For the 2008 MotoGP season Tissot ambassador, Nicky Hayden has cutting edge equipment – including his own T-Race Limited Edition. The unique design of the T-Race Nicky Hayden Limited Edition, presented in a helmet, echoes the precision engineering and colour scheme of the rest of this elite rider’s powerful equipment. This watch is limited to 4,999 pieces, each one with its number engraved on the back of the case.
Many details on the watch have their design roots in the world of high-performance motorbikes. The rotating bezel is enhanced with a silvery and black decoration alluding to brake discs, and the case back integrates a polished wheel spoke effect. A carbon composite dial and chronograph discs modelled on bike rev counters continually remind of the adrenalin-fuelled world of MotoGP.
Orange is the lucky colour of the 2006 MotoGP World Champion and features strongly in his 2008 limited edition watch. This sporty timepiece has a sculptured, orange rubber strap and an orange background for the tachymeter. Details on the chronograph discs and three of the hands pick up the orange theme. A touch of dark blue also brings the colour scheme of Nicky’s bike to mind. The black and orange mini-helmet presentation box bears the champion rider’s lucky number, 69, plus his distinctive star emblem, in eye-catching red – a winning collectors’ piece.
