Tissot, a Swiss company, has been making fine watches for 150 years. They use ETA SA Manufacture Horlogère Suisse movements. Recently, while researching dive gauge watches I came across these pieces, noticed how remarkably reasonable the prices were on amazon.com and spent the rest of the day assembling this list of multi-function watches for you folks to check out. If you’re a fan of high-tech goodies like I am, you’ll be impressed by all the clever innovations that make these watches technically superior and worth your investment. Tissot is right there with the Japanese when it comes to useful sporty complications but without all the lumpy plastic cases and buttons – the T-Touch operation makes it so much easier to directly access all the features.
The new Protrek PRW-2500 and PRW-2500T (for Japanese distribution – PRW2500-1 & PRW2500T-7 in the US) sport altimeter, barometer, temperature and compass functions with the convenience of solar power and Atomic time-setting. Other features include, world time, tide and moon data, 24 hour stopwatch, 60 minute countdown timer, five daily alarms, 12/24 hour function and full automatic EL backlight. The improved dual-layer LCD display technology enhances readability and allows for denser packing of these wrist computers’ copious information.
Black Titan Limited
