MotoGP's Lorenzo complains of tire change

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:00:00 AM in Tissot (37)

The Tissot-sponsored MotoGP is more than the powerful bike's engine or the racing skills of the rider. There's the grip factor that spells a win or lose for a MotoGP racer. Jorge Lorenzo highlighted this factor after having performed below par, taking him 14 rounds to claim a victory last season. He complained of the change in the rear tire, which Bridgestone switched to a stiffer, heat-resistant make. The Spaniard uses edge grip at full lean for his corner-run signature, and the change made it harder for him to take this style. He compared his predicament to tennis. "If a tennis player doesn't like a surface and suddenly he has to play three of four tournaments on it for sure he cannot perform at the same level." In extreme sports like MotoGP, a fraction of a change is critical.

This feature is not just for style; they make an efficient way to measure time in tight spots as sporting events or outdoor adventures.  Imagine rock climbing while setting your chronograph.

The World of Fencing

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Tissot (37)

Timing is everything and in the world of fencing you can’t point this out any further. A fencer readies his angle and sets his foot firmly on the ground. He focuses on his opponent, viewing him not just a part of his body, but his whole movement from head to toe. He measures his competitor’s angle and his the alignment of his arms and legs. Gracefully advancing to meet him, he computes all these angles and movements down to the tiny fraction of time. Peeking at a gap in his opponent’s move, he makes a thrust, stretching his arm and hands directly to a point of his enemy’s chest. Bullseye! A millisecond late and he’ll take a hit. This is the world of fencing. This is the world of Tissot, the official timekeeper of the Fencing World Championships.

The Value of Innovation

Posted by Schiffman's at 6:00:50 AM in Tissot (37)

People and Organizations have always been attracted to reinvention. Large organizations are spending more and more on innovation than ever before. Individuals believe that change means reinvention. Each time a major shift happens in our lives — leaving a job or a relationship, moving, losing a loved one — we have to take control of who we will become or risk never reaching our full potential. After all, there is no shortage of sound advice on how to improve: come up with better ideas, look outside the box, sharpen the execution, etc. This is the same reason why Tissot, with its signature 'Innovators by Tradition', has been pioneering craftsmanship and innovation since its foundation in 1853. The Tissot innovation leadership is enabled by the development of high-tech products, special materials and advanced functionality. With a broader, more versatile range of high-quality timepieces at an attractive price than any other Swiss watch brand, Tissot also expresses its commitment to making excellence accessible.

A Brand of Honor

Posted by Schiffman's at 5:00:00 AM in Tissot (37)

A Tissot watch is comparably described as one of the brilliant watches that reflect the true nature of man.  That nature of man is a life seeking actuation meant to satisfy his ego and security. The continuous search for that distinct signature of prestige, the one it could afford to flaunt just for the feel of security. Tissot is definitely a symbol status for the elite. Though, figuratively speaking in its monetary value, its too distracting to actually elevate the fact that value indeed equates luxury. Luxury can be expressed in variant modes found to be worthy and reliable to comprehend. It's that typical jargon of elegance that value can be appreciated at least on the level of a Tissot watch creation!
 
Comfort and style are the added values of a watch known as the brand of honor! Stop being a beholder of prestige, wear one today! Wear a Tissot watch!

Beat the Record with Tissot T-Race

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Tissot (37)

Before the 1970s, the topic of women in history was largely missing from general public consciousness. Long before that, Napoleon Bonaparte famously declared that women are nothing but “machines for producing children.” But times have changed. What have been impossible before have become possible now – like say, a woman who could win a race in the IndyCar Series. 
 
In 2005, Danica raced at the prestigious Indianapolis 500-mile race where she came a sensational fourth. That race went down in history as she became the first woman ever to lead a lap of the Indy 500 – beating her personal record in 2009 by reaching the third position. She has beaten many records over the years and will continue to strive in her new NASCAR challenge next season.
 
Like the athlete the watch honors, Tissot T-Race Danica Patrick 2012 limited edition watch by Tissot is not just a pretty face and will leave everyone speechless at its performance and style – the watch combines sophistication to robustness and precision, giving this timepiece a distinctive look and an incredible charm. Come see it at Schiffman’s in Winston-Salem.

Tony in Touch with Tissot

Posted by Schiffman's at 2:00:00 AM in Tissot (37)

William Anthony "Tony" Parker, Jr. is one of the quickest players in the National Basketball Association nowadays. He plays the point guard position and has established himself as a potent scorer. He is often seen slashing to the basket for a layup or teardrop shot despite his relatively small size for a basketball player (6'2"). In fact, he has been named to five NBA All-Star game, two All-NBA Second Team, and an All-NBA Third Team. He was even the 2007 NBA Finals MVP and is currently playing for the San Antonio Spurs. As of this writing, Parker scored 37 points (15-27 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT) to go with four rebounds and six assists during Game 4’s win against the Grizzlies, pushing the Spurs to the Finals in a sweeping fashion. Although Parker’s field goal percentage dropped in the playoffs compared to his regular season mark, it did not stop him from dominating the court in Game 4, with a whopping 15-for-21 showcase. With the early sweep in the Western Conference Finals, Parker and the Spurs will have a chance for extended rest before taking on the Heat or the Pacers in the championship round. 
 
