Baselworld 2014: The Tissot novelties

Tissot Seaster 1000

The Swatch Group brand once again surprised me with its new timepieces. What I have seen is a perfect mix in-between design, quality and price… 

 

You all know that Tissot was the first and still is the only brand to offer a multifunctional quartz watch that the user can set and manipulate by touching the glas. It is enough to activate the touch function by pressing the crown, then you may activate various functions by only pressing with on of your fingers on the glas of the watch. That tactile function is cool and easy to use. If you press for instance at 2 o´clock on the glas of the new Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar you will activate the Altimeter function. by pressing at 6 o´clock you will activate the compass and so on.

The first watch of that kind was presented by Tissot already in the year 1999… Have a look at this overview, I have been photographing it today at the Tissot booth, to discover the models that have been presented since…

So the Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar now is the latest version and the watch recharges its battery through a small solar panel. It is a powerful watch in every aspect, offering essential functions for everyday use such as a perpetual calendar with indication of day and week number to keep track of busy schedules, two alarms; one for the week, the other for the weekend, two time zones for holiday trips, weather forecast with relative pressure, altimeter with difference meter, chronograph lap and split with logbook, compass, timer, azimuth, regatta function and backlight.

The prices start at 725 Euro without VAT

  • Hello! I joust bought this watch and i noticed the same misalignment on the xternal ring at number six. You can see it especially in the photo with the orange rubber band.

    Seeing this in the official photos makes me wonder. Did they simply not care or is it something that I am missing.

    Thanks for any replies. Please feel free to give me instructions on how to handle the issue!

  • Do you have any idea when the TISSOT T-TOUCH EXPERT SOLAR will be available for purchase in Switzerland and Austria?
