Casio Edifice Tough Solar (EQS500DB-1A1) for $165

Time won’t stand still! The whole analogue versus digital watch thing is just another one of those things the internet fuels and propagates. Truth is, you don’t have to pick a side. You can like both. You can wear both. You can even wear both at the same time. Two wrists and plenty of space between the elbow and the wrist 🙂

Okay silliness aside, if you are looking for a tough-looking solar-powered (I love the idea of not having to change batteries and not having to recharge a watch; it just works!) watch, the new condition Casio Men’s EQS500DB-1A1, part of the Edifice Tough Solar stainless steel series is on sale for $165 with free shipping with a maximum of three per customer at the sale price by Amazon actual. This is not a lightning deal, so expiration time unknown.

It has three dials and apparently can survive cloudly winters – the specs say that a full charge can keep it powered for five months without additional exposure to light. It averages 4 out of 5 based on 260+ customer reviews.

I’ve been using a solar-powered entry-level watch for a few years now. I just wear it when I’m outside and it has never run out of power. I haven’t visited the cornerstore watch guy for a new battery since then!

But I have also been “cheating” on it with a Fossil Q smartwatch 🙂
