Available in October for a retail of $2,400.
Tissot introduced two new Le Locle Automatic Chronometer variations at Baselworld last week. Presented in a 39.3 mm diameter fully polished rose gold plated stainless steel or bi-color plated stainless steel case. The Le Locle Chronometer is an elegant Swiss made dress watch, with a luxurious look, at an affordable price.
The dial features a beautiful guilloche pattern, distinctive wave hour and minute hands, and Arabic numerals. It is protected by a double anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and the movement is visible through a clear case back. The self-winding Swiss movement, is officially certified by the COSC, and is therefore tested to be highly accurate. Functions include hours, minutes, central seconds and date.
The case is 40 mm in diameter and is available in stainless steel case or yellow gold PVD coated steel. Sapphire crystal and transparent case back. Self-winding mechanical movement. Functions include hours, minutes, seconds, day and date. Dial is available in either blue, black or silver.

Originally introduced in 2009 with a quartz movement, the Tissot Veloci-T Chronograph is also available in an automatic mechanical version.
The Veloci-T comes in a stainless steel case measuring 42 mm in diameter by 14.89 mm in height. The case is brushed, with polished accents on the crown, pushers and lug edges. The pushers are rectangular shaped with black textured inserts, which add to the overall race inspired design.

For the 10th consecutive year, Tissot is "The Official Timekeeper of MotoGP," the fastest and most prestigious motorcycle racing circuit in the world. In MotoGP, the world's most elite motorcycle riders race insanely fast superbikes around the track in excess of 200 mph. Needless to say, timing motorcycles with this kind of speed and acceleration requires a highly accurate timekeeping system.
