Charles-Émile Tissot left for Russia in 1858 and succeeded in selling their savonnette pocket watches across the Russian Empire. The Tissot company was also the first to make watches out of plastic, stone, mother of pearl, and wood. Tissot merged with Omega in 1930 and Tissot-Omega watches from this era are sought after by collectors.
