Seiko SSC081P1 Watch Review | Solar Powered Chronograph


Seiko SSC081P1 Watch Review Summary

My rating: 8.5/10, Good watch, solar powered, lightweight.

Seiko SSC081P1 watch makes an excellent timepiece for those after some classic style but also some robust features. It’s solar powered using any form of light to fuel itself meaning you not longer requires batter changes. The luminous hands and indicators are very bright making them great quality. Has a useful alarm feature as well as a working compass.

My Final Thoughts:

Seiko SSC081P1 watch is a very practical choice with all it’s extra features. For me personally I love the use of the solar powered movement, no longer requiring battery changes when you have a lot of watches is a big plus from me. Overall I like the general design of the watch with the tan leather strap and the black dial, whilst I do tend to prefer minimalist style I do rather like the compass feature.
