Tissot Opens Basketball Concept Store in New York City

Swiss Watch Brand’s Fourth NYC Boutique Uses Innovative Displays
and Marketing to Enthrall NBA Fans

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/ThisIsYourTime?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#ThisIsYourTimelt;/agt;–Tissot, the leading global Swiss watch brand in terms of distribution,
today celebrated the official opening of its fourth New York City
boutique, a concept store dedicated to the brand’s status as Official
Watch and Official Timekeeper of the NBA. The store, with a prime
location in New York’s Midtown neighborhood at 112 W. 34th
Street, pays homage to the style and performance intrinsic to basketball
and endemic of its brand.


Immediately upon entering the 2,800 sq. ft. boutique, a wall of
multicolored basketballs catch the eye, along with action styled
mannequins wearing uniforms from some of the brand’s nine NBA team
partnerships. Larger than life photos of the brand’s athlete partners,
including three-time NBA Champion and five-time NBA All-Star Klay
Thompson, four-time NBA Champion and six-time NBA All-Star Tony Parker
and top rookie Trae Young, grace the walls and the iconic Tissot shot
clock sits atop a court-ready basketball hoop.

When they are not perusing the latest Tissot collections, fans can spend
time playing NBA 2K19, watching an NBA game on the large TV screens or
trying to beat the clock in a mixed reality Tissot Buzzer Beater game to
debut at NBA All-Star 2019 and then to arrive at the new boutique. A
custom art installation, also debuting at NBA All-Star, will then find
its permanent home in the Tissot 34th Street Boutique.

“This is a departure from our traditional merchandising strategy, but
with our continued partnership growth and passion around the NBA, we
wanted to harness that power to showcase our brand in a different
light,” said François Thiébaud, President of Tissot. “We have seen a
tremendous response so far from fans and are excited to see what is to
come.”

The store is open seven days a week from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM. For
