Tissot Watch

Tissot is a luxury Swiss watchmaking company founded in Le Locle, Switzerland by Charles-Félicien Tissot and his son Charles-Émile Tissot in 1853. Tissot introduced the first mass-produced pocket watch as well as the first pocket watch with two time zones in 1853 and the first anti-magnetic watch in 1929-30. The Tissot company was also the first to make watches out of plastic, stone, mother of pearl and wood.

Tissot merged with the Omega watch making family in 1930 and Tissot-Omega watches from this era are sought after by collectors. Tissot is an official timekeeper for the world championships in cycling, motorcycling, fencing and ice hockey and was used for the Davis Cup in 1957 and Downhill Skiing in Switzerland in 1938.
