I have 2 solar powered watches in my collection and they currently lie on top of a set of drawers in the bedroom . I decided I wanted some kind of storage for them but obviously one that lets the natural light in .

Bought this wooden storage box for £8.99 from ebay

Only problem is that it has space for 3 solar watches and I own 2 .... Guess I need to buy a third  lol!

Smart looking box & looks to be a good buy. Watch box for solars 3377044411

I always thought solar power watches needed to be in direct sunlight rather than just natural day light so I have learnt something new. Very Happy

You have got me thinking now maybe they do need to be in direct sun light , I will have a search on the internet for answers .

any light will do as long as its constant, putting it in direct sunshine risks internal heat damage, al ong as it gets daylight for a couple of hours a day it will be fine
