Ideal for travelers and outdoor adventurers, this solar rechargeable watch is enhanced with a battery to ensure accurate time even if it’s stored away from sufficient light sources. It delivers the instant information that travelers need with no drop in split-second precision.


Not available for shipment outside of the U.S. and Canada.


In the U.S., the accuracy and speed that your watch and clock will receive signal updates depends on your proximity to the U.S. atomic clock in Fort Collins, CO. This means that the majority of personal atomic clocks and watches will synchronize only within the continental United States, and may not synchronize correctly in Hawaii or Alaska or on continents other than North America. Personal atomic clocks and watches work only in some areas of Canada and Mexico.


Another limitation of home atomic clocks and watches is that they may not receive the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) signal within large buildings containing steel construction. Moving clocks and watches closer to windows in these types of buildings will usually resolve the synchronization problem.


Bison leather band. 1 3/4" diam. face; 10"L. Battery included. We recommend having a jeweler replace the battery in this watch. It is intentionally challenging to open the case in order to protect the mechanism.


Hands are luminescent (glow in the dark). Water resistant to 165 feet.

Wrong Instructions

By Larey

from Kirkland, Washington

Verified Buyer

Pros

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about Hybrid Solar Atomic Watch:

        The manual that came with the watch is for a three button model and this is the two button version. Following the wrong instructions results in the watch hands not syncing with the digital readout. The two button instructions can be downloaded from the manufacturer's website. The suggested remedy for this model is to bring the watch into a jeweler and have them take out the battery, put it back in and then set the watch within three minutes.
        Had the correct instructions been packed with the watch, I suspect I would be wearing it now.

        the watch is no near useful for daily life. Bulky, low quality built and no functionality (missing all basic functions you want from a electronic watch). Plus the user manual makes me thinkg the watch is from flea market...

            Comments about Hybrid Solar Atomic Watch:

            I like having the accuracy of an electric watch without having to replace the battery and it's great to have the Atomic clock in Colorado keep everything up to date automatically.

Made for display in this glass-domed case, as it would have been kept in a station master’s office. Not intended for precision timekeeping.

              Historians believe that cloisonné was introduced to China by traders from Constantinople and has since evolved into a uniquely Chinese art form. Jewelers apply thin filaments of wire to the band to form floral outlines. This step of the cloisonné process has been compared to embroidery. The outlines are filled with powdered glass enamel and fired at high temperatures to fuse the material and bring out its bright colors. This hinged cuff is adjustable and will fit a range of wrist sizes comfortably. Stainless steel face with nickel-plated band.

              Navajo artisans working in Tempe, Arizona, continue their tribe's long tradition of handcrafted silver work in this watch. Silversmithing is a skill traditionally passed down through generations, and many of today's Navajo silversmiths are continuing a craft first practiced by family members over the past three centuries. Although stones like turquoise, jasper, and lapis are often featured in Navajo jewelry designs, it's the silver work that represents the true spirit of Navajo craftsmanship.

              The Lumi-nox Navy SEAL Original Series Watch came about when the Navy SEALs were looking for a more dependable watch for night missions. Lumi-nox's Swiss luminescent technology was the perfect solution. Unlike other watches that use a luminescent paint or a "push to light" system, Lumi-nox uses micro gas lights (borosilicate glass capsules) that are always lit, ensuring instant readability no matter the conditions.
