Tissot T-Touch Expert Review


   
Tissot T-Touch Expert Watch Review
  The Tissot T-Touch Expert mens watch is quite possibly one of the best “tool watches” made. This watch is pure function and manages to be aesthetically pleasing at the same time. Let’s start with the manly features of T-Touch Expert. The expert has a Barometer, Altimeter, Compass, Chronograph, Alarm, and Thermometer. As the name suggest simply touch the crystal at the 12, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 o’clock positions to operate any of these functions. My favorite feature of the T-Touch is the compass, when engaged the minute hand swings freely functioning as the directional hand. Rounding out this tactile watch there is a Perpetual Calendar, Luminous hands, LCD backlight, and 2nd time zone. It is powered by a quartz battery, these features could never happen with a mechanical watch. The model pictured is the 43mm stainless steel version, with bidirectional rotating bezel and scratch resistant sapphire crystal. 
  Watches And Reviews is heavily geared around mechanical watches. Sometimes there is a watch that is not mechanical and is still a head turner. This is one such watch! So many functions packed into this watch, yet it does not come across busy. Well thought out and easy to read. Most of all the T-Touch Expert does what it is meant to do, function.

Pros - Functional, legible, more options than you will probably ever user 

Consideration - Would prefer a 22mm lug width to aesthetically support the case
