The analog Seiko Core SSC095 chronograph never needs batteries, because it's powered by advanced solar technology that can accept charging from not only solar light, but artificial light as well. It contains energy depletion forewarning and overcharging prevention functions that help keep its manganese titanium-lithium rechargeable battery at peak efficiency. The SSC095 is quartz regulated so it's very accurate. This sharp-looking timepiece features Seiko's Black Ion finish.

Pros: Solar power, metal construction, chronograph functions

Cons: No advanced functions, price
