Cool Compass watch

What is the ID of an analog watch with compass worn by the Myles Leland character on Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye. ? [Spoiler inside]

In the episode "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" Myles is riding in the back seat of a car in Kuala Lumpar escorting a prisoner. Just before the ambush is sprung he's shown looking at his watch.

The watch is silver or stainless with a black or blue dial and white hands. There are no numbers on the dial just white squares at 10, 12, 2 and probably the rest of the way around. The bezel has engraved N,E,S,W at approximately 2, 4, 8 and 10. The strap is the expandable metal type also stainless. Above the square at 2 is written altimeter.

He appears to either press down on the face or press a button at the 2:00 position. After he does so the hands spin around and form a needle pointing at the S marker which prompts Myles to ask the driver why they are going south.

Anyone know what kind of watch this is?

Did it serve as a clock prior to him hitting the button? Have you browsed through Froogle's listing of wristwatch compasses to see if one matches what you saw?

I tried to dig up some contact information for the show, but it's no longer in production ... series ended in 2005 and everyone's been dispersed for nearly two years now.

Response by poster: Yes it seems to be a regular watch until spy mode compass is engaged.

Best answer: I bet its a Tissot T-Touch. Google Image it and see...
