All eyes may be on the Kentucky Derby for now, but Tissot watches have long been supporters of another American Kentucky racer: Nicky Hayden from the world of motorcycle racing. The result created one of the famous watch brands most exhilarating timepieces to race to the top is their Tissot T-Race Nicky Hayden 2010 Limited Edition Watch.
After creating a watch for Danica Patrick, Tissot latched onto another racing super star, this time of the motorcycle racing hall of fame. A member of the T-Race collection, the special edition watch combines all the fine features of the T-Race line with a little extra inspiration from the Kentucky Kid.
With a race-car red silicone strap for maximum comfort and Tissot mechanics for the ultimate accuracy, the Nicky Hayden watch allows teams up with one of the most successful drivers to create their own successful timepiece. The red and black theme is supposedly Hayden’s favorite color combination.
Tissot does a great job of capturing the spirit of the races in the watch without becoming gimmicky. The white and black background dial is reminiscent of the dials on a race car dash while the red pops out for a strong punch of color.
Just in case you forget that this timepiece is made for race car enthusiasts, the number 69 and Hayden’s star emblem is printed on the back of the case, just as it appears on Hayden’s bike. Those who act quickly may even get the watch case shaped as Hayden’s racing helmet.
This watch is a must for those looking to shatter some records of their own. Built to be durable enough that it can survive even the hardened world of racing, the dial window is scratch resistant sapphire, while the stainless steel case with black PVD coating will have this watch looking like new now matter what it goes through.
Water also proves no problem: the timepiece has a resistant of up to 330 feet. With quartz chronograph movement, tachymetric functions, and a rotating bezel, the watch is a case-and-point for why Tissot is associated with some of the top racing teams: their accuracy and functionality sets them above the rest.
Only 4,999 of the watches will be distributed, so you’ll have to race to the finish line if you want to add this to your collection. And why wouldn’t you be? With all the daring of the motorcycle racing and all the performance of Tissot watches, the T-Race Nicky Hayden 2010 Limited Edition Watch, you’re sure to win as much attention as Nicky Hayden himself.
