One among which is the Bering Slim Solar Watch, an environmentally friendly watch that has a power reserve. Capable of running for six to twelve months once fully charged, the watch is comprised of scratch resistant sapphire crystal, brushed stainless steel, and fine mesh or calf leather. Plus, it features a 3D look with its raised indices – making it stylish, elegant, and easy to read.
