Anything else different about the T-Touch 2? There are likely to be a few small changes here and there. I didn't do a side by side comparison of the two models. Dimensions are the same, still at 42mm wide. There are actually a host of models available with various color straps, and of course that cool bracelet. That 30 meters of water resistance should now be a reliable number. Like I said, because Tissot will be replacing all existing T-Touch watches with the T-Touch 2, price should be exactly the same as the outgoing models. Look for them soon.
Plus, the Amortiser Rotor-Lock mechanism is said to protect the chronograph mechanism from damage in falls of up to 5.2 meters! The system was very difficult to engineer, and you won't find anything like elsewhere from a price at all close to the Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster Orbital watch. Aside from that, the watch is tested cold temperatures of minus 40 degrees, resistant to 100 meters under water, resistant to 7,500Gs of velocity force, and highly antimagnetic.
Case is 43.5mm wide and in steel, with polished and satin surfaces. It does actually look quite nice, as does the dial - that would look good if they were to give it a bit more of a traditional looking watch face. There is also a fair amount of lume for actually reading the watch - which is good. Does a piece like this fit into Maurice Lacroix brand DNA? A bit, but many of their pieces go right outside the box.

The black color-coated steel case is actually made nicely. Smooth lines are only broken up by a black-colored Swarovski crystal cabochon in the crown. Then you of course have the bezel - which is lined with a ring of pyramid-shaped spikes. Perfect to go with that spiked dog collar style necklace you've been looking to wear. The back of the watch has an engraved caseback with the Rock Candy and Chouette logos. You also get the number of the watch in the limited edition of pieces.
Functionally, the watch has all the little features you'd expect (that are feasible in an e-ink display). Perpetual calendar, world time in 32 cities, dual time function, and alarms. It even has an LED light so that you can see it in the dark - another first for e-ink watches I believe. Notably missing? A chronograph (stopwatch) feature. There is a good reason for this. Ever seen how fast numbers move on a digital stopwatch? E-ink can't move that fast. Well it probably can, but it would kill the battery. A current draw back of e-ink is the ability for the screen to refresh very rapidly. As such, you can't have information on the screen the needs to change more than one a minute or so. A small price to pay for the tech in my opinion. The future will see all sorts of cool things with e-ink I am sure. Including color screens, and the ability for them to "refresh" rapidly. You can see the tech spec list below for the full list of features.
All chronograph hands in red
There's also a leather strap, model PAG-240B-2, and bracelet, model PAG-240T-7. As with most Pathfinders, it's water resistant to 100m (vs 200m for G-Shocks) and quite comfortable to wear. I tried this one out for an hour of ultimate frisbee, and it was great: easy to read at a glance, and seemingly weightless even when tired.
So there you have it, all the cool stuff that this boating Sailing-Touch watch will provide when it is released soon. Style is modern and fitting with the theme. It is masculine, but won't alienate women either. The movement is specially made for Tissot by ETA and is quartz (both ETA and Tissot are owned by the Swatch Group). Price has yet to be announced by should be in the 00 range (not sure about the price with diamonds though). While it is hard to say just what boating enthusiasts are looking for, a watch like this could quickly be adopted as a sailor's good friend if the functions are easy and accurate enough to use.

The manner in which the movement was designed and implemented is pretty cool. Celsius wanted to make sure that using the phone in some manner worked with the mechanical movement - so the opening and closing part goes to that desire. The tourbillon and the watch movement is supposed to have some manner of shock absorption to protect it from the inevitable roughing around that it will experience. At the same time though, this is a phone you need to be much more careful with. Drop it and the watch movement part of it will likely be kaput. This is the same with all delicate mechanical watches.The movement has sapphire crystal over it and is in a water resistant enclosure.
Back at Baselworld last month I was really excited about seeing one particular timepiece - the Bremont Supermarine 500. When I first learned about the watch sometime ago, I wrote about the Supermarine 500 here, exclaiming that it was the watch that helped me pay attention to the new British brand. The attractive 500 meter water resistant dive watch with a vintage inspired design based on an old seaplane looked like a must have - but I needed to see it in the flesh.

As far as I know Rolex only offered (offers) the Daytona with a meteorite dial in an 18k white gold case - with nice looking red chronograph hands. Not sure if you can find them with the hour markers instead of the Roman Numerals. The case is 40mm wide - which is small to me these days. But For a Daytona I would sport the size with pleasure (especially with a cool meteorite dial). Here you can see it with a nice brown leather strap. Price is about ,000 - ,000, depending on where you can find it.

Looking at the Mandevilla Dance watch I cringe with pain. Why? Because I am reminded of what the tetanus shot will feel like after I cut myself handling this piece of rusty metal that used to be a fishing lure gone terribly wrong.
