The Tissot V8 is a powerful engine for the wrist. Inspired by the racing cars from the 60s, the bold 3 hands model confidently takes its position on the Tissot product “grid” with their dashboard-inspired tachymeter bezels. The Tissot V8 models will appeal to wearers with a good dose of adrenalin in their lives and zero tolerance for missing the action. Not only attractive to look at, the Tissot V8 is just as appealing for its slick technicality. An innovative automatic movement that is created essentially in a totally automated production is the driving force behind it. This not only makes for extra power reserve – it has more than three days of power reserve, compared to the 42 hours of a standard watch – but it is also extremely attractively priced.
Tissot pledges to guarantee the origin and quality ‒ including colour, clarity and carats ‒ of the diamonds in its watches. All Tissot diamonds meet the certification requirements of the Kimberley process, an international system for certifying rough diamonds.
A sapphire crystal gives a watch the following properties: extremely high resistance to impact and superior screen and hand readability thanks to its transparency. Because it is the strongest material after diamonds, it is used in fine timepieces for its anti-scratch prowess. Sapphire crystals can take many forms and give the watch a variety of looks: flat, domed, concave or ground.
All Tissot watch cases undergo several tests, including a water resistance check. Tissot tests the watch’s ability to resist impacts and pressure, as well as the penetration of liquids, gas and dust by replicating the real-life conditions in which the watch may find itself.
