Iced Media hosted a Champagne Brunch at their Soho Office to showcase a viewing of the luxury Swiss watchmaker brand, Tissot.  San Antonio Spurs basketball star, Tony Parker, was hand chosen earlier this year to be the latest spokesman for the brand’s newest collection of limited edition watches.  As guests walked around and viewed the variety of Tissot watches, big screen TV’s in the lounge, played Tony Parker’s recent Tissot commercial.

The Tony Parker LTD 2011 Racing Touch Watch allows for multiple functionality with 11 touch-activated functions at your fingertips thanks to the unrivaled Tissot tactile technology. The watch was designed to be your own personal trainer right there on your wrist. With its chronograph function able to record and save up to 99 lap times, it will make sure you strive for better performances in every sport.

The Tissot Racing-Touch also has dual time-zone capability, a compass and a backlight up its sleeve. There is even a tide-calculator to cater for optimized hours spent at sea or on the beach.  This dynamic and stylish limited edition of 4,999 watches which features a stainless steel case has an engraving of Tony Parker’s signature on the case back and comes with a black rubber strap and a carbon dial.

 The Tony Parker Racing-Touch Watch (USD $675) from Tissot would make a perfect gift for the upcoming Holiday season!

You can also visit Tissot’s website and virtually try on the different watches in the comfort of your own home.  All you need to activate is a webcam and the T wrist band which you can print off directly from the website. Guests were able to try this at the event and I thought it was a brilliant! A great way to see how the different watches look on your wrist before making a purchase.

Over the years many key figures have owned Tissot watches, including actress Sarah Bernhardt, singer Carmen Miranda, Elvis Presley, Grace Kelly and Nelson Mandela.  Even Race Car Pro Danica Patrick had her own exclusive Tissot collection last year and I even got to try on one of her limited edition watches.

Tissotis a perfect luxury brand for anyone and especially for the athlete (they even have watches that are water proof! Perfect for divers/swimmers).  If you visit the Tissot website this month, they are offering free shipping internationally until the end of December so now is a good time to visit the site and go Holiday shopping to find that perfect watch for yourself or a loved one!
