Discount Watch Store is proud to be a retailer of Tissot watches. Founded in 1853, Charles-Felicien Tissot – a gold fitter, and his son Charles-Emile – a watchmaker collaborated to form the “Charles-Felicien Tissot & Son” watch shop and assembly in Le Locle, Switzerland. Tissot watches became known for their gold watches that were expertly decorated, and featured precise movements, which were given accolades at both national, international exhibitions, and chronometry events. Famed actress Sarah Bernhardt was even noted to buy a Tissot pendant watch at the 1900 world fair. Though many Tissot watches were sold in the US, Tissot expanded into Russia where their watches were sought by the Russian nobility before and after the revolution. Today, the Tissot brand is owned by the Swatch Group, and has done very well with the T-Collection.
Tissot crafts their watches mostly in stainless steel, black, gold, and rose gold ion plated stainless steel. Tissot does still make some watches in solid 18K gold, but that is the exception today rather than the rule. The company has created watches with all of the major complications including chronographs, GMT’s, skeleton watches, and even hybrid digital and analog timepieces as in their groundbreaking T-Touch collection. Other collections popular from Tissot are the T-Sport, T-Lady, T-One, and the Tradition lines. All of their watches are Swiss made, and are fitted with ETA movements allowing them to offer cheap, quality watches.
Tissot watches can be found on sale at Discount Watch Store at cheap prices. Each Tissot watch carries a two year DWS limited guarantee.
