Renowned watchmaker Fossil has a new watch series called Fossil Solar, which is manufactured from materials that support environmental sustainability.
The watch also uses energy converted from sunlight.
In terms of the design, the watch adopts a simple but attractive design. It uses white analogue hand and markings while the retire watch dial comes in black. This creates a perfect contrast that makes it visible under the sun.
The watch’s bezel around the case acts like a solar panel as it houses a solar cell placed underneath which converts the light energy into electrical energy which is then stored in its rechargeable battery. It is available in 36mm and 42mm sizes.
Since it is basically an analogue watch, the battery is durable as a single charge can last for up to four months before you’ll need to charge the watch again. The watch also has a single rotating crown located at the right side.
In addition, the Fossil watch case is built from bio-plastics made from castor oil. It also adopts several straps made from yarn spun from discarded plastic bottles.
Each unit ships with five different straps each having a unique colour. The retail box is also made entirely from cardboard which can be used to store the straps or can be recycled. These watchs will be available from mid-May.
