Tissot, in addition to providing extremely accurate timekeeping, will also be equipping the RBS 6 Nations' referees with The Tissot T-Touch II Titanium RBS 6 Nations Special Edition 2014 that reflects the dynamism and passion for sport of both Tissot and the athletes, with its fiery red and athletic attitude. Furthermore, it demonstrates the same level of professional performance with its tactile functions.
Like rugby, it is all about touching down, on the dial this time, to access the spectrum of functionalities such as a compass, thermometer, chronograph, dual time zones, two alarms, a backlight and a perpetual calendar and, even if it rains during the matches, the watch will be as tough as the players with a water-resistance to 10 bar (100 m/330 ft).
For Tissot, "In touch with your time" is far more than an advertising claim. This phrase expresses the brand's DNA; its proven dedication to being perfectly in tune with the technology and tastes of each era. Tissot has been growing and developing its tradition of innovation since 1853. From the early days to the present, in its home in Le Locle in the Swiss Jura mountains, Tissot has translated craftsmanship and precision into stylish timepieces now sold in more than 160 countries around the world. Special materials, advanced functionality and meticulous design detail join forces to create the luxury of accessibility. Tissot is a member of the Swatch Group, the world's largest watch producer and distributor of Swiss watches, as well as official timekeeper and partner of MotoGPTM, FIM Superbike, FIBA, AFL and the World Championships of cycling, fencing and ice hockey. With the latest innovations in its communication and product, Tissot presents impressive proof of its signature, "Innovators by Tradition".
