The brand is also very famous to always be known as one of the most experimenting brands, always trying to find new methods in watch making. It was Tissot which produced the first anti-magnetic watch in the Thirties and the first plastic watch was also a Tissot watch made first in 1971. The Alpine Granite Rock watch of Tissot is famous to this day, including its Pearl watch made out of a Mother of Pearl and it even produced a watch made out of wood in 1988.
