Neither solar powered or radio controlled.

Radio controlled as in the time is updated daily by radio waves so it always displays the correct time, even when the clocks move for daylight savings or you change time zone.

That's what's great about opinions.

We don't have to agree on them.

Having owned this watch and a couple of Timex watches I'd have to disagree. But then, that's just my opinion.

In real life a perfectly correct, radio controlled watch is no better than a wind up timex.

OK I'll explain it very slowly and carefully , just for you .
What use is a perfectly correct watch if the driver of the bus you want has only a bog standard watch ?
And even if he has an RC one like yours , he is at the mercy of traffic and not likely to arrive on time anyway .
Your RC watch will not make TV or radio programmes start on time .
A taxi will not be made to arrive on time .
In fact , NOTHING will be any better , time wise because you have a radio controlled watch .
It is merely a gadget and like many other gadgets , there is already something doing the job quite adequately .
PS. If you sprogs really want to insult me, you will have to try a lot harder.
Heat. One of the best aspects of RC is the fact it updates the calendar automatically. Solar not sure how good in real world they work, but the concept is great. No batteries to muck about with.

I have a different model that is solar powered & it works well. Just need to ensure it's exposed to light & not hidden under a jumper/shirt cuff/jacket.

The luminosity of the hands & markings though is really disappointing. Glows like a very bright glowing thing initially but fades very quickly to the point of being useless.

How is that tin-foil hat of yours? Must get warm with this weather.

Just because (in your view) the rest of the world will be working on the wrong time it does not degrade the accuracy of a radio controlled unit. This is highly practical, highly accurate and can for example be used as a measured to time the accuracy of your automatic watches because it gives you an exceptionally accurate base.

This is better than "Tick a tack Timex" and your opinion in not correct nor is it fact.

HUKD: Here is a Nissan GTR at half price
Pluun: I will drive my lada, as it does the job adequately. NOTHING will be any better and if have the GTR, I'll get stuck in traffic anyway and wont arrive on time. Its just a gimmick.

Great argument. Sigh...

Edit: I should add Plunn, that you DO have your facts and opinions mixed up. When you say NOTHING will be any better, considering this is solar powered and RC controlled. No battery change, no need to set the time, or change the date EVER.

I see you Pluun.

The office 'expert', ramming your opinions down everyone's throat and badging them as fact.

Quoting your cars 0-60 time, telling everyone which TV they should buy, proclaiming why their DSLR is better than any other.

You're a bore, people put up with you to your face put say what they really think behind your back.

Even now, you've decided that 'better' means only keeps a similar standard of time. If that was the case there would be no place in this world for anything other than your cheap Timex, but in reality there are plenty of more expensive offers which continue to sell. The think is, build quality, functionality, convenience and visual appeal all factor in to the equation of what is better. Further still, what's better for you isn't necessarily better for anyone else.

If all this offends you, you don't have to post anything. Just ignore it and keep your opinions (because that's all they are) to yourself.

Oh dear, Robyn.
You're reading what you'd like me to say again.
When you improve your reading skills, you MIGHT learn to read what is actually written and not what is befuddling your senses, petal.
All I have done, is explain ( well, try to) that a perfectly correct timepiece ( of which I have about 8 ) is no more use than an ordinary one.
So, methinks it is you and your " hard of understanding numpties, oops, sorry, I mean m8s" who are the "packages".
Sadly, I cannot clarify which female "package" I am referring to, as you will no doubt run, crying, to teacher and try to get me a days ban.
As I will be unable to access the internet tomorrow, try to arrange it for Tuesday, so that it will cause me untold grief and sadness.

Oh.
Robyn and your other lady friends, Please note.
You are boring me with your pathetic attempts to insult me, so I have decided to block you all.
