Tissot, founded mid-nineteenth century in a small town in Le Locle, one of the cradles of Swiss watchmaking, has a rich and fascinating history. On July 1st, 1853, Charles-Félicien Tissot, fitter of gold cases, founded the comptoir Ch. Félicien Tissot & Fils, with his son Charles-Emile Tissot, a watchmaker. At that time, Tissot works as a comptoir d’établissage, which consists of a network of independent workers who are highly specialised and who produce the different watch parts at home, that are further assembled and sold at the comptoir. Back then, Tissot timepieces are pocket watches, luxurious pendant watches or complication watches, destined mainly for the United States, which is the first market. Then, Russia becomes the main outlet of the brand. At the end of 1917, the limited company Chs. Tissot & Fils SA is created and becomes a manufacture with the introduction of movement-blanks production, which it will remain for decades. Before long, the company strengthens its presence worldwide.
