Nicky Hayden was a Tissot ambassador, and the Swiss luxury watchmaker celebrated that fact with annual releases of Limited Edition watches inspired by Nicky and his MotoGP career – they had similar arrangements at the time with Danica Patrick and Michael Owen. 2007 was a special year, as the watch came out right after Nicky’s 2006 MotoGP World Championship.
Here’s what Tissot had to say in their Certificate of Authenticity: “In a world where precision and timing are key, Nicky Hayden, the 2006 MotoGP World Champion, certainly knows the importance of counting every second. no surprise therefore that, as Tissot’s ambassador, a dedicated World Champion signature watch should be created for him, with a carbon-fibre dial and bearing his new 2007 race number “ONE” engraved on the case-back with his signature. This watch is presented in a special helmet box in the same matching orange as Nicky’s characteristic team colour.” This example is #8,980 out of 11,111, and it has been worn before (the band has also been cut as it’s quite small).
The sale includes the original box, “helmet” case, International Warranty Service Centers list, carrying bag, User’s Manual, a story of Tissot’s history, and the Certificate of Authenticity.
