The brand is known for its innovative spirit, which led to the development of the first Swiss watch with a square movement in 1853, and the first combination of a timepiece and an alarm clock in 1882. Today, Tissot is a watch brand recognized worldwide for its quality, design, and innovation. It has become a brand associated with success, a positive attitude, performance, and excellence.
The Tissot Super Sport is a true symbol of Tissot’s sporty spirit. The watch is characterized by its colors, which are the colors of the French flag, and the French National Basketball Team logo. This makes it the perfect look to support the French National Basketball Team, competing in the Tissot NBA Paris Game in January 2023.
The SuperSport Chrono X is inspired by some of history’s most iconic sports stars. It’s not just about Julius Erving, either. The watch was also designed with an eye on other athletes, including LeBron James and Michael Jordan. But it’s also important to note that this timepiece has been worn by many athletes who aren’t necessarily known for wearing watches–like Hall of Famer Ray Lewis or tennis star Serena Williams–and they’ve all loved wearing it.
Tissot prides itself on its innovative designs, including this new line of watches called SUPERSPORT CHRONO X. This collection features modern looks with traditional features such as skeletonized dials and screw-back cases that are easy to wear every day.
The Design Concept
The design concept is based on the famous basketball player Julius Erving, who wore this watch as a player and coach of the Philadelphia 76ers. Julius Erving is known as “Dr. J” to his fans, who have followed him throughout his professional career since he began playing in 1969. In 1982 he was named Rookie of the Year after averaging 22 points per game for the Boston Celtics, and in 1983 finished second in MVP voting behind Larry Bird (Indiana Pacers).
Known as “Dr. J” to his fans, Julius Erving has been a trailblazer for many other professional players who have followed in his footsteps. The Hall of Famer is one of the greatest basketball players, having earned several titles. He also innovated the sport of basketball and paved the way for other stars like Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan.
Tissot SuperSport CHRONO X is a revolutionary watch that combines tribute and innovation.
With its square shape, this timepiece nods to Julius Erving’s signature basketball jersey number #33. The iconic three-stripe logo and an original basketball iconography pattern on its dial are also incorporated into its design.
The movement inside this timepiece is a mechanical chronograph with a column wheel mechanism that features two sub-dials (one for hours and one for minutes) and can be used vertically or horizontally, depending on your preference.
Athletic Theme Into Its Latest Collection
The Tissot brand, a Swiss watch manufacturer based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, has introduced its latest collection, which includes more than twenty models inspired by sports stars like Steph Curry, LeBron James, and Michael Jordan. The brand’s new SUPERSPORT CHRONO X is inspired by their most popular model: the Tissot Urban Chrono limited edition watch with a black dial and white hands.
The SUPERSPORT CHRONO X has been translated into an athletic theme that includes black details on its bezel and case along with white lettering on both sides of the face, which reads “SUPERSPORT” across it. It also features an orange second-hand with a gold ring around it and a second-hand red tip with a silver tip at the 12 o’clock position (the numbers appear in black).
The Tissot SUPERSPORT CHRONO X watches were unveiled at the “Welcome to the NBA® Paris Game 2023” event on Monday, April 10th. This was the first time a watch brand had attended a multi-sport event in Europe. The Tissot team has worked closely with professional groups such as Real Madrid and FC Barcelona across Europe to develop new products for this exciting occasion.
