Tissot first started out supplying pendant watches and pockets watches to places overseas. It wasn't until the year of 1910 when Tissot set up their own watch manufacturing facilities in Le Locle, Switzerland, where many innovations were brought to life. The company were soon able to turn their attention to ladies watches made from gold and platinum, and focus on developing their own mechanical powered watches, but that certainly didnt deter them from creating pocket watches of the very highest quality. The Tissot T-Pocket watch collection is home to a number of meticulously crafted timepieces from the Lepine collection
If you have come to appreciate the beauty of an authentic Tissot pocket watch, you more than likely have a soft spot for traditional watch manufacture, namely Tissot and their extraordinary journey since the founding of the company back in 1853. For over 160 years, expert designers and artisans have been refining their skills in creating stunning wristwatches for the dedicated collector, but their collections first started out with pocket watches and pendant watches. Once Tissot became established and renowned as a globally successful developer and supplier of high quality Swiss-based watches, their collection of pocket watches depleted as the demand for a wristwatch went on the rise. Tissot however, have continued to keep the spirit of their rich heritage alive with a number of beautiful pocket watches from the Tissot T-Pocket watch collection. Each design embodies the traditional watch manufacturing methods that Tissot have always held so close to their heart, yet with elements of modern technology added into the production, these super masterpieces can be described as traditional tools for the modern day lady or gent.
