Oct 11, 2010, 03:00 ET from The Watch Hut

DUDLEY, England, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Online watch retailer The Watch Hut proudly supports Tissot and the Swiss watch brand's ambassador Nicky Hayden as the closing stretch of the MotoGP tournament approaches.

MotoGP racing star Hayden will ride as part of the Ducati team for a further four races before the climactic final circuit on 7 November; along the way, he hopes to win glory for himself, his team and sponsor Tissot.

The Watch Hut is proud to be an authorised dealer of Tissot watches, supporting the iconic Swiss watch manufacturer and all its sports-related endeavours since the website was launched in 2005.

In June of this year, the Watch Hut's founding company T. H. Baker lived life in the fast lane for a weekend at Silverstone, where it was happy to promote the Tissot brand at its own dedicated stand during the UK leg of the racing championship.

Tissot has developed strong ties with the world of motor sport over the years and, since establishing a strong relationship with T. H. Baker, has had its watches represented by the company at UK MotoGP dates two years in a row.

As an authorised retailer of Tissot watches, the Watch Hut is honoured to offer guaranteed genuine products from one of the watch world's most prestigious brands, embodying over 150 years of Swiss watchmaking craftsmanship.

While Hayden gets into fifth gear ready for the final lap, his specially branded 2010 Special Edition Nicky Hayden T Race Tissot Watch, limited to just 4,999 models and presented in a limited edition helmet presentation box, is still available at the Watch Hut.
