Seiko’s solar-powered watches are one of the best-selling watches and Seiko SNE529 is one of them.
This budget-friendly watch has a 10-month power reserve, so you’ll never have to worry about your watch running out of battery. It is simply because any light source can power this timepiece.
Another great thing is its compact size. The watch is suitable for most wrists, as it comes in the popular 40mm case size. There is also a date and a day of the week displayed at the three o’clock position.
Brown leather bands pair beautifully with the green dial, gold hands and indexes of the watch. It also features a analog display and stainless steel case material.
Overall appearance is just beautiful, and with these color combinations, the timepiece exudes with classiness.
The sapphire crystal of the watch is, of course, included, but it does not have the greatest anti-reflective coating. In strong light, there is unfortunately a glare. This watch is suitable for a variety of occasions; it may be worn as a formal watch or as an everyday clock.
When it comes to the price, it belongs to budget watches since you can buy this beautiful timepiece for around $240.

This timepiece has a round shape with a dial window crafted from antireflective sapphire. It has mother-of-pearl hands framed in gold while the dial is beautifully colored in mother-of-pearl. Such a combination gives this analog an elegant retro look.

Probably our favorite feature of this timepiece is the luminous hands. The simple silver hands are covered with a luminescent coating, giving you the possibility to see the time even in the dark. However, the hands are not strong enough to create reflection, which is, again, a problem for many watches.
The bezel and band of the watch are made from stainless steel, powered up with a Japanese Quartz mechanism. There is also a window for the date at the three o’clock position.
Silver-toned indexes and hands give it a masculine note of sapphire crystal simplicity.
