Durable, long lasting solar battery.Good looking design. Water resistant 100m. Day/date-multi lingual settings. VERY light. No noisy kinetic drive mechanism clanging around in this watch.
Battery only lasts for about 2-4 days in total darkness.
I am notoriously bad with watches and take them for quite a ride, therefore I go through watches very quickly.
My wife purchased this watch for me almost 3 years ago and I must say that the silver link watch band has some scuffs and a very small marr on the rim of the watch face glass. Other than that-this has ben one of the best watches I have ever owned!
Looks great, very light and no worried over the batteries yet..
solar powered "eco-drive" no large, clunky kinetic drive mechanism clicking around in this watch. If you store this watch in a dark closet or drawer, you will have to reset it after 2 days or so.
But it recharges fully in direct sunlight in about 4 hours. Indirect or indoor light takes a bit longer, but it begins to work immedately.
A bargain for an "idiot proof" watch.
Steer clear of the kinetic energy drive watches when this is avail for less and requires no maintenance.
