Changing batteries is a pain in the ass, and can even allow water to seep inside and kill your timepiece, so when you’re getting ready to for a day outside, strap on the Nixon Men’s Volta PU Watch. A rechargeable solar mechanism ensures a lifetime of use, and burly stainless case construction stands up to abuse on the reef, the streets, and anywhere in between. Nixon’s patented locking looper and stainless steel buckle keep the durable polyurethane strap tight to guarantee a good fit.

This is one bitchin watch!
I love this watch! It is a bold statement for any guy who wants to roll around in style. I haven't had a problem with it stopping but it is pretty hard to keep the date dial on the correct date (which can be annoying at times). Overall, this is definitely a good buy!
I got the Volta PU in Gunmetal. I've got to say this thing looks better in person. Love the large size, but the best thing about it is the fact that it doesn't need a replaceable battery. This thing will hold a charge for 60days with only 1 hr of sunlight. Unless you put this thing in a closet and turn out the lights there should never be a problem with it keeping time. Gotta love Nixon!
I bought the Nixon Volta Pu and really...
I bought the Nixon Volta Pu and really like the piece. However, it seems to need a solar charge that requires me to reset the time every time I take it off and put it on again for wearing. My Citizen eco drive does not require regular charging like this to maintain the time even when I don't wear it for days. Anybody know if this is normal? I heard a prolonged charge under light may do the trick. Other ideas?
