The new Tissot Supersport Chrono Basketball Edition celebrates the Swiss watch brand’s long association with global basketball culture and its modern, urban style.
The new Super sport Chrono Quartz is a modern, masculine, and almost futuristic sports chronograph watch. This special edition Super sport boasts 100 metres of water resistance and a 1/10 of a second chronograph with add and split functions.
This new Tissot Supersport Chrono Basketball watch has a distinctly urban feel, backed up by its 45.5mm black PVD coated stainless steel case, crown and pushers, and by a gradient black dial with an original basketball net pattern that fades stylishly toward the centre.
The watch also has three subdials; two for the chronograph’s 1/10th of a second and 30 minute counters, and a third for the watch’s running seconds. The chronograph hands are in sporty orange, as is the watch’s central chronograph seconds hand, a colour chosen for its parallels with basketball.
These also contribute to the watch’s elevated legibility, a theme that also informs the hour and minute hands and the 12 hour markers, all of which have bright white Super LumiNova® coating.
The date window and the bezel’s tachymeter scale are also white on black for ease of use. Under the dial is a high-quality Swiss Made quartz movement with a useful end-of-life indicator.
Its black leather strap is finished with orange corner stitching, a nod to the NBA’s official game ball. This strap can be switched out for an alternate, using the interchangeable strap system.
The recommended retail price of the new Tissot Supersport Chrono Basketball Edition watch is $450 USD.
