What started in 1853 as a small watchmaking operation run by a father and son duo is now recognized as one of the industry’s biggest names. The Tissot brand originally was all about gold pocket watches with ornate fittings. Today, the brand is known for producing cutting edge time-keeping technology used in sports events. Since the 1980s, Tissot has been one of the many subsidiaries under the umbrella of the Swatch Group.
Their entry on this list pays homage to the roots of the company as it carries the name of the family home. The Le Locle Valjoux Chronograph primary design also features rose gold coating, which references the original Tissot family’s history with gold craftsmanship. You may also get this Swiss watch in all stainless steel silver with a black dial or a lighter beige dial with a brown leather band.
