Do you know all the ins and outs of cycling and the Tour de France? Tissot is offering you two special editions in the colors of the world’s media-friendly cycling race.
From July 6 to 28, the most prestigious cycling race will take to the roads of France with the final stage along the Champs-Élysées. To follow the 21 stages of the trial in the best possible way, Tissot, the Official Timekeeper of the trial, is offering two timepieces in the colors of the event. This edition marks 100 years of the famous yellow jersey. For this occasion, the Chrono XL Tour de France 2019 Special Edition proudly bears the emblematic color on one of the counters on its dial. The design of the T-Race Cycling Tour de France 2019 Special Edition is inspired by that of a bicycle. The inter-horns and the hands are reminiscent of the forks of a competition two-wheeler while the pushers symbolize the brake levers. The graduated aluminum tachymeter bezel in kph and mph, set on a silicon ring, represents a wheel. The counters evoke the cogs of a race bike and the back of the strap imitates the chain.
The Chrono XL comes in a commemorative box accompanied by two leather straps. The first all-black strap contrasts with the second which is decorated with yellow jerseys. As for the T-Race, it comes with a two-tone silicon strap.
Price: 480 EUR (T-Race) – 395 EUR (Chrono XL) www.tissotwatches.com
