Tissot T-Touch Solar Expert

At Baselworld it seems that functionality takes a back seat to looks, but the T-Touch Solar is a triumph in both. The newest version of Tissot's popular T-Touch line (you can paw the face like an iPhone to toggle functions), is powered by light. Just one week in the sun will keep the quartz movement going for a year – as well as on board features like a compass, altitude reader, timer, and air-pressure sensor. [Starting at $1,150; tissot.com]
