SEIKO Solar and the environment

SEIKO Solar is a quartz watch takes its energy from light, stores it in a self-recharging battery which never needs to be changed. By eliminating the need for battery change in a quartz watch, SEIKO Solar makes an obvious and important contribution to the cause of a healthier planet. SEIKO was an early pioneer in solar watch technology, with its first Solar watch being launched in 1977.
