The Tissot NBA Roadshow is Coming to Chicago

I like talking about local watch makers, and I also like bringing you word of cool watch-related events that are coming to my neck of the woods. Tissot is making a lot of noise around their new partnership with the NBA. At the moment, we do not have much in the way of new designs or team-specific watches, but they are working to get the word out about the relationship.

Watching the Web for December 19, 2015

As always, thank you for taking the time to join us for our weekly feature, Watching the Web, where we point you to interesting posts we find on other sites, as well as highlight our own popular articles. The week, from across the web, I have reviews of Nomos and Ressence watches, and a short round up of independent watchmakers. From our own site, seeing how this is the penultimate weekend of the year, I would highlight our most popular posts for the last 12 months.

Introducing the Tissot Quickster Lugano

Ah, summertime. Temperatures are warming up, and the strap collectors are swapping out their leather straps for nylon and rubber options, getting ready for the outdoor activities. What if, however, you are looking for something new to add that gives you something bright and lightweight, and easy on the wallet? Well, then, the Tissot Quickster Lugano may be just what the doctor ordered.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is coming up, and as a service to those gift challenged male readers out there, I though I would highlight a few watches that you may want to get for the woman (or women) in your lives. I am mainly going to focus on watches that we have reviewed relatively recently, though there are a few extras tossed in here. So without further ado, here is out Mother’s Day Gift Guide.

Introducing the Tissot Vintage – BaselWorld 2015

As should be no surprise to anyone reading this site, BaselWorld is well underway, with all manner of announcements being made about new and interesting watches. This year, Tissot actually had five different collections that were launched or extended. While items like the T-Touch and MotoGP watches get most of the attention, I was intrigued by a different set of watches – the Tissot Vintage.

Tissot Chemin des Tourelles Squelette, a Modern Skeleton

The concept of a skeleton watches intrigues me, but the execution (at least for affordable ones) usually leaves underwhelmed. I love the way that the mechanical movements are exposed, but they end up visually very busy, and they tend to be overly ornate. When Tissot offered to loan me the Tissot Chemin des Tourelles Squelette for a review, I jumped at the opportunity. Here was a watch that looked modern and readable, while still showing off the mechanical movement that makes a skeleton interesting. Unbeknownst to me, Patrick also decided to review this watch, albeit for A Blog To Watch. He didn’t get it hands on, but his impression was that the watch lacked some of the showmanship that you see on really high end skeleton watches, but still had a design that was readable while showing off the important parts.
