DUDLEY, England, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The UK's largest watch website has filmed full 360 degree videos of the majority of its Tissot watches, now available to view online.

This allows visitors to the Watch Hut to view each recorded watch as a full revolution, meaning anyone seeking to purchase a Tissot watch can experience it beyond a 2D image before deciding to buy.

Just in time for Christmas, the uploaded videos are sure to be a great help to shoppers preparing to buy watches for loved ones on their gift list, as they can narrow down options by simply clicking 'play'.

The motion capture process results in an individual video comprised of over 30 stills joined together, which can then be paused by the potential buyer so every aspect of the watch - from fine dial detail to clasp type – can be inspected by their own eyes.

The videos are the perfect shopping aid when it comes to a brand like Tissot watches, many of which are specialist and are a considerable amount of money to buy. The video clarifies for the user the watch's aesthetic which, when viewed alongside the detailed technical specifications, provides the closest idea of the watch's look and capabilities one can get without actually trying it on.

As one of the website's bestselling brands, the Tissot watch collection was one of the first to be filmed for inclusion on the website earlier this year. However, the past few months have seen an increase in the number of videos filmed and uploaded per day, so that most brands featured on the Watch Hut are now accompanied by product videos.

For over 150 years, Tissot watches have been at the forefront of the Swiss watchmaking industry. The Watch Hut has a longstanding reputation as a Tissot specialist. As an authorised Tissot dealer, the Watch Hut guarantees that all Tissot products purchased are genuine.
