Priced at Rs 9,995, Fossil has launched a sustainable solar watch in the Indian market. It is a limited edition watch with only 1,754 pieces available.
The outer ring of the watch case acts as a solar panel, capturing light and converting it to energy using a solar cell beneath the dial. It then stores the energy in a rechargeable battery that powers the movement of the watch. Once fully charged, the Solar Watch is expected to run for around 4 months before you will need to charge it again.
In addition to opting for a more sustainable, solar-powered movement, the Solar Watch comes equipped with five pull-through straps, which are made with yarn spun from approximately 16 plastic bottles (16oz). That is 16 fewer bottles in a landfill, or an ocean or a national park, and one step closer to a greener future.
