Sol Watch Embraces Its Solar Cell As A Design Element

Solar powered watches aren’t a new concept, but these days the solar cells are integrated into the faces so you wouldn’t know they were solar powered just by looking at them. That’s not the case with this Sol Watch available from the MoMA Store though. It’s got a tiny solar cell placed front and center below the watch’s inverted LCD display, extending the battery life by an additional 50%. The band and case are made of polyurethane making them water-resistant, and while I like the design, $100 is a tough sell for such basic functionality. I better just order two.
