Every year Tissot unveils the new model of its iconic T-Race MotoGP Chronograph to celebrate its long term partnership with MotoGP World Championship. This year’s version, like its predecessors, combines the colors of MotoGP, black and red, featuring sharp and bold design.
Tissot T-Race MotoGP 2016 Automatic Chronograph boasts a carbon fiber dial comprising various anthracite details which give it a rich look.
The bike-inspired dial comprises the sub-dials which resemble the bike dashboard. Two chrono counters are placed at 6 and 12 o’clock positions, whilst a small seconds sub-dial is displayed at the 9 o’clock position. At the 3 o’clock position there is a magnified white-on-black date window. The hands are coated with superluminova and offer outstanding legibility both during day and night. Traditionally, the dial is surrounded by a tachymeter scale.
The new watch that pays homage to fiery passion of two like-minded partners is housed in a sporty case measuring 45mm x 47.25mm with the thickness of near 16mm. The case is crafted from stainless steel and shielded with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The case constructions provides the advantage of 100-meter water-resistance.
The beating heart of the T-Race MotoGP 2016 timepiece is the impeccable caliber C01.211 mechanical chronograph movement with 15 jewels and a power reserve of amazing 45 hours. From the rear, the automatic movement is visible via the see-through case back.
The last, but not the least, Tissot T-Race MotoGP 2016 (the referent number T092.427.27.201.00) comes with a black rubber strap with a red racing stripe, ending with a push-button folding clasp.
A racetrack and bike elements are present everywhere, from a brake-disk bezel, tyre tread on the back of the rubber strap all the way to a rear suspension rode in the wristlet’s attachment to the case. Therefore, this newcomer is a perfect choice for those of you who are connected with the world of motorsports in any way.
