The next Tissot T-Touch replica watch will be the T-Touch people have been wanting for years. Since its introduction over a decade ago, the T-Touch has been the good looking Swiss gadget replica watch of choice for many people drawn to its handsome design and multifunction touchscreen display with features such as a compass, chronograph, altimeter, calendar, and more. For the first time in about five years, Tissot has announced a major evolutionary step in the collection with the upcoming release of the T-Touch Expert Solar.
One of the chief features people have been asking for in a T-Touch replica watch is solar power generation for the Swiss quartz multi-function movement. Casio’s ProTrek collection is a lower-end competitor of the T-Touch. It has featured solar (all light really) power regeneration for the battery for a very long time. This allows you to be free from battery changes, which totally upgrades the range of situations that a T-Touch Export Solar is appropriate for.
Like Citizen Eco-Drive replica watches, light passes through the dial of the T-Touch Expert Solar. What you are seeing is an early prototype model, so the dial will be enhanced greatly. Tissot will be able to create a lot of dial variety that still allows for light to pass through it. Tissot T-Touch replica watches are really all about touching the dial. The sapphire crystal acts as a touch screen to use each of the functions. I reviewed the original T-Touch Expert model here a few years ago for you to get a good idea of how the system works.
Pressing the middle pusher activates the touch screen. Pressing the labeled areas activates those features, which touching the center activates other settings and allows for adjustment of the replica watch. If you have familiarity with the T-Touch family then you will immediately be impressed by the speed of the hands, as well as the precision of the touch operations. Note that this piece is an early prototype, and some of the feature touching zones were not properly mapped so that pressing them activated adjacent functions. You get the idea however and can see how quick the hands are. It is a major improvement and it is good to know that Tissot has been working hard to improve upon one of their top selling pieces over the last few years.
An interesting detail on the replica watch is the “Smart replica watch” label engraved on the caseback (which again is in prototype form). No, this isn’t technically a smart replica watch by the generally agreed upon current definition (as one that features connectivity to other devices and/or the internet), but with a ‘circled R’ registered trademark symbol included in the mark on the case, it is interesting to think about what the Sreplica watch Group has in store for its future in the smartreplica watch business.
You’ll no doubt notice that the new LCD screen portion of the dial is much larger, as well as flush with the dial (compared to being a bit lower on older models). The negative LCD display has brighter indicators as well. The flat design looks very nice and helps bring the display more into the main part of the face. Functionally Tissot has mentioned that pretty much everything in the original T-Touch is here, along with some of the features that later models had, such as the regatta yacht racing feature as well as a lap counter for the chronograph. We will be able to list the final features when the T-Touch Expert Solar has its final release in the near future.
