This company maintained its reputation not only by the high quality of the watches it was making and which people were already used to, but also by its innovation, as it continued to bring to the market brand-new products, like the first watches made out of plastic, stone, mother of pearl and even wood.

Tissot watches have been worn by famous people and celebrities, for example: Angelina Jolie, Elvis Presley, Nelson Mandela, etc.

The “simple timing” (START – STOP) function of Tissot v8 standard sport watch enables you to measure isolated events, while the ADD function enables you to measure consecutive events without having to reset in between (Each time is added to the previous total), and the SPLIT-TIME function enables you to stop the hands to read an intermediate time, without interrupting timing (When you restart, the chronograph hands “catch up” to the ongoing elapsed time), this functions being just a bit different from the racing watch models.

A brand watch such as Tissot v8 is expected to have a quite high cost, so its price is about 450$…but it worths the investment, as it operates with perfect precision for many years to come!
