The new T-Navigator automatic watch combines the aviator style with a modern timekeeping technology. This year’s novelty from Tissot looks great on a man’s wrist of the average size and it also perfectly fits with any wardrobe.
This watch from the T-Sport collection is animated by the well-known ETA 2836-2 automatic mechanical movement with the time, day and date functionality.
The movement is housed in a round case, made of stainless steel and topped by a black PVD bezel with engraved compass markings. The rotating navigational bezel is very useful and it can help to steer you into the right path, for example. The masculine case has 44 mm in diameter and it is 12.6 mm thick. On the left side, the case incorporates a crown, also made of steel. The water-resistance of the case is assured down to 100 meters (330 feet) below water surface.
A Plain and Simple Look, Combined with a Big Attention to Details
The T-Navigator timepiece can be worn either with a black rubber strap, or with a gray stainless steel bracelet with a folding metal clasp. Each of them is neatly integrated into the case.
A modern and uncluttered dial comes in black color, either with white or orange accents. The orange model T0624301705701 is more bold and eye-catching, while the model T0624301705700 sports a black and white combination which is more appropriate for daily wear. For those who rather prefer wristwatches accessorized with metal bracelets, the right choice might be the model with the referent number T0624301105700. As you can see in the image below, it looks very desirable.
The dial comprises tad short hour and minute hands, coated with Superluminova, a thin second hand, as well as enlarged Arabic numerals at the quarter hours. That makes it perfectly legibly even in total darkness.
There is also a wide day/date aperture, set at the 3 o’clock position. Unfortunately, there is not a full calendar, so you will have to correct it manually, five times a year.
The face of the watch is protected with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and it will surely be readable after a long time of heavy use.
In my opinion, the back of the watch sports the most interesting design. It has a transparent case-back that provides a good view on the turbine blades-shaped winding rotor.
Whichever model of T-Navigator automatic watch you choose, the quality is guaranteed. Also, I dare to say, it is relatively affordable with the price tag of $895.
