One of the world’s largest watch producers and distributors of Swiss watches, Tissot, has launched a new Danica Patrick watch from the PRC 200 series, in only 4,999 pieces (numbered from 0001 to 4999). This novelty from Tissot comes with 20 Top Wesselton Diamonds, set instead hour markers at the white mother-of-pearl dial. For the first time, the true fans of Danica have opportunity to pre-order and reserve these beautiful timepieces at www.tissotshop.com (the starting price is $895).
The round case is crafted in stainless steel. With the diameter of 39.8 mm and the thickness of 12.02 mm, it is characterized by its harmonious appearance. A comfortable, white leather strap, with orange stitching gives a contemporary look to this new watch from the T-Sport collection. A modern design is also expressed on the dial. Attractive appearance of this watch is reflected by diamond indices and orange details, such as orange Arabic numeral 7 (Danica’s lucky number) and the second hand.
Luminescent hour and minute hands provide optimal readability in every situation. Two chronograph sub-dials at the 2 and the 10 o’clock positions display the 1/10 second counter and the 30 minutes counter, while an additional sub-dial at the 6 o’clock position registers seconds.
The dial is framed by a Tachymeter with an Arabic numeral scale. Finally, a date calendar is also included at the 4 o’clock position. The model T014.417.16.116.00 is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and since it is water resistant to 200 meters, it can also be used for diving.
This ravishing chronograph is equipped with a reliable ETA G10.211 quartz movement (the same movement is incorporated in PRS200, PRS330, PRS516 and in this year’s Tissot’s Limited Edition Nicky Hayden Moto GP Watch).
Danica Patrick is the only female driver to score a victory in the Indy Car Series, winning the 2008 Japan 300. The star race car driver placed 3rd in the 2009 Indianapolis 500, which was also a personal best for her at the track, and the highest finish by a woman in the event’s history.
In 2010, Danica began racing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, and this year, in early March, her fourth-place result at the Las Vegas Nationwide race was the best all-time finish for a female driver in a NASCAR top-tier series. The American auto racing driver has been a Tissot ambassador since 2005.
