The Solar Barrel watch by Rip Curl is made from a 316L stainless steel case and band. This is the highest grade of stainless steel for water resistance, strength and non-corrosion in a marine environment. This watch features a screw down case back with 4 seals, jeweled movement, and is water resistant up to 200m. Did we mention it is solar powered, so there are no batteries required?

Comment: New Gen RipCurl watches not as good as earlier models. This was a replacement for a lost RipCurl ATS tidemaster purchased in 2004. The solar barrel was the closest thing to that watch since the new ATS tidemaster model now has digital display for tides and moon phases, analog dials much more practical for that watch since the digital display more prone to break down. The strap seems light and a little flimsy on the solar barrel and fits snug on wrist. I'm an average sized guy 6'2" about 215 lbs and no extra links provided by RipCurl to expand strap. Bezel is flimsy as well with plastic underside. Serves the purpose but would not purchase another RipCurl watch. Not worth $300 based on craftmanship, very disappointed with RipCurl cutting corners, they used to make a solid watch.
