It is one of the house’s emblematic watches: the Tissot SuperSport Chrono, an aesthetic chronograph with its large 45.5mm dial outfitted with a stainless steel case with full black PVD coating and interchangeable strap. And that strap has become even more interesting. For Tissot, to celebrate its partnership with the NBA as its official timekeeper and to mark what was at the time the 75th anniversary of the NBA, Tissot brought out sporty straps in the name of 11 teams of the NBA as well as a Wilson strap made in the same leather as the official basketballs played out in the NBA. So with the NBA season in full swing and heading into the playoffs next month, you can choose your favorite team from among the 11 in the league: the New York Knicks, the Los Angeles Lakers, the Miami Heat, the Chicago Bulls, the Portland Trail Blazers, the Dallas Mavericks, the Boston Celtics, the Golden State Warriors, the Toronto Raptors, the Milwaukee Bucks and the Denver Nuggets. Tissot has been the official timekeeper of the NBA since 2015.

The Tissot SuperSport Chrono is also available in an eye-catching gold PVD coating and on all versions the indices and hands are coated with Super LumiNova for easy visibility and it is water-resistant to 330 feet (100 meters). The timepiece enables you to measure events lasting up to 30 minutes and it has a handy split-time function and lets you know when the battery is about to run out. The timepiece also enjoys a high precision Swiss quartz movement.

Tissot was founded in Switzerland in 1853 and is also the official timekeeper for the great bicycle races like the Tour de France and two other great cycling races, Spain’s Vuelta and Italy’s Giro. ©Trish Valicenti for The Gourmet Gazette. http://www.tissotwatches.com/en-gb/
