A beautiful example of elegant product photography. The Tissot watch has a blend of elegant European styling and precision Swiss craftsmanship. The watch has been considered a fashion favourite. Tissot is a top luxury Swiss watchmaker company founded in 1853 and a member of the Swatch Group, the largest watch producer and distributor in the world.
It all started in 1853 in the canton of Neuchâtel, in the Jura mountains. Charles-Félicien Tissot, a builder of gold boxes, started with his son twenty-three-year-old watchmaker Charles-Émile a watchmaking company. They specialised in the creation of pocket and pendant timepieces. Success came with exports to the United States and Russia facilitating the company’s growth. In 1907 they commisioned a factory n Chemin des Tourelles, in Le Locle, which is still the headquarters for the company.
Tissot has created many firsts in the watch world. They created the first anti-magnetic watch and were also the first to produce the plastic watch.
