Solar watches exist on air and light alone! Those various watches have nearly invisible solar cells which gain their energy in an absolutely environmental friendly way. The quartz gear inside of the solar watch – sometimes supported by radio control – are a guarantee for very high accuracy. Different materials give each solar watch for women and men a unique style that will match your taste as well. Forget the clock-makers address. Your watch works completely self-sufficient.
A solar watch for men or women will let you shine
If you think of a sundial when you hear the word solar-watch you are mistaken! Modern solar watches are a technical wonderwork and they work nearly self-sufficient. Inside a solar watch there is a quartz gear, just like the one you find it in nearly each electro-mechanic watch. Basically it works like this: There is a quartz crystal inside a watch that moves in a constant frequency when it gets in contact with electric energy. The quartz’ swinging keeps the mechanic part of the watch - the gearwheels- moving. Usually the quartz gets its electronic energy from a battery but the solar watch uses sun energy instead. The receptors are placed in the watch’s dial but they do not look like the solar plates you can see on roofs sometimes. For a watch they use nearly invisible solar cells unless the typical look of a solar plate fit to the watch’s design. Especially solar watches for women do not use a technical look because it would undermine an elegant design.
Does a solar watch work without a battery?
They do! The solar watch is permanently loaded because there is some sunlight around you everywhere. If you are in darkened rooms very often you should choose a solar watch that works with artificial light as well. Further solar watches have a so called power reserve. You might know a thing like that from automatic watches, it can save the energy of the day when it is dark at night. Otherwise the watch would stand still. If you need more security you can decide for a radio-controlled solar watch, it gets the right time via radio signals and it readjusts itself if it has the wrong time.
Features and designs of solar watches are as diverse as never before
The solar-run work of the watch needs only a little space and does not influence the possibilities of design. Men’s watches often have a visible solar cell because it fits to the watch’s design and its modest colours. A clockwork does not need much energy, for that a solar watch provides some additional functions. Solar chronographs can be used as stop watch or tachymeter, other frequent functions are calendar or small second. Digital solar watches provide a pulse meter, step counters or a GPS function – and a price according to this features. You have to keep in mind that you cannot offer the same variety of functions like a smartwatch does but you have an accessory that is environmental friendly and low maintenance. Thanks to its quarts gear the solar watch is more accurate as an automatic watch. Is you like a sportier design you should take a digital solar watch with a large display, a synthetic case and a silicone bracelet. It is not only very resistible but usually water resistant as well. An especially noble look is characteristic for solar watches made of stainless steel, on the other hand a leather bracelet appears a bit more classical. A ladies solar watch can be decorated with rhinestones and it usually has a dial in light colours. Additional to classic styles there are some creators presenting more extraordinary looks with an analogue or digital display.
