Tissot T-Touch Expert Watch Review: The King Of Quartz

Continuing on the true adventure readiness of this watch, it is a true diver's watch with a water resistance of 300 meters. No worries about taking a plunge with it on, and you can easily rely on it. The aluminum and steel caseback of the watch is tightly screwed down to keep water and debris out. The crown is also screw down for protection. The rubber strap is attached via screws to the case making it really secure. You don't get any of that wiggly fit you might experience with lower quality watches. In fact, a few of the people I've show the watch to, especially the ones who don't know much about watches, just kept remarking on how solidly the Linde Werdelin was built.

I am not going to spend a lot of time discussing the design as I could never do it full justice. All Temption watches are a combination of modern minimalism, Bauhaus, and a Japanese aesthetic known as Wabisabi. What you end up with is a distinct look that really does not fall into any one design group, but has a healthy dose of each of them. Seeing the clean lines, you might think the CGK204 design is minimalist, but viewing all the specifically aesthetic design features on the watch, you'd agree it was too designer to be mere minimalism. I'd venture to say that the design of the CGK204 is almost futuristic, maybe not in the most modern of senses, but certainly something out of Star Trek or Star Wars (think of all the instrument panel designs).
