A new alliance has just been solidified. The youngest ever four-time MotoGP™ World Champion, Marc Marquez is the latest addition to the Tissot family. As the official Timekeeper of MotoGP™, Tissot was able to determine the riders’ time sheets by up to a thousandth of a second. Thus, they’ve been keeping track of the world’s best motorcycle riders ever since 2001. Last year, the Spanish motorcycling star celebrated his elevated status after beating Andrea Dovizioso in the thrilling championship race. His display of passion, skill and fighting spirit to be at his best makes him an ideal brand ambassador for Tissot.
The 25-year-old road racer enthuses, “I am proud to join this important brand with a large history in the MotoGP™ Championship. I have great memories thanks to the watches I received after achieving Pole Positions since 2008. I’m sure Tissot and I will continue improving and experience many successes together.”
Much like other luminaries from the Tissot family, Marquez joins in the action to create the Marc Marquez Tissot T-Race Limited Edition 2018. Paying homage to the reigning champion, the timepiece features a sporty body of the Tissot T-Race with design touches by Marquez himself. In accents of exuberant orange on an athletic black rubber bracelet, the watch masterfully retells his victory in his team colour, while his team logo is silk-printed on the glass caseback, perfect for the modern man who doesn’t settle. Tissot is renown for its watches’ advance features and this one is no different. Heavily inspired by motorbikes, the timepiece took to a familiar route to showcase pushers engraved with “start” and “go”, a brake-disc bezel and a perforated rubber strap to conjure the atmosphere of an adrenaline-fueled race day. In limited quantities of 4,999 pieces, this collector’s item for all race fans is complemented with a stylish helmet-inspired presentation box.
