Established in 1853, Tissot is the largest traditional Swiss watch maker in the world. On 26th August 2018, they joined forces with the captain of the Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli to introduce a limited edition, classic XL Chrono watch personalised by the skipper himself.

Here's what Kohli had to say:

 "I’m thrilled to launch a personalised Tissot Chrono XL Classic edition. My three years of association with Tissot have been a wonderful journey. I was totally involved in the designing of this line and I hope you all like it as much as we do.”

The watch brags Kohli's navy blue logo engraved in its shiny caseback along with a stylish navy blue strap which adds to the sporty aesthetics of the special edition.

 

 

What makes this piece really special is the number 18 in red inside the stop-watch. 18, is Kohli's jersey number and the red colour pays respects to the Swiss flag. 

Mr. François Thiebaud, Tissot President SA, sent a congratulatory message to Virat from Le Locle, Switzerland.

“This is the first time we have launched a special edition for a cricketer and I feel extremely proud since it is for Virat, who has excelled in every genre of the sport and has aced innumerable records.”
