There is a lot to be said for solar watches. Most obviously, they are rechargeable and their batteries last far longer than those in a conventional quartz movement. And just in case there is any confusion about how solar power works, I can assure you that your solar watch won’t stop every time the sun sets. A full charge will keep it running for six months so it won’t miss a beat even if you wear it exclusively outdoors through an arctic winter. The chronograph uses a Seiko VS75 with a 4:30 date, and 24-hour, 60-minute, and small seconds subdials. I tend to prefer my quartz watches with small seconds so that the jumping tick is less obvious. The VS75 chronograph has the added benefit of 1/5th-second sweep hand, which makes its electric operation less apparent.
