In Die Another Day (2002), Miranda Frost (played by Rosamund Pike) wears a Tissot T-Touch in one of the last scenes of the film. The watch can briefly be spotted during the fencing fight between Frost and Jinx (Halle Berry) in Gustav Graves' airplane. The watch is hardly recognizable, but in a promotional photo of Rosamund Pike which is printed on page 53 of the James Bond Encyclopedia, the watch can be clearly seen. It is a T-Touch with black dial, steel case, three round buttons, 6 squares on the dial instead of numbers, the letters N, E, S, W on the bezel (for the compass function) and a a black rubber band. The movie Die Another Day was filmed in 2002, so the T-Touch model in the film must be the first generation of the T-Touch watch. That is confirmed by the green T logo (that logo became red on newer models). The watch worn by Rosamund Pike looks like the stainless steel model, but a lighter titanium version of the T-Touch is also available.

You can often find the Tissot T-Touch with green T logo on eBay. Make sure to get one that is serviced well as these watches need regular maintenance (opening the watch, replacing the battery should be done by authorised dealers or professionals). The early models of this T-Touch are known to be more prune to technical problems than the later models.

The Tissot T-Touch is a multi-functional watch with a unique touch screen: if you touch the glass in one of 6 locations, you can activate a compass, meteo, thermometer, altimeter, alarm and chronometer. Since the launch of this popular and versatile watch, there have been new versions of the T-Touch, including the II (second generation), the Expert, the Classic and even a whole new range of Touch watches, including the T-Race, Sea-Touch, Sail-Touch. Find T-Touch models online at Tissot.ch, Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk.

The Tissot brand is part of the Swatch Group, which also owns Omega (the company that provides Bond's watches since GoldenEye) and Hamilton and Longines, other watch brands often seen in the Daniel Craig Bond films.

A Tissot T-Touch watch is also worn by Angelina Jolie in the movies Tomb Raider and Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
