Actually I charged it for 4 hours at home before I left using an LED light then 3 hours using the light from my phone and then 4 hours when arrived in Alaska using an LED book light. I am curious about that hybrid though.Hope you have enough daylight hours to keep charged.. Citizen did bring out a hybrid eco/kinetic for use in places near the Artic circle..
I've got all the proper cold weather gear. That's a nice one! Which model is that?Congrats on your new watch. I have this model and I love it. Keeps excellent time being quartz eco-drive.
Good luck in AK. I spent a year in Greenland (150 miles inside arctic circle) many, many years ago. Be sure to take your long-johns.
Now that is pretty bad ass!I just finished reading "Cold", by polar explorer Ranulph Fiennes. Interesting read. Accurate time was very important in 24 hour days and nights. He only wore autos as any battery operated watch failed at that sort of temperature. Autos with special low temp lubricants were the go, he wore I Rolex I believe, specially prepared for his expeditions.
It hasn't gotten that cold yet. I least I can take cabs to and from work. I'm just right around the corner, walking distance, from the grocery.I had near-exact that watch for a while. Bought right here from Tiger.
Flipped it and broke even. Nice watch, wasn't crazy about the wrist balance.
-60 deg ? I don't care if that F or C, too dang cold for me !!!
