Our Origins

In 1853, Charles-Félicien Tissot, a gold case-fitter, and his son Charles-Émile, a watchmaker, joined forces to found the "Charles-Félicien Tissot & Son" assembly shop in Le Locle, Switzerland. The Tissot catalogue included a large range of pocket watches and pendant watches, mostly in gold, richly decorated or with complications. Their quality was widely recognised at national and international exhibitions as well as at chronometry competitions. During the 1900 World's Fair, the famous actress Sarah Bernhardt bought an 18 carat gold pendant watch.

Thinking Big

In 1930, Tissot and Omega merged to strengthen their position and offer their customers a more complete range of products. This new entity, the SSIH (Société Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogère), was the first Swiss watchmaking association. In 1933, Paul Tissot launched the Tissot Plan, a very innovative marketing action plan. The plan provided models selected for each market, systematic and targeted advertising campaigns, and free catalogues distributed to retailers. In addition, Tissot offered its customers a one-year guarantee, even in the case of an accident.

A Wave Of Youth

In the 1960s and 70s, the baby-boom generation made youth into a distinct age group, with its own culture and means of expression. For the first time, Tissot created collections for teenagers, including models that were both chic and original. Tissot also explored the possibilities opened up by new materials that were little-used in watchmaking. Synthetic materials, such as fiberglass, gave birth to fun and colorful models. From a technical point of view, they allowed for the creation of a revolutionary movement: the Astrolon. Quartz collections increased in popularity, strengthened by the close collaboration between Tissot and the world of Formula 1: from 1976, the brand partnered with teams such as Ensign, Renault and Lotus, and internationally-renowned racers like Jacky Ickx, Clay Regazzoni, and Mario Andretti.

The Swatch Group

At the end of the 1990s, Tissot, through the T-Collection, proposed ultra-feminine models, but also placed importance on sporty models, whose features were increasingly advanced. Sensing the extraordinary potential of touchscreens in the digital world, in 1999 Tissot created the T-Touch, the first tactile watch in the world. In 2014, the T-Touch Expert Solar, a new version powered by solar energy, was another world-first. In this way, the company is staying true to its slogan "Innovators by tradition". Directed by François Thiébaud since 1996, Tissot is also closely associated with the world of sport through its role as Official Timekeeper, and its partnerships with various sports disciplines. Thanks to its continuous ability to innovate, to stay one step ahead of the trends, and to reach all types of audience, every year Tissot sells more than four million watches worldwide.
