Some watch brands really understand the need to protect the environment and go solar. Tissot has harnessed the power of light — and touch — and delivered it in a good-looking, highly functional watch: the Tissot T-Touch Solar Expert watch.The watch offers the brand’s proprietary tactile-touch abilities. That is, all functions are activated simply by the touch of the crystal. Via some pretty high-tech electrical functions, circuits, charges and other systems, when the wearer touches the crystal in different points, the designated function is displayed.
Additionally, the T-Touch Expert Solar absorbs light to power the watch. As light easy shine on the dial, the SuperLuminova® hands and indexes not only get their glow, but also the light serves to recharge the watch. Functions of this watch include a perpetual calendar, two alarms (one for the weekdays and one for the weekend), two time zone indications, weather, altimeter, chronograph, compass, backlight and more. Function, ergonomics, tactile abilities and solar power — all wrapped up in an anti-magnetic titanium case with black PVD coating. Retail: $1,150.
