The T-Race Thomas Lüthi 2011 Limited Edition from Tissot is a boldly designed sports watch, full of details. This dynamic timekeeper features a detailed combination of yellow, silver and black colors, associated with the driver, as well as with a newly designed engraved case back.
This year’s novelty from the T-Sport collection is produced in only 999 pieces which will be highly desired by collectors. The heart of the watch is the Swiss made ETA G10.211 Quartz movement which provides amazing functions in the most accurate and precise manner.
This striking watch is housed in a round stainless steel case with a black PVD coating. Its masculine case measures 45.3 x 50.26 mm and it is 12.67 mm thick. The case incorporates a black rotating GMT bezel, inscribed with Arabic numerals and a guarded crown with an embossed ‘T’ on the upper surface. This new men’s Tissot is accompanied by a black sporty rubber strap, with a folding clasp with push-buttons.
The model T0484172703200 is very resistant to scratching, since it is protected with a sapphire crystal. Also, it has a solid case back, decorated with the lucky number of Lüthi’s bike – 12, as well as with his name below it. This sports watch from the T-Race family provides decent water resistance up to 100 meters (330 feet).
An Extremely Useful Timekeeping Instrument in a Race with an Outstanding Appearance
The most eye-catching is its silver dial which comprises luminous hour and minute hands, a thin yellow second hand, as well as Arabic numerals, three sub-dials and a date window.
Two black chronograph counters are set symmetrically at two and ten o’clock positions, and they track 1/10th of a second and 30 minutes, while a little bit larger white sub-dial at the six o’clock position is the standard 60 seconds counter. The date aperture is positioned at the 4 o’clock. A yellow tachymeter scale, with indices and Arabic numerals, is nicely set on the outer rim of the dial.
If you are intrigued in buying this limited edition watch, you will have to pay $795.
