Ready for the wilds or the big city, the Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar II is equipped with a solar panel to recharge the battery with sunlight or artificial light, and can last up to a year without either. This means you can rely on the 20 tactile functions it offers, without worrying the power will run out in a moment of need.
The compass will guide you, and the altimeter with difference meter will show you how far you have climbed and what risks you may be facing along with the absolute and relative air pressure indicator. There’s also a regatta function, backlight, chronograph add/split/lap, azimuth, logbook, timer, 2 alarms, 2 time zones, perpetual calendar with day and week indicator. A true instrument.
Military or Navy
Like true camouflage, the watch is designed to blend into the environment. There is a Military green version that features a compass rose on the top half of the dial for adventures on land. And for expeditions at sea, there’s a Navy blue model, which has double baton indices on a dotted background, contrasted by lines on the top center of the dial with a minute indicator in-between.
Both have matching scratch-resistant ceramic bezels with a luminescent compass rose. The silicone bracelets make them comfortable and easy to clean, while adding to their toughness is the titanium case which is extra-light and hypoallergenic.
The standard buckle can be used to tie the watch to a rucksack in extreme conditions. Price TBC at Baselworld.
