand today.
Today Tissot is one of the most traditional and internationally known Swiss manufacturers of high-quality and luxury watches and is a big player in the Swiss watch industry worldwide.
