Although they may not look alike, these two variations on Seiko’s Solar Chronograph share a common core with the light-powered and quartz controlled chronograph mechanisms within. With an ability to run up to six months without exposure to light, these solar-powered options not only save money and potential damage from a botched battery replacement, both also reduce the potential for pollution in manufacturing and waste associated with disposable power sources. Whether you opt for the 43mm retro-cushion shaped case with a stunning green dial ($350) – or the 44.5mm racy style of the Jimmy Johnson special edition ($450), you can feel free to swim as your chronograph with 24 hour (day/night) and date function watch is water resistant to a solid 100 meters.
