Love this watch!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seiko Women's SUT074 "Dress" Two-Tone Stainless Steel Swarovski Crystal-Accented Solar Watch (Watch)
I was a little worried that this watch might look too big on my wrist. It's not. It looks great, and I love the crystals. Just enough "bling" to be noticed without being gaudy. I'm 67 years old so I need a watch I can easily read, but I like a dressy look, too. This watch fits the bill. I can easily read the time without my reading glasses, and I can read the date WITH my reading glasses. I'm a musician and really need a watch with a second hand. Sometimes that's hard to find in a dressy watch, so I appreciate having one on this watch. The solar battery will be a great plus. I am so tired of watches that frequently need new batteries...I have a drawer full of them, none of them working! I had to have 2 links taken out in order for the band to fit, but my jeweler did it in 5 minutes--no charge. The price I got here on Amazon was the best I could find anywhere. Love this watch and love Amazon!

I'm not familiar with "solar" watches. Does the watch have to be in the light to keep energized? - - -Silly question, I know - - -

Not a silly question! Yes, it uses light to stay charged, but it doesn't have to be direct daylight. It also charges from regular indoor lighting. When you first get the watch, you have to leave it directly under a light source for 24-48 hours, until the battery is fully charged. (I laid my watch on my desk in the den, then turned on the desk lamp directly above it. It took a full 48 hours.) After the initial charging, it's fine just with regular wear during the day... nothing special needs to be done. The booklet says that after it's fully charged, it can last inside a dark drawer for several weeks, although I've never tried this. I wear my watch all the time, so it's always exposed to light during the day. It's fine at night in the dark on my dresser. Hope this answers your question!
