Tissot retains racing star Danica as brand ambassador

Premier Swiss watch brand Tissot is proud to announce the partnership renewal of its brand ambassador racing star Danica Patrick.

She endeared herself to the world when she made history by becoming the first woman ever to win a race in the sport of U.S. open-wheeled racing by clinching her victory in the Japan 300.

For the watchmaker, Danica Patrick has always been a champion. In 2005, Patrick became the first female U.S. "Ambassador" for Tissot.

In anticipation of the Indy 500 and to pay homage to Danica, the watch company is proud to announce that it will sign a two year contract extension with the IndyCar Series Star on Friday May 16, 2008 demonstrating both its pride and commitment to this empowering icon.

IMS (Indianapolis Motor Speedway), home of the historic Indianapolis 500 will serve as a fitting backdrop for this unique occasion. Francois Thiebaud, President of Tissot Worldwide journeys to the United States from Switzerland to jointly sign the extension of the contact with Danica.

At that time, he will personally present Danica with her new Tissot PRC 100 Limited Edition watch that bears her name. The watch includes 27 glittering diamonds on a mother-of-pearl dial.

Partnering with Danica was a natural fit for the brand that shares the same values of precision, performance and pushing the limits.

Danica's personality and accomplishments compliment that of Tissot's. She is the perfect muse for the Swiss watch brand's collection which is a blend of sophistication, sport and style. Tissot also has had a strong link to the world of motorsports for decades.
