  • “SmileSolar” is a pet name of the new Calibre 2085. The base of the movement is Cal.2035 which is well known as a most reliable watch movement in the world. The solar cell has been installed at the edge of the dial from 2 to 10 o'clock position, shaped like a smiley face.

  • Q&Q SmileSolar can be charged by exposing watch dial to sunlight or fluorescent lamps and this solar-powered system keeps watches operational up to 3.5 months after a single charge. The watch case is produced by monocoque construction and there is no case back because of no battery changing required and one-piece case construction strengthen water proof quality. It is indeed a maintenance free watch!
