The most successful Tissot’s series – the T-Touch Collection received the newest member. For 2012, the Swiss manufacturer, owned by the Swatch Group, launched the new model, called the T-Touch Classic Watch.
The new T-Touch has a stunning exterior. It is housed in a round, masculine case crafted from stainless steel. The case has the diameter of 42 mm and it is 12.15 mm thick. The watch case is domed with a scratch resistant sapphire crystal and preserves water resistance up to 100 meters (330 feet).
This year’s model also has a cleaner, almost “classic” look. On the right side of the case, there is a screw-down crown and two pushers which are meant to look a little bit vintage. For the wristlet, you can choose between 20 mm wide strap or bracelet.
Multifunctional Watch with 11 Tactile Functions
This newcomer comes with a more high-tech appeal and timeless looks. The new watch uses the same movement like the last year’s model from this range – the Racing-Touch. The Swiss-made ETA E49.301 quartz multi-function movement provides time, a full calendar, a compass, a tide chart, a chronograph with split time and a logbook, two alarms, two countdown timers, a second time zone, and it has a back light.
The latest member of the T-Touch Family boasts an analog dial combined with an LCD screen. The dial does not look to have lume, but the screen has a back light which can be activated for darkness viewing of the dial. Although it has 11 tactile functions, this watch features a simple and uncluttered dial which comprises (besides LCD screen) baton-shaped hour markers and skeletonized hour and minute hands.
The Swiss manufacturer offered three versions of T-Touch Classic. The model with the referent number T083.420.11.057.00 matches a classic three-link designed stainless steel bracelet and a black dial. Two other versions are attached to comfortable leather straps. T-Touch Classic with the reference T083.420.16.011.00 sports a brown leather strap and a silver dial, while the model with the referent number T083.420.16.051.00 comes with a sleek, black strap and a matching dial color.
The T-Touch Classic has a very sporty style like all models from the T-Touch collection. It is intended for the sporty gentleman and it can be worn at almost any occasion, from golf courses to cocktail parties.
The retail price depends on a model and it is in the price range of between $675, for the model with a steel bracelet, and $695, for the versions with leather straps. For additional purchasing information check Tissot stockists or visit their webshop site http://us.tissotshop.com/