Tony Parker was born in Belgium, in 1982 with basketball in his genes as he was the son of a professional basketball player. He started making a name for himself at just 15 when he was talent-spotted and asked to attend the National Institute for Sports and Physical Education in Paris (INSEP). After playing in the French amateur leagues for two seasons, Parker turned professional and signed with Paris Basket Racing in 1999. In 2002, he joined the NBA and the team of the San Antonio Spurs. After initially playing backup to Antonio Daniels, Parker was made a starter and made 77 regular season appearances in his rookie season, averaging 9.2 points, 4.3 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 29.4 minutes per game. When he played against the Los Angeles Clippers on 30 November 2001, he became the third French player ever to play in an NBA game, after Tariq Abdul-Wahad and Jerome Moiso. Parker brought to the Spurs a greater tempo in their game, getting his teammates better looks at the basket whenever he was involved in transition offense. He could also hit open jump shots, and this created greater space for the big men on the team, Tim Duncan and David Robinson. By the end of the season, the rookie led San Antonio in assists and steals, and was named to the All-Rookie First Team for 2001–02, becoming the first foreign-born guard to earn the honor. Although the Spurs were eliminated during the playoffs, Parker's performances did not go unnoticed, even up to now. Today, Parker is one of the most respected point guards in the league, known as a player that can do it all. He can shoot, he can pass, he can run the break, he can command his team and he can score. Though smaller and slighter than the prototypical NBA player, Parker makes up for it with his fearless play and his speed and quickness. His first step is blazingly fast, which means defenders have to give him plenty of room, not wanting to get beaten to the hoop, which opens things up for his very accurate jump shot.
 
Tony Parker joined Tissot as an Ambassador in 2011. Just like Tony Parker, Tissot has continually surprised and delighted customers with its product innovation, from 1853 to the present day. A relentless pioneering spirit led the company from its foundation in the small Swiss Jura town of Le Locle, to a presence in 150 countries. From its first pocket watch with two time-zones in 1853 to its revolutionary touch-screen technology T-Touch watch, Tissot has presented a series of "firsts" in terms of technology, materials and design - even to the extent of creating watches made of rock, wood and pearl. Today Tissot is a member of the Swatch Group, the world's largest watch producer and distributor. The company has always had its home in the Swiss watchmaking town of Le Locle in the Jura Mountains but now also has a presence in 160 countries. The Tissot innovation leadership is enabled by the development of high-tech products, special materials and advanced functionality. With a broader, more versatile range of high-quality timepieces at an attractive price than any other Swiss watch brand, Tissot also expresses its commitment to making excellence accessible. In its revolutionary new global campaign, Tissot rewrites the rules of watch advertising. Using the claim "In touch with your time", a series of executions featuring brand ambassadors, including Tony Parker, present luxury as being accessible rather than exclusive – while Tony Parker looks forward to a long relationship with the great folks at Tissot.

Sail with Tissot Sailing Touch

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:10:00 AM in Tissot (37)

There’s just something intrinsically calming about life on the water and if you like the thought of watching the sunset or seeing the first stars pinprick the night’s sky, then you’re probably going to enjoy your time afloat. While you’re at it, you are closer to nature than ever with dolphin pods playing alongside your yacht, colorful coral teeming with tropical fish and white sand islands literally packed full of birdlife ensure that you’re never far away from close encounters of the animal kind. 
 
But of course, you can only truly relax if you are at ease with things to come. So don’t forget your Tissot Sailing-Touch with you. The maritime theme navigates its way through the watch's entire design, from metal elements taking the lines of yachts to cleat-shaped pushers. A practical bi-material bracelet has a safety clip and even an extension so that it can be worn over wet-weather gear. There can’t be any finer ways to relax than sitting on the edge of a yacht with the sun on your back and the Tissot Sailing-Touch on your wrist.
 
Come see it at Schiffman’s in Winston-Salem.

Race with the T-Race

Posted by Schiffman's at 2:00:00 AM in Tissot (37)

 

Whether you’re just beginning to experience life or a long-time competitor, at some point in time we all have to race in this so called “track of life.” But some bring a long a little luck once in a while. With Tissot T-Race, you don’t have to be a runner to race through life, you will always be a winner on and off the circuit. Of course, that’s figuratively speaking. Literally though, the watch is designed to help any type of athlete train. A built-in chronograph can help track your best times, a tachymeter bezel can measure your speed and distance, and the water resistance will protect the watch's internal mechanisms while you are swimming. It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional cyclist, motorcyclist, or just simply love to ride along the street, a T-race watch will be your best pick! 
 
In other words it is a “sporty” man’s sports watch.  Come see it at Schiffman’s in Downtown Greensboro.
