Baselworld 2010 Preview Tissot Sailing Touch
February 17, 2010
By simply touching the dial, sailors will now be able to confront any weather with style. The Sailing Touch is a useful instrument for checking the weather conditions with its integrated histogram of the six previous hours and a function for measuring relative air pressure. It is also equipped with a calculator that indicates the tides in the port of destination. But that is not all! This formidable tactile instrument is indispensible for regattas, with its countdown function for those crucial ten minutes preceding the start of the race, signaled by both beeps and a digital display. The impressive range of functions also includes a mechanism for measuring speed over a given distance, a compass, two alarms, two time-zones, a perpetual calendar and back-lighting.
