New Delhi [India], Sep 1 (ANI-NewsVoir): It was a special day for the visitors at DLF Promenade when renowned actor Sushant Singh Rajput visited the Tissot Shop-in-Shopat Kapoor Watch Company on Thursday. On this occasion, he was presented with the classic Tissot Le LocleRegulateur watch.

Expressing his thoughts, Sushant Singh Rajput said, "Tissot is one of the most aspirational brands for many people, including me. So when I was offered the opportunity to represent Tissot here, I was thrilled. I always wanted to own a Tissot and this Tissot Le LocleRegulator makes it even more special. I was told the fascinating story behind it, which makes me feel likeI am wearing both a piece of art and history."

Referencing Tissot's rich watch making heritage, while looking resolutely forwards, the Tissot Le LocleRegulateur is a member of the popular Le Locle family of watches, named after Tissot's home in the Swiss Jura Mountains.

Thoughtful design ticks, including the watch's big hand, which indicates the minutes, nod to the original Regulateur, a clock used in workshops in the eighteenth and nineteenth century as reference to check the accuracy of pocket watches.

At that time, watches were not as accurate as they are today. They varied in terms of minutes rather than seconds, which is why the minute was the most accurate quantification. This piece reflects that by placing the small counter, which indicates the seconds, at the bottom of the dial, while the hour counter is at the top.

Priced at Rs. 50,700, the distinct style of the Tissot Le LocleRegulateur means it is sure to appeal to watch lovers. It's time to add elegance to the everyday. (ANI-NewsVoir)
