This year’s novelties from the T-Touch collection are seven new watches from the Tissot Racing-Touch line which comes in different color combinations. Tissot Racing-Touch Tony Parker Limited Edition 2011 watch is a real pleasure for all sport fans (and especially for those who are into basketball).
The biggest sports news for the Swiss watchmaker in 2011 is definitely the signing of Tony Parker as the newest Tissot Ambassador. The first watch of this ambassador is produced in 4,999 copies.
This sporty timepiece with an extremely precise Swiss-made E49.301 quartz movement accommodates eleven dynamic functions. It has a full chronograph capability (the chronograph is placed at the 3 o’clock position), a logbook for recording personal results and data, a dual time zone, two alarms, a compass and a backlight. It also has a meteo function in favour of a tide function. All these functions are easy-accessible with a simple touch at its sensitive crystal. Further, they can easily be adjusted with the help of the lateral chronograph-pushers.
The 43 mm case (with the thickness of 15.35 mm) is made of anti-magnetic 316L stainless steel, with a rotating bezel and completed with the analog-digital dial. The masculine case matches a sporty black rubber strap with a safety folding clasp, and its contemporary look is also reflected through the black carbon dial.
The dial features Superluminova-coated two colored (white and black) hands and white markers, as well as a large LCD screen. The face of this Racing-Touch watch is protected by a scratch-resistant tactile sapphire crystal, assured with an anti-glare treatment. The new Tissot watch from the T-Touch collection is water resistant up to 100 meters and it is simply perfect for those who intend to swim and dive with their new timepiece.
The watch T002.520.17.201.00 is made of durable materials and created for a wide range of sporting activities. Black and white colors are the colors of Tony Parker’s basketball team – the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs. Parker is a very successful basketball player. He has won three championships with the Spurs in 2003, 2005 and 2007, and was named the MVP of the NBA Finals in 2007. He also plays for the French national team.
