Tissot T-Race MotoGP Limited Edition 2008 - Keep Always on Track!

Jun 17, 2008
If you are one of avid Tissot fans, you are no doubt aware that the company has acted as the Official Timekeeper of the MotoGP since 2001. No wonder, the largest traditional Swiss watchmaker and the world's premier motorcycling championship share a lot of common values, especially their deep dedication to high-performance in style.

Drop a glance at the Tissot T-Race MotoGP Limited Edition 2008 and your attention will be immediately caught by this season's hottest color - flamboyant yellow. The watch is a real eye-catcher as it goes on a bright yellow rubber strap, and the same color is echoed by the dial details. Moreover, the timepiece is presented inside a stylish MotoGP helmet box filled with interchangeable medallions.

The dynamic nature of the Tissot watch and its high performance are revealed through a rotating bezel and racing–inspired carbon composite elements. You will notice a variety of bike-inspired details integrated into the design of the Tissot T-Race MotoGP. Small elements that remind the brake discs of a high-performance motorbike complete the bezel that displays the 18 circuits of the MotoGP World Championship 2008.

The carbon composite elements are featured on the stainless steel case. It's worth mentioning that carbon composite is a material widely applied in the engineering of high-performance bikes. The black carbon dial of the Tissot watch showcases a squared pattern as a matching background for the bright yellow seconds and chronograph hands.

The Tissot Moto GP Limited Edition 2008 is equipped with a reliable Swiss-made quartz movement, providing a combination of useful functions: hours, minutes, seconds, date, chronograph, and tachometer.

The Tissot T-Race MotoGP Limited Edition 2008 is available in a limited series of 8,002 numbered pieces. The case back of the model reveals the engraving of the official MotoGP logo. It's amazing that it can be exchanged with one of the 18 medallions kept in the helmet, with help of a special tool, while maintaining the proper water-resistance (down to 100 meters).

Each of the medallions features the engraving of one of the circuits hosting a 2008 championship race that covers a total of 15 countries. The logo is also featured by the folding buckle of the textured rubber strap.

A great discovery for motor sports aficionados!
