New Tissot Touch Collection Watches

Tissot T-Touch Watches: Traditional with a Touch of Modernity

Long before smartwatches flooded the market, Tissot had already been manufacturing the Tissot T-Touch — a quartz tool watch equipped with a touchscreen. Beyond its rugged and futuristic silhouette, this sports watch has a compass, altimeter, weather, chronograph, and other functions built into its small frame. 

Tissot also produces a diverse collection of watches from the dressy Tissot T-Classic to the athletic Tissot T-Sport. Other pieces that fall under this collection are the Tissot T-Touch Expert, Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar, and Tissot T-Touch Connect Solar

How much does a Tissot T-Touch watch cost?

The majority of the Tissot T-Touch models fall under the $1,000 USD price range, making Tissot highly accessible at fairly affordable prices. Below are a quick glimpse into the prices of four watches:

Price and Features of the Tissot T-Touch Expert Models

The first Tissot T-Touch was released in 1999, a six-function wristwatch that featured analog and digital displays on its tactile sapphire interface. It was the first-ever multifunctional tactile watch with a battery-operated quartz movement. This propelled Tissot to fame amongst watch collectors, a reputation it continues to enjoy today with its subsequent releases.

The T-Touch Expert Ref. T013.420.17.207.00 is one such release, coming in a stainless steel case, orange rubber strap, and deployment clasp. This lineup made several improvements from the original T-Touch. While the digital subdial remains consistent across all successive T-Touch models, a sizable portion is reinforced with black carbon fiber. Apart from the regular timekeeping functions of the luminescent hands and hour markers, the watch also has additional features like the altimeter, an altitude indicator, and thermometer. Other features can be activated by a push of a button on the side of the case. The Tissot T-Touch Expert retails at $975 USD. 

Price and Features of the Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar Models

The Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar watches have small solar sensors that harness energy from the sun to operate. This is connected to the watch dial to capture light stored in an accumulator. Models from this collection are made of solid antimagnetic titanium treated with a PVD finish, along with a rubber strap with a double folding clasp. 

An example is the Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar NBA Special Edition Ref. T091.420.47.207.00, a watch released to celebrate the brand’s partnership with NBA. As expected, this piece appeals to the NBA enthusiast apart from the Tissot buying market. The 45mm diameter case might seem big but since the rubber is attached to the upper portion of the lugs, it won’t feel that cumbersome on the wrist. Quartz movement Caliber ETA E84.301 powers the watch, enabling a total of 20 multi-task functions on the watch. This watch is priced at $1,150 USD.

Prices and Features of the Tissot T-Touch Connect Solar Watches

With the launch of the T-Touch Connect Solar, Tissot introduced a collection of watches that adds on to the functions of the Expert range. Models from this range include the Tissot T-Touch Connect Solar Ref. T121.420.47.051.04 and Tissot T-Touch Connect Solar Ref. T121.420.47.051.03, which retail at a price of $1,029 USD and $1,129 USD, respectively. 

The Ref. T121.420.47.051.01 is a more affordable option, retailing at $999 USD. These watches also come with a solar recharge feature that gives them a power reserve of up to six months. The digital screen only uses a small amount of energy as it is equipped with low-energy memory in pixels. Both made of titanium case and rubber, the 42mm watches would differ in terms of the markers on the dial and bezel as well as the hands. 

The classier Tissot T-Touch Connect Solar Ref. T121.420.44.051.00 replaces rubber with titanium. The watch receives notifications, incoming calls, security lock, etc. Though it comes with these features that are directly connected to your phone, it is fully autonomous. The Connect Solar also made several major updates in the Connect Solar II which included the addition of a timer countdown list from the plain timer, a phone locator function that runs on the watch, and a watch locator function that runs on the phone. This watch is priced at $1,139 USD. 

Prices and Features of the Tissot T-Touch II Watches

The T-Touch II series is Tissot’s latest range of Touch watches, coming equipped with high-tech upgrades. Some of these include weather forecasts and mother-of-pearl dials.

Two such pieces in this series are the Tissot T-Touch II Ladies’ Chronograph Ref. T047.220.44.116.00 and Tissot Touch Titanium Lady Ref. T047.220.46.126.00. Both watches feature a mother-of-pearl dial set with diamonds, one in white and the other in black. These pieces retail at $609 USD and $719 USD, respectively.

History Behind the Tissot T-Touch Collection

The Tissot T-Touch collection started in 1999 with the original T-Touch. This piece combines analog and digital displays with touch screen technology. Such tactile technology makes a range of functions fully operable on the watch even with only three pushbuttons. 

In 2011, Tissot released the T-Touch Expert collection, which added more features on top of the original six. This is followed by the Expert Solar lineup in 2014, featuring solar sensors to increase battery life. 

Successive upgrades incorporate more connectivity features to keep up with technological advancements. The T-Touch Connect series is one such collection, allowing you to connect your phones to their tool watches.

Reasons to Buy a Tissot T-Touch Watch

The Tissot T-Touch collection comprises a series of tool watches that are packed with a range of high-tech features. Thanks to the watches’ solar cells, battery changes are eliminated to give them a longer battery life. These watches are best used for hiking expeditions, owing to their outdoor-oriented features like a compass, altimeter, temperature, distance traveled, and more. 

The Tissot T-Touch watches are also well-suited for formal occasions if you opt for the titanium bracelet, especially the sophisticated dressy Tissot collections like the Tissot PRX and Tissot Heritage
