Tissot made news in 1999 with the T-Touch and its touch-screen functions. Since then the original T-Touch has expanded into a collection of watches with a wide range of functions. Last year, with the launch of the Expert Solar, Tissot branched out into solar-powered technology. The power will almost never run out since the watch needs only 16 minutes of sun for daily operation. Fully charged, it will run for an entire year, even in the dark. read more

Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33

Space travel will remain a dream for most of us, but the dream came true for the German geophysicist Alexander Gerst. This European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut experienced his first tour on the International Space Station (ISS) in 2014. He conducted experiments for almost half a year and photographed the earth in new and fascinating ways. Photos show Gerst floating through the ISS wearing the Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33. This watch follows in the footsteps of the multifunctional Speedmaster X-33 and the Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch, which was part of every manned moon landing.

The Skywalker was specially developed for astronauts. In addition to the analog time display using hands, the digital display shows three different time zones and has three alarms, a chronograph, countdown timer, date, mission-elapsed time (MET) and phase-elapsed time (PET). The 45-mm case is made of lightweight grade 2 titanium. read more
