Watches at the Movies - Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is the fifth instalment of the high-octane Mission Impossible films starring Hollywood legend, Tom Cruise. Could this be Ethan Hunt’s last assignment? Who can say? But it's going to be one hell of a ride.
Now, the reason why we’re so interested in this film is not only because we’re all a bit crazed on the spy gear, but that featured in this film is a watch from one of our very own collection of Tissot T-Touch Watches. If you watch the trailer very closely and pause it bang on the 12 second mark, you will see the watch everyone’s been talking about, featured on the wrist Brit actor Simon Pegg – Ethan Hunt’s sidekick Benjamin (Benji) Dunn – who uses this watch to time himself at the start of his dangerous mission.
As the name suggests, this collection of watches has touch-screen capability, as well as incorporating solar energy to power the watch. It’s a collection for the adventurous among you, with features including an altimeter to measure the altitude above sea level, barometer to indicate weather changes, compass, chronograph function to time up to a 100th of a second, perpetual calendar, timer and alarm, as well as 100m water resistance. Now that’s a collection of watches that really packs a punch in the techno steaks.
Depending on your personal taste, we have some great designs for you to have a look at, each one benefiting from various aesthetics in terms of colour and material. So take a look at our collection of Tissot T-Touch Watches and unleash your inner spy.
