Tissot T-Race MotoGP Chronograph: A 75th-anniversary celebration

In a blend of mechanical prowess and aesthetic finesse, the T-Race MotoGP Chronograph embodies the spirit of the race track with its dynamic design cues. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this watch is a true reflection of the thrill and passion that define both MotoGP and Tissot watches.

With its distinct palette of blue and red, reminiscent of the racing colors that adorn the tracks, the T-Race MotoGP Chronograph catches the eye from the get-go. Drawing inspiration from the world of motorcycle racing, elements like brake discs, handlebar-inspired pushers, and engine cooling fins are seamlessly integrated into the design, adding a touch of authenticity to the timepiece.

An intriguing detail on this Tissot watch catches the eye: the central chronograph seconds hand stands out in a striking red hue, echoing the color of the small hand for running seconds. This departure from the norm, where chronograph hands usually share a uniform finish, could certainly raise eyebrows. Perhaps it was a deliberate decision aimed at ensuring clear visibility of the iconic red “75” commemorating the 75th Anniversary of MotoGP, cleverly integrated into the 30-minute counter.

Technical specifications

But the beauty of the T-Race MotoGP Chronograph goes beyond its aesthetics. Beneath the surface lies a powerhouse of innovation and precision. Powered by a Swiss Tissot automatic movement, this watch ensures accurate timekeeping, even in the midst of high-speed action. With a power reserve of up to 60 hours, it can keep pace with your demanding schedule.

One of the standout features of this timepiece is its semi-transparent dial, offering a glimpse into the intricate mechanisms that drive its functionality. Coupled with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating, the T-Race MotoGP Chronograph not only provides clarity but also ensures durability, standing up to the rigors of everyday wear and tear.

Within the timepiece’s intricate design, the inner bezel elegantly slopes to embrace the tachymeter scale, seamlessly merging into the minutes/seconds ring. This ring, adorned with striking trapezoidal metallic hour markers, boasts a commanding presence on the dial. Each marker is infused with Super-LumiNova for enhanced visibility. Notably, the narrower ends of these markers, strategically positioned closer to the dial’s center, serve as visual cues, directing attention toward the vital functions housed within the watch’s core.

Functionality meets style with the central 60-second chronograph hand, complemented by 30-minute and 60-second counters and a 12-hour dial. Whether you’re timing laps on the track or keeping track of meetings in the boardroom, this Tissot watch is up to the task.

Breitling has popped the champagne corks, thrown the confetti, and introduced a new watch to the Aerospace collection to commemorate their 140th anniversary. The Aerospace B70 Orbiter was made to honor the extraordinary achievements of Bertrand Piccard and Brian Jones. The pair landed in Egypt on March 21, 1999, after piloting the Breitling Orbiter 3 balloon in the world's first nonstop flight. During the flight, they covered an astounding 45,633 kilometers over a period of 19 days, 21 hours, and 47 minutes (if you're using your watch to count). The Aerospace B70 Orbiter was made not just to celebrate Breitling but also to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the groundbreaking feat.

The dial is bright orange and despite the fact that it's supposed to represent the mission logo on the flight, it actually looks as if it would fit right in on a Formula 1 race track; basically, it works in any world where human beings are achieving massively daring feats. It comes with a titanium bracelet or a black rubber strap, so you can go sporty or classy, depending on the occasion.
Technical specifications
Within the Aerospace B70 Orbiter is the COSC-certified Breitling Manufacture Caliber B70, a SuperQuartz™ movement famed for its accuracy. This SuperQuartz™ movement is 10 times more precise than standard quartz and powers several features made for pilots, those in the aviation world, and those who are just big fans of it. This Breitling watch features a 1/100th of a second chronograph with split-time and flyback functions, a countdown timer, second timezone, two alarms, a lap function, and a perpetual calendar.
