Kinda cheap but nice retro look

Summary: The band is stainless steel of decent quality (not magnetic, so a high enough chromium content unlike many poor quality "stainless steel" products from China), but it is very stiff, not super flexible like a good quality watchband.
Summary: I bought this watch because I didn't want to worry about watch batteries. I've had my watch for over 14 months now, and it still works perfectly. Just give the watch a good couple of hours in the sun (or lamp) light when you first receive it, and you're good to go.
Summary: I am ROUGH with my timepieces, my usual timepiece lasts me about 6 months. Well today after a wonderful 2 and a half years of ownership, the clip on the wristband has broken. I can share amazing stories about this watch.
Summary: I got this watch after reading many good and bad reviews. The watch looks very retro and nerdy but I like it. I had to wait until morning to put it under the sunlight to charge it because you can't charge it under your home lights. It won't charge and kept fading in and out.
Summary: Very good product. Mint condition, although I bought a used one. The battery of the watch requires time to recharge and return to normal status (which may cost couples of hours under direct sun burning).

Summary: When you get this watch make sure you try to charge it in direct sunlight, or from sunlight through a window. When I got mine I tried to charge it by my compact flourescent lamp for a few hours but the next day it was dead.
Summary: Love this watch, falls in line with my type of work, Solar, this solar powered watch works just as normal as a battery powered watch, no difference in terms of accuracy, reliability. Good buy.
Summary: You get what you pay for..A Casio with a solar panel adds a little flair. The Only downside would be not having a light, that gets annoying sometimes. But all in all, what you see is what you get. By the way i have Very small wrist and it fits me very well
Summary: This solar watch stinks, it loses power when the sun goes away or any light source goes away so consequently it can't keep time and when the light comes back whatever time was on their last it starts right where it stopped so it could be minutes or hours off.
