Tissot, the Historical Partner of Kessel Classic
The story between Tissot and Kessel already started in 1976 as Tissot sponsored the Swiss racing driver Loris Kessel from 1976 to 1979, who participated in six Formula One world Championship Grand Prix. It continued with Team Ensign in 1977 to 1978 with drivers such as Jacky Ickx, Clay Regazzoni, Jacques Laffite and Jean-Pierre Jabouille. Today, the Swiss watchmaker is proud to remain the Official Timekeeper and Watch of the Kessel Classics, which includes the Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique and the F1 Grand Prix Monte Carlo Historique. This year, the public will even witness the original Formula 1 Tissot car, which was driven by Loris Kessel himself, participate in the F1 Grand Prix Monte Carlo Historique.
