The time has come for another exciting season of fast-paced, breath-taking performances. This is not only true for the MotoGP races but also for their dedicated watches. At the start of the season, Tissot, the Official Timekeeper of MotoGP, launches the MotoGP 2013 watch Collection, which will keep everyone right on track this season.

This year’s Official MotoGPTM Collection comprises of two Tissot T-Race MotoGP Limited Edition 2013 watches; one is a mechanical piece limited to 3,333 pieces, while the other is powered by a quartz movement, produced in a series of 8,888 pieces.

These watches illustrate both the qualities of the bikes themselves as well as those of the riders. They have the dynamic look and robust aspect of the bikes with details reflecting some of their features, from the counters all the way to its carbon composition. The ultimate accuracy is also proof of the high standard that timing has been developed to over the years as Official Timekeeper for MotoGP.

The inspiration for these timepieces comes from years of partnership between Tissot and MotoGP. They have been given a fresh new look with their stylish blue color, while maintaining their powerful and precise qualities. These limited edition pieces come in a stylish helmet box worthy of a true collector’s item.
