To honor its ambassador, Nicky Hayden, Tissot has created a watch which depicts the qualities of the amazing racer. The Kentucky Kid’s burning passion is illustrated through its fiery red, in a tip of the hat to Nicky’s race team, whereas his outstanding determination and will power are reflected in his star emblem at the top of the dial, at the 12 o’clock position.
The new Nicky’s watch with the referent number T048.417.27.017.00 will keep you right on track for all the races this season. Although it has the same specifications like the previous models, it brings some contemporary details which will appeal all fans of the 2006 MotoGPTM World Champion.
The size of its steel case is the same – 45.3mm in diameter and 12.67mm in thickness, as well as the mechanism (Swiss made ETA G10.211 quartz chronograph movement).
The masculine case is shielded with scratch-resistant sapphire crystals and constructed to resist water pressure up to 100 meters (circa 330 feet). Its case incorporates a GMT rotating bezel with black PVD coating, two chrono pushers and a screw-down crown with crown protection.
Underneath the front sapphire glass lies a white dial that preserves this newcomer with a sporty style and clear visibility. The hour and minute hands are filled with Super-LumiNova, as well as the outline of the star at the 12 o’clock position, along with the Arabic numerals 6 and 9, which represent Nicky Hayden’s race number.
Two chronograph counters for measuring 1/10 second and 30-minute are situated at 2 and 10 o’clock positions, while a small seconds counter is located at the 6 o’clock position. A magnifying lens for a date window is positioned at the 3 o’clock position. The case back of the watch features Hayden’s logo.
The obvious feature of this watch is dynamism that is visible through its white stripes on a red silicon strap giving it an extra high-speed effect. The sensationally dynamic strap is secured to the wearer’s wrist with a folding clasp with push-buttons.
This timepiece is presented in a special helmet box which recalls its essential elements, such as the colors, stars and Nicky’s race number 69. Considering the fact that Tissot T-Race Nicky Hayden Limited Edition 2013 is produced in a series of 4,999 pieces, there is a big possibility that it will go quickly so get yourself into gear. You can pre-order your new sporty watch on the Tissot website (http://us.tissotshop.com/) for $925.
