Tissot “Le Locle”
The name Le Locle seems to be a reliable ingredient of success. As well as being the name of Tissot’s home and heritage, nestled in the Swiss Jura Mountains, it is the name of a hugely popular automatic watch family. The models display exquisite elegance with details such as Roman numerals and a traditional Le Locle signature which complete the picture of classical chic. These finish off soave daytime and evening looks with a flourish.
The company was founded in 1853 by Charles-Félicien Tissot and his son Charles-Émile Tissot in the Swiss city of Le Locle, in the Neuchatel area of the Jura Mountains.
The first mass-produced pocket watch as well as the first pocket watch with two time zones in 1853 and the first anti-magnetic watch in 1929–30. Charles-Emile left for Russia in 1858 and succeeded in selling their Savonnette pocket watches across the Russian Empire. The company was also the first to make watches out of plastic (IDEA 2001 in 1971), stone (the Alpine granite Rockwatch in 1985), Mother of Pearl (the Pearl watch in 1987), and wood (the Wood watch in 1988). Tissot merged with the Omega watch making family in 1930 and Tissot-Omega watches from this era are sought after by collectors.
The company has been a member of The Swatch Group Ltd, since 1983, the largest watch producer and distributor in the world. Still based in Le Locle, Switzerland and marketed in 160 countries around the world. Tissot watches are currently classified by Swatch Group as “mid-range market” products.
Tissot entered the field of sports timekeeping in 1938 to become a key player in the championships.
Today, its sporting calendar unites high-profile events and a diverse spectrum of disciplines. In addition to its Official Timekeeping partnerships with MotoGPTM, FIM Superbike, FIBA, AFL and the RBS 6 Nations Rugby, the World Championships of Cycling, Fencing and Ice hockey entrust their timekeeping and data handling to the Swiss brand.
It has also provided timekeeping services for some of the world’s most important multi-discipline sporting events. Among them are the Summer and Winter Universiades, the biggest international multi-sport events for student athletes, in 2013, the Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2007 and the Asian Games in 1998, 2002 and 2006 and now here in Incheon.
As timing and delivery of competition results become more and more complex, the company has succeeded in staying at the top of the game and provide priceless accuracy every step of the way.
