The NBA and Swiss watchmaker Tissot announced a comprehensive multi-year partnership on Monday that both hope will lead to the most complex timekeeping in sports history.

Emilio Collins, the NBA’s executive vice president of global marketing partnerships, said the league was shopping around the deal to find the official timekeeper as it was clear that a more updated technology was needed in an effort to move the system to a more automatic, efficient solution.
