History

Tissot Cie was founded in Le Locle in 1853 by Charles Felicien and Charles Emile Tissot. Their objective was to supply the world in particular Russia and the United States with quality pieces. In 1904 came the “Tsar’s watch”. In 1920, Tissot started to manufacture their own movements. 1929 is a key moment as Omega and Tissot join their efforts and form the “SSIH” Societe Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogere. Tissot targeted the medium priced market with 42 models. Tissot is known for owning the 28.5N21 automatic caliber, however for its chronograph, Tissot used Lemania movements, its sister’s company.
