Tissot 2009 PRC 100 Michael Owen Limited Edition

In 2009, Tissot marks its eleventh year of successful partnership with English football star, Michael Owen, with a special limited edition watch. The Tissot 2009 PRC 100 Michael Owen Limited Edition teams dynamism with elegance in a stylish chronograph. A sophisticated silver and black colour combination integrates the colours of Michael Owen’s national team and his squad number ‘10’, to bring luck to the 4,999 wearers of this limited edition.

Kicking off a second decade

Tissot is extremely proud that its partnership with Michael Owen is entering its second decade, so the choice of a watch characterized by its precision, robustness and classical style represents the ideal tribute. The angular stainless steel case and the bracelet of the Tissot 2009 PRC 100 Michael Owen Limited Edition are matched with a silver-coloured dial, clearly expressing timeless style. Michael Owen’s national team colour, red, appears at five-minute intervals – at least on the watch’s dial – in the form of tiny, flag-like squares. And at 10 o’clock the dial incorporates Michael’s famous squad number in the form of an over-sized red ‘10’ with the zero housing one of the chronograph counters.

Keeping its eye on the ball

The Tissot 2009 PRC 100 Michael Owen Limited Edition has precision firmly in mind with its Swiss movement inside and meticulous attention to detail on the outside. The date window is at 4 o’clock, the perfect counterpart to its red opposite number at 10 o’clock. Wearers should resist the temptation to keep the watch on at all times, so that they can admire the design of the case back. This is decorated with the geometric shapes of a football’s surface and bears both the edition number and signature of Michael Owen. Every soccer team has 11 players – a successful sporting partnership spanning 11 years is quite an exception and a justified cause for celebration.

Commenting on his long-standing relationship with Tissot, Michael added: “I am proud and honored to be heading into my 11th year as a Tissot ambassador. Tissot are a dedicated team I have come to no longer regard as just a sponsor, but more so, as a close group of people who are exceptional professionals, and who I am pleased to call friends. I have always been impressed by the team, who have made Tissot into what it represents today, a pioneer of innovation, always seeking to be the best it can possibly be, which are values I share and endorse wholeheartedly.”
