    Do you sun your watches....?

    OK, I confess. I sun my solar watches at every available opportunity. I can rationalise and explain that living in the UK sunshine is hard to come buy, but I think I will be no different living in sunny Singapore.
    Although I am fully aware that a solar G will hold its charge and has power saving feature and so on, I have never been able to treat them like ordinary quartz watches and keep them in drawers (and darkness). That does spoilt the fun a bit..... but I have a suspicion that I am not alone.

    Re: Do you sun your watches....?

    i actually put them in a shoe box when i am not wearing them so that they go to "sleep"

    i only charge them when i wear them

    and when its sunny outside, there's a small part of me that feel guilty not wear my solar watches out ...

    I watch the reserve and when it gets low (due to long rotation turnover) then I take them & place them in the sun!! I have all my solars in the same box so I just move it into the sun light!

    You guys seem to have a much healthier approach to Tough Solar!

    My solar watches have only ever seen the sun when I've been wearing them. The rest of the time they're asleep.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
