The Tour de France starts on Saturday. In this, the world’s premier bicycle race, the color yellow epitomizes excellence. The leader of the Tour is presented with the Maillot Jaune at the end of each stage and it is worn proudly, as a badge of honor as every cyclist in the Tour wants to wear this as often as he can. The yellow jersey not only represents the leader but also is the target for the rest of the field.
This year, the Tour de France’s yellow jersey celebrates its 100th year, and Tissot celebrates this occasion with a special Chrono XL Tour de France Special Edition 2019. This tri-compax quartz chronograph, with two of its subdials in the bright yellow of the Tour de France, contrasting with black for the rest of the dial, comes with two leather straps, one completely black and the other decorated with iconic yellow jerseys from the history of this celebrated race.
The 45mm case of the Chrono XL Tour de France is in grey PVD, and the Tour de France logo is engraved on the caseback.
Tissot is the Official Timepiece and the Official Timekeeper of the Tour de France, and this special Chronograph celebrates this partnership, this race and the overwhelming excellence of every athlete who has competed in the Tour de France.
The world’s greatest cyclists have worn the Maillot Jaune, and the Chrono XL Tour de France Special Editions honors them all. From legendary cyclists to today’s heroes, these riders represent the commitment, the competitiveness and the drive of the riders in the Tour de France.
There’s no denying it, the Chrono XL Tour de France Special Edition is a statement watch, and the statement it is making is that the legacy of the Tour de France lives on. Wear it with pride as Tissot honors and celebrate this year’s Tour, and every Tour that has come before.
