For the sixth consecutive year, Tissot is launching limited edition timepiece dedicated to its most beautiful ambassador, Danica Sue Patrick. For edition 2013, the Swiss watchmaker selected a sporty PRC 200 chronograph, just like two years ago.
Tissot PRC 200 Danica Patrick Limited Edition 2013 features some quite useful functions, such as tachymeter and chronograph functionality, as well as some amazing details, such as shiny strap and elegantly designed dial.
The new watch dedicated to the famous American auto racing driver is housed in a sporty, round case crafted from stainless steel. The case measures 39mm in diameter and it is protected with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The case construction provides water resistance up to 200 meters (about 660 feet). In honor of its beautiful ambassador, Tissot engraved Patrick’s logo on the case back of the watch.
Danica Patrick’s watch for 2013 has a gorgeous silvered dial with three sub-dials. Two chronograph counters for measuring time up to 12 hours and 30 minutes are located at 2 and 10 o’clock positions, while a small seconds counter is placed at the 6 o’clock position. A small black-on-white window is situated at the 4 o’clock position. A clous de Paris on the dial gives yet another note of attractiveness.
If you look closer, you will notice that Danica’s race number 7 stands apart from other numerals with its Superluminova coating which enables to shine in the dark. The same luminous material is applied on the hour and minute hands to preserve perfect legibility in all kinds of lightening conditions. A tachymeter scale runs over the outer rim and nicely rounds the dial surface.
Tissot PRC 200 Danica Patrick Limited Edition 2013 is powered with the Swiss made ETA G10.211 Quartz chronograph movement. The same movement is incorporated in many Tissot’s timepieces, such as Tissot PRS200, Tissot PRS330 and Tissot PRS516, as well as some limited editions (one of them is PRC 200 Danica Patrick 2011).
This year’s model is teamed with a fabulous white leather strap, ending with a butterfly clasp. Danica Patrick’s watch for 2013 is issued in limited quantity of 4,999 pieces, so only the luckiest fans will have the opportunity to wear it on their wrists.
