Lot Essay

Tissot was founded in 1853 by Charles-Félicien Tissot and his son Charles-Mile Tissot in the Swiss town of Le Locle in the Jura mountains. Tissot has been over the years an official timekeeper for many sport events and its first engagement as an official timekeeper was in 1938 where they timed a series of Ski races in Villar, near the company's home town in the Jura mountains. This single button chronograph with its black dial and very good condition is a fine example from this time period.
