Your team, your strap
Tissot has been the NBA’s Official Timekeeper since 2015 and this year, to celebrate this longstanding partnership as well as the league’s 75th Anniversary season it decided to enrich one of its most iconic sports watches the Tissot SuperSport, with 23 exciting, vibrant new straps, expressing Tissot’s love for the NBA.
A must have for NBA fans is the Wilson ® Edition strap, crafted from the same leather used to make the official game ball of the NBA The collection features straps inspired from the uniforms of 11 different NBA teams; New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers Miami Heat, Chicago Bulls, Portland Trail Blazers, Dallas Mavericks, Boston Celtics, Golden State Warriors, Toronto Raptors, Milwaukee Bucks and Denver Nuggets.
To personalize the look even further, the collection also includes straps for the 11 teams featured that are inspired by the 2021 22 Nike NBA City Edition uniform s which celebrate the league’s 75th Anniversary season. These easy, versatile, fun to wear straps will add a vibrant twist to the iconic look of the black SuperSport.
With this strap collection, wearers will be able to preserve the style of the Tissot SuperSport Chrono (a 45.5 mm quartz chronograph with a black PVD coated stainless steel case that comes on a bracelet as standard), and also to change up their watch to suit their look and mood. In total, fans will have four bracelet and strap options: the SuperSport’s original metal bracelet, the two strap editions tied to their favourite franchise, and the Wilson ® Edition basketball leather strap.
