I purchased this watch for my boyfriend as a gift. First off, it came low on charge. It took several days to get it to charge up far enough to even attempt having it set its own time. It doesn't seem to charge much, if at all, by lights of any kind. Sunlight has the best chance of charging it, but even now, its been sitting on a window sill under the sun for days and still isn't above half charge.
This is an annoying enough problem however... Even if you have enough charge, often automatically setting time just fails. It fails enough such that the watch is often off in time (its not a very accurate movement so if it can't re-calibrate its off pretty bad).
On top of that eventually this watch began setting itself to the wrong time entirely. Yes we made sure the timezone was set properly, the watch just became defective. We ended up returning it for a new one. The new one had all the same problems with charging, and failing to set itself. My boyfriend used the watch for quite some time however eventually the charge on the new one ran out, and after some effort getting it charged up above half again, the same problem occured again. So currently this watch is useless, its never charged enough and sets itself to a completely incorrect time.

Its a shame because the watch feels sturdy, and looks very nice. The way the solar panels are part of the design is cool. However it honestly has been a pain in the ass, and now completely doesn't function.

I liked the overall appearance of this watch which is built like a tank. Unfortunately it gained as much as 20 seconds in a 24 hour period between MANUAL updates from the atomic clock radio source. I had to update it manually as it failed to automatically update at night as specified in the accompanying manual.If I neglected to manually initiate the time synchronization with the atomic clock on a daily basis the time would be off by way more than most mechanical watches and certainly more than any other quarts watch. I returned the product for a refund and am looking into other options.

This watch is impossible to charge--put it out in the sun, put it under a sunlamp, stand next to a raging forest fire. It then starts running but cannot acquire the correct time. And the instruction manual was probably written in Swahili originally and then translated into English by someone suffering from dyslexia (and zero knowledge of Swahili)

I like watches and probably buy too many of them. This NYSW watch is a solar atomic watch and after nearly a week I can't get a serviceable charge. When it gets charged the watch uses up all of the power just setting the time to the correct time zone. I wasted nearly $80.00 on this watch. I wouldn't recommend any watch fro NYSW as a toy for children .

The charge feature on this watch takes forever. I love the way it looks, but to get the time set properly takes a lot of patience and recharging. It would not charge through a window, was only able to get it fully charged by hanging it inside a lampshade (with the lamp on for an extended period of time, a week)
