A father and a son. A great passion and an innate talent for creating and making watches. Switzerland and the ability to look far ahead, aiming to conquer international markets. These are the ingredients that have made Tissot a unique company in the world that has resisted over time to competitors and ever-changing fashions. Watches immediately recognized for their great precision, reliability and historical appeal. It was back in 1853 when Charles-Felicièn Tissot, gold case assembler, and his son Charles-Emile, watchmaker, founded "Charles-Felicièn Tissot & fils" based in Le Locle, Switzerland.
