Up Close With The Tissot T-Touch Solar Expert, The Perennial Hiking Watch For ...
For years the Tissot T-Touch line has been Switzerland’s unique answer to the quartz hiking watch. While other manufacturers offered analog quartz pieces, Tissot has been the only company that has tried to take on the altimeter-barometer-thermometer uber watches made by Casio, Seiko and Citizen. And they’ve done a great job so far.
The latest model is the Tissot T-Touch Solar Expert. It is a direct successor to the T-Touch expert except that it has a rechargeable battery and a solar face that creates a trickle of electricity that will keep the watch running without a change for years.
As the name suggests, the T-Touch has a touch sensitive face that allows you to activate various features by tapping near the labels around the bezel. This model has a compass, timer, altimeter, and barometer which includes a fairly accurate external thermometer. When you tap the function both hands immediately swing into action at a surprising speed. The coolest feature is undoubtedly the compass which whirrs into place and then begins showing your orientation.
As a watch snob, however, I still prefer the T-Touch’s understated face and unique interface. Tapping the screen activates the little hands quickly and accurately and the watch is easy to set because the hands move in minute increments for the first 60 minutes and then advances one hour per second for setting international time zones. It’s a lot of fun. The solar feature is admittedly nice but Tissot doesn’t offer much of a discount on the non-solar versions. Sadly, the vagaries of Swiss pricing means that even the non-solar version of the watch costs $1,200, which means your only recourse in getting this cheaper is to look for a used model online.
