The event also saw the unveiling of Tissot T-Race Limited Edition 2012, the latest luxurious watch design in the bold style of the famous T-Race collections, which have arrived in Thailand. The 2012 limited edition features Tissot T-Race MotoGP 2012, Tissot T-Race Nicky Hayden 2012 and Tissot T-Race Danica Patrick 2012.
The hi-tech modern Tissot T-Race MotoGP 2012 is inspired by those unbelievable two-wheelers, from the dashboard-inspired dial to the bezel illustrating the bike's break disc.
After 12 years of partnership with MotoGP, Tissot has embraced its hi-octane racer side and recognises what it takes to produce a winner.
This watch has the robustness of a champion with carbon fibre composites identical to those of the bikes, and its aerodynamic lines give it a fast and sleek characteristic, while the colours and design provide it with extraordinary style.
