Tissot capped off a stellar Singapore launch for its NBA collaboration watch with the exclusive Tissot Basketball Clinic on October 31.
National basketball player, Wong Wei Long, one of the key faces of the collaboration watch in Singapore, led the clinic along with his team of coaches at Scholar Basketball Academy. Here’s what you missed.
Tissot’s long-standing partnership with NBA as official timekeepers has brought about covetable watches for avid basketball fans. But there’s been none quite like the all-new Tissot Chrono XL NBA Collector. For its launch in Singapore, the watchmaker once again shone the spotlight on basketball and the sport’s passionate fans.
Basketball may have originated from the streets, but there’s no denying the classiness of the modern game. On October 31, the participants at the Tissot Basketball Clinic swopped an evening at the neighborhood basketball court for a taste of the game at the top level. And the elevated experience was second to none thanks Tissot’s touch of class – from the jerseys provided down to the Tissot-branded backboard.
While the collaboration watch was the highlight, it was professional basketball player Wong Wei Long who was the star of the evening. On the court, participants got up close and personal with the national team captain and founder of Scholar Basketball Academy (SBA), intent on feeding off his invaluable knowledge and experience at the top level.
All in all, the Tissot Basketball Clinic conducted by SBA was nothing short of the complete experience, equipped with official NBA Spalding basketballs and a tailored professional training program for participants. A full-court game alongside Wei Long and his team of coaches rounded off the exclusive clinic. Plus, stand-out participants handpicked by the coaches walked away with a Spalding basketball too.
But at the end of the session, each and every participant had the experience of a lifetime to take home with them besides the Tissot jersey and other merchandise.
