    how do you store your tough solar watches?

    Hi I've been slowly building up my solar powered watch collection (just ordered a Protrek PRG-500 and very excited!) and was wondering what is the best way to store them when not in use? As I understand from Casio instruction manuals it is not good to keep them in darkness as it degrades the solar battery. But I'm not too keen on keeping my watches on the top of my dresser either or out in the open for that matter (call it paranoia).

    So I was wondering if you guys had any ideas? Thanks!

    I have attached them all on a foam isolation pipe, sitting on a windows sill, facing south.

    Mine resides in a glass top watch case in good view of a window.

    Only atomic clocks tell you what time it is - all others try to do so.

    Mine do sit in a dark box. They go into 'sleep' mode and come out of the box on 'High' - assuming that is the way they went in.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I put all my G-Shock in their own boxes. Never worried about the battery will run down. I think that's the purpose of using tough solar.

    I have a watch box that holds about a dozen watches. The place I keep it is kind of dark, but a couple times a month, I put the whole box in a south facing window to get some sun.

    IMO it doesn't matter how you store your G-shocks, but the rechargeable battery might need a bit of care, the best way to store a G-shock with a rechargeable battery is to fully charge the battery from time to time before it reaches the zero.
