I have a GW-002e which I thought I had lost after a house move, but it has reappeared and I am thankful. I really like it a lot. I collect other brands, but this one really sticks with me.
My friend at work told me his G-Shock was still going on the same battery, and reckoned it must be nearly 20 years. I couldn't believe it, but I am sure he is not kidding.
I thought how long the rechargeable cell in a watch like mine would last. In my friend's case he can replace the battery, but I don't know with the solar type.
It the rechargeable cell is time limited, is it worth buying a spare now. I ask this because I am under the impression that rechargeable cells only have a finite numbers of charge cycles.
