Since 1999 Tissot has been the official timekeeper for the Moto GP. In 2012 to celebrate this prestigious accolade, Tissot launched this Limited Edition T-Race. This Quartz version had a production run in 2012 of 8888 pieces. The 46mm stainless steel case has a black fixed GMT bezel with a lift replicating a moto GP brake disc. This also housed a cyclops window for the date at 3 o’clock. Sapphire crystal protects the black carbon fibre dial with a tachymeter running on the outside track, large Arabic numerals indicate the hours. 3 sub-dials make up the chronograph, comprises a 1/10 second chronograph counter located at the 2 o’clock position and on the opposite side, at the 10 o’clock position, there is a 30-minute Chrono sub-dial. The third sub-dial is a 60 seconds counter. The screw-down case back has engraved limited number out of 8888 and in the centre is the MOTO GP logo. Inside is a Swiss Quartz movement. Fitted on its original striking black and yellow silicone strap with a signed clasp.
