Two weeks ago, Tissot unveiled a completely new T-Race MotoGP collection which consists of five redesigned timepieces.
Just like every year, there are Tissot T-Race MotoGPTM Automatic Chronograph and Tissot T-Race MotoGP Quartz Watch, as well as three models that celebrate Tissot’s ambassadors Nicky Hayden, Stefan Bradl, and Thomas Lüthi.
Tissot T-Race MotoGP Quartz Watch (ref. T0924172720100) is issued in the limited series of 8,888 pieces. This sporty timepiece features angular case design, with chronograph push pieces inspired by the foot rests on bikes and back suspension rods attaching the straps to the cases. All new Tissot T-Race MotoGP watches come with black bezels and magnifying-glass date windows which are holdovers from Tissot’s previous MotoGP models.
The new Tissot watch shares the red-and-black aesthetic with the automatic model and three other personalized timepieces. It is housed in a round stainless steel case coated with black PVD. The watch case measures 43mm in diameter and 12.8mm in thickness. The case is shielded with scratch-resistant sapphire crystals and it is constructed to resist water pressure of up to 100 meters (about 330 feet).
Underneath the front glass lies a black carbon dial with index numerals. The dial features brake disk design, with Superluminova-coated round indices and three sub-dials. The screws that fix the brake disc to the wheel are reminiscences of the small parts of the motorbikes themselves. The hour and minute hands are also filled with luminous substance for better legibility in low light conditions, while a narrow seconds hand is colored in a striking red.
This newcomer is powered with the ETA G10.211 quartz movement that provides the utmost reliability and the highest accuracy. The watch comes with 2 year warranty from the date of purchase.
The reverse side of the new MotoGP watch instead of a viewing window on the automatic model comes with a silk printed MotoGP logo on a sapphire glass case back.
T-Race MotoGP Quartz 2015 is attached to a black rubber strap with a red racing stripe, ending with a folding clasp with push-buttons. Tissot novelty comes with a special racing-helmet-themed collectible presentation box. The retail price of this watch is $925.
