A Tissot mechanical movement contains an average of 100 finely manufactured parts. The balance wheel lies at the heart of the movement and ensures its accuracy. With its constant backwards and forwards movement, the balance and the balance spring divides the time into equal portions, thereby accurately regulating the movement of time. The movements of the balance spring, called oscillations, are what causes your watch to “tick”. The balance wheel’s total oscillations equate to 385,000 turns a day.
It goes without saying that the Swiss Made label is one of our core values alongside tradition, precision and innovation. So it is not surprising that Tissot gladly supports and promotes projects that share its values. Tissot has been involved in Swiss Alpine tourism and Switzerland’s mountain scenery for many years through various partnerships. It partners the Swiss Alpine Club (SAC), with whom it shares an allegiance to tradition, as well as the ever-innovative Jungfrau railways. Tissot itself boosted this pursuit of innovation by supporting the First Cliff Walk by Tissot, in Grindelwald. The brand has an equally innovative presence on Glacier 3000, where Tissot has put its name to the world’s first suspension bridge linking two summits: Peak Walk by Tissot.
