    mine ny0040 is also spot on and I wont sell it (unless I really really have to) even for a similar watch like this ecodrive, accurate autos are very hard to come by...

    Just an offtopic, as someone showed a Seiko Solar and I'm feeling too lazy to do a proper search... how does Seiko's Solar watches compare to Ecodrives when it comes to light-spectrum charging, "power reserve" and battery longevity? When I was considering moving to quartz I though about their kinetics but they sounded like a serious PITA. They don't have a lot of solar options, so I'm thinking not quite so refined as Citizen at this point?

    I've owned three Seiko solar watches and still have two. I haven't owned them long enough to talk about battery longevity though. They offer a 6-month power reserve like the regular Eco-Drive.

    When I received a SSC031 (V175), it wasn't ticking, but after I left it under a full-spectrum LED light for about 15 mins, it started ticking.

    Anyway, no problems with mine so far. The V175 is a pretty accurate movement as well.

    Citizen has a longer track record than Seiko when it comes to solar power, so IMHO I don't think that there is enough data to compare "battery longevity".
    As for "charging" and "power reserve" I can tell you that the both hold up well. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I had to store my collection of Citizen Eco's and Seiko solar's in the dark for about 5 months. All were still working perfectly when I took them out into day light. I charged them up only because they hadn't seen the sun for so long.
    Hope this helps.

    I believe that some Citizen battery can be changed. Last I checked the bay it was about $30 for a battery but even if is changed every 10 years or so, that is still great.

    I had shown my Seiko SNE107 in a comparison shot with my two Citizens. Per Seiko: The SNE107 (V158) is fully charged after 9 hours of sunlight on a sunny/fair day. Seiko says a full charge will last about 10 months.

    And thank you also! How strange is the look of that Seiko bezel on the flesh? It seems pretty weird to me on photos but we take close ups and maybe it looks more conventional in real life?

    ...not that I'm planning gtting another one any time soon... but we know that that means until one stumbles upon one that is on sale or on the sales forum or something like that

    ---EDIT--- Which, btw, just happened after posting this... now, why do I need another solar diver?
