Watchmaker Steps Back in Time

Swiss watchmaker Tissot marked its 160th anniversary by staging an exhibition at the National Museum in Warsaw that featured historical and contemporary timepieces made by the company.

The exhibition opening was attended by Tissot president Francois Thiebaud and Gael Vallade (both pictured), country manager for Swatch Group Poland.

Visitors to the exhibition were taken on trip through time to see Tissot collections designed and manufactured over the past 160 years. Some of the most popular items on show were pocket watches from the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. These models were favored by Russia’s Czar Nicholas II and his court, which inspired Tissot to create a special timepiece that, in a later edition, became known as the Czar’s Watch.

Other famous Tissot models shown at the National Museum included the Tissot Pearl Watch made of mother-of-pearl, the Tissot Wood Watch, and the Tissot Rock Watch, whose mechanism is combined with a rock from the Swiss Alps.

The highlights of the exhibition’s opening night included a cake shaped like a watch.
