For years, the main complaint people had about Tissot T-Touch watches was that their Japanese competition features solar power generation, while the Tissot T-Touch needed a battery change. I agree that this was an issue, and even if you needed to change the battery each 1.5 - 2 years, it was still a pain. Tissot worked with ETA (both part of the Swatch Group) to develop a T-Touch movement that was powered by light. Finally, in 2013, Tissot debuted to me a working prototype of what would eventually be known as the Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar. In 2014, Tissot was ready to release the Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar (hands-on here) with a new model that would top out the long-standing T-Touch collection. With this top-of-the-line T-Touch model, fans could finally enjoy a T-Touch watch with light power generation that didn't require a battery change.

Winding and setting are done without a crown and instead rely on the rotating sapphire case back for control over the movement. Once set, the new Type 3 offers hours, minutes, seconds, day, date, and oil temperature and, while the dial may appear rather busy, once you know what to look for, it's surprisingly easy to read.
Looking beyond the name itself, you will find that all the new-for-2015 Rolex Oyster Perpetual models are available exclusively in steel and that the different sized versions come with a different range of dial color options. At Baselworld 2015, we went hands-on with the latest, 39 millimeter wide selection of three new watches. Available in a range of sizes at 26, 31, 34, 36 and 39 millimeter wide, they are priced at ,850 for the 26mm, ,400 for the 36mm, and ,700 for the 39mm-wide versions. It is the largest, 39mm version, reference 114300, that we have selected for this feature article because it is the model most men will choose to wear out of all the Oyster Perpetual options.
