Brief Tissot Watches History
In 1853 Charles-Félicien Tissot and his son Charles-Émile Tissot founded Tissot in the Swiss city of Le Locle, Switzerland. They were the first company to introduce mass-produced pocket watches as well as the first pocket watch with with two time zones displayed in 1853. Later in 1929-1930, they produced the first anti-magnetic watch.
Tissot has a history of being the first to use new materials when it comes to watchmaking. They used plastic in 1971, stone in 1985, mother of pearl in 1987, and wood in 1988.
Since 1983 Tissot has been a member of The Swatch Group Ltd which owns a huge range of brands for affordable, mid-range, and luxury markets.

Best Places To Buy Tissot Watches
Obviously, there’s a huge range of places you can purchase Tissot watches from online, but personally, I like to stick to places I’ve personally bought watches from in the past. That way I’m happy knowing my readers get the same quality buying experience I’ve had myself. Below are 3 retailers I recommend for buying Tissot watches.
Watch Shop are an official stockist for Tissot watches with an absolutely huge range available (over 250 watches at present). I’ve personally bought from Watch Shop many times over the years so I’m more than happy to recommend them. View all Tissot watches on the Watch Shop
Goldsmiths are another official stockist of Tissot watches, again with a very large range available including their latest designs. Goldsmiths are a company I usually go to for my higher end watches as places like the Watch Shop don’t keep the full selection of luxury Swiss brands like Goldsmiths do. View all Tissot watches at Goldsmiths.
I’m sure you’ve all heard of Amazon before. If you’re after an affordable Tissot watch, this is the place to head. The beauty of buying through Amazon, of course, is the benefits of prime and their (quick delivery of products when available through prime). View all Tissot watches on Amazon.
