I like solar powered watches and this is my first Seiko in this category.
The watch has a 120 click per revolution unidirectional rotating bezel. It is also 42mm in case diameter with a 20mm between lugs width for band fitting. I mention this as another Amazon listing for this watch, and one for the SNE107 which is identical except for dial color, are incorrect in the listing of these dimensions.
The watch body is high polish stainless steel while the rotating bezel is a brushed finish on the top surface. The day and date line up well with one another in the calendar window. The orange color of the dial is not as bright as the Seiko "Orange Monster" automatic mechanical watch. This is due to this solar powered watch needing a dial that allows light to reach the solar cell located behind the dial.
I wish Seiko offered this orange dial version of the watch with the steel bracelet as well as with the the rubber strap. The black dial version is available both ways.
