Although I’ve been using wrist watches since the early 90's (back then i only used Casio models as some of you know) i can't really say the same about all the people i know not even about my really close friends. However as we are getting older and time passes us by it seems that habits change and that's perhaps the main reason as to why right now pretty much everyone i know of wears a wrist watch while some even own more than just one. Of course as we are getting older we also try to come up with new ways to avoid doing things that we are bored of and one of those things is without doubt the visit to the local licensed watch store in order to change the battery of our watch. That combined with several job descriptions that require a working wrist watch 24/7/365 is the reason as to why it didn't take long for watch manufacturers to develop several technologies for such use including automatic, kinetic and solar powered mechanisms. According to many people however solar watches can be more reliable compared to automatic and kinetic watches (when it comes to time accuracy) and since these seem to be what people prefer nowadays today we will be taking a look at the SNE093P1 Solar Watch by Seiko.
Since being established in 1881, Seiko has contributed to society with one revolutionary product after another - starting with the production of Japan's first wristwatch in 1913 and including the creation of the world's first quartz watch in 1969. Seiko has also been the official timekeeper at many international sporting events since the Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964. Seiko has been privileged to share moments of tremendous excitement with athletes and spectators worldwide. Today, while watches remain the heart of Seiko's business, its technological expertise in micro-engineering, metallurgy and mechatronics has caused the company to expand into many diverse fields including camera components, other precision instruments, eyeglasses, jewelry, as well as sports and toiletry products. In 2001, in order to be better able to offer even more attractive products to consumers around the world, Seiko's watch division became an independent company, SEIKO WATCH CORPORATION. Watches are our business. Through them, we seek to share our pleasure and pride in production, giving you pleasure and pride in possession, and adding a touch of enchantment to every precious moment.
Just by looking at the Seiko SNE093P1 you know that it's mostly (if not solely) aimed towards people who want an elegant yet lightweight and small to medium sized bracelet watch that will never cease to function just as long as it comes into contact with either natural or artificial light sources. So that's pretty much it so don't expect any extra bells and whistles like we've seen with some other watches (Seiko has a huge line of wrist watches some of which carry more features than you'd possibly ever use). Features left aside Seiko always means quality and so the entire watch is made by high grade stainless steel, is water resistant up to 10bar/100m and uses Japanese Quartz movement mechanism (V158) to keep accurate time. The appearance of a wrist watch however means more to some people than its specifications and features so the time has come to take a closer look at this offering by Seiko.
