You don’t need us to tell you that providing precise and accurate timing, and the necessary information are critical at competitive sporting events. This is why the appointment of Tissot as the Official Timekeeper for the 18th Asian Games Jakarta Palembang 2018, which kicks off on the 18th of this month, is a ultra-special association for the Swiss watch brand. Bringing together the highest number of athletes worldwide, the Asian Games is the oldest and most prestigious event in the calendar of the Olympic Council of Asia.
The relationship between Tissot and the dynamic world of sports started in the late 1930s. Sharing the same values such as tradition, precision and passion, Tissot President, François Thiébaud expressed: “The Asian Games perfectly reflect the Tissot spirit by their diversity and dynamism and allow us to set ourselves apart with impeccable timekeeping and the most accurate measurement, which further confirms the quality of our watches. Even though we have provided our services to the Asian Games before, we strive to bring even more precision and innovation on every occasion, as we do for our watches. ‘Innovators by tradition’ is our motto and we stand by it.”
Since the process of timing and delivery of competition results is no easy feats, Tissot has succeeded in staying at the top of the game in providing accuracy every step of the way – and will continue to do so at the Asian Games.
