rotorcraft will participate at this premier aviation event, which annually

features more than 10,000 airplanes and attendance surpassing 500,000. As

an innovator in the watchmaking industry with a series of "firsts" it was a

natural fit for the watch brand to embark on this exciting partnership with

watches, which integrate a touch screen crystal, the interactive 'cockpit'

of the timepieces' diverse functionality. Since its introduction, the

Tissot tactile range has continually strengthened its technological

leadership by bringing this innovation to a wide range of contemporary

designs, created with dynamic and stylish materials.

will launch the T-Touch Expert. Tissot successfully pushes its tactile

technology to new limits. The T-Touch Expert, with an enlarged case

diameter, comes in different model variations with carbon or white dials

Expert is a high-precision instrument that will appeal to those in the

aviation world and the outdoor adventurer, offering the ideal combination

of high-tech functionality and ease of use. More than just a watch, it

offers 15 separate functions, activated by pressing on the crown and then

on the touch-sensitive screen. The wearer has direct access to absolute &

relative pressure with weather forecast, altimeter (in feet and meters),

altitude difference meter, chronograph (split and cumulative time), timer,

azimuth (heading), compass, two alarms, thermometer (in degrees C and

degrees F), date and time (measured on the 12-hour or 24-hour scale),
