That little battery icon suggests rechargeable. Any info besides the pics?
If someone tells you "There's no such thing as a stupid question", have him list a watch for sale on WUS.

The links have the specifications, but they are solar.

These look pretty sweet. Nice alternative to a basic G (they don’t seem to stick around for me)

If those lugs will take a normal strap, I might be in. Of course, the one I like best would be a limited edition. Odd how I’m landing on multi-function quartz as a preferred go-to.

It’s interesting. I like it. BTW, what’s lowercase? I’ve seen this pop up on a few Seiko models now.

The LE Urban Research SBEP009 is my favorite.

Closely followed by the SBEP005.

I'm digging the gold version. This could very well be the hiking/mtb watch I've been waiting for.

I think it's a Japanese fashion/streetwear brand.

I appreciate the fact that there’s still a chapter ring that can be misaligned

Minutes elapsed are shown in the edge of the digital display (8 minutes past 10 in the photo above), so you could use the bezel to time something. Whereas how practical that is when you have a digital chronograph, I don't have an answer to that one.

If the side profile is similar to a Tuna, I might try one on a nato.

From what I've read the minute track does fill up around the entire outer edge. It will be interesting to see the first video to show exactly how all of these functions work, especially for diving.

Damn it Seiko. I didn’t even notice it myself...

He’s right. The bezel is not even useful on this. Why??? Track seconds with a bezel? That’s some backwards fu$&ing pageantry.

Always something....

And I see they managed the shitty X... but it is tolerable. Not too bad when small and digital I guess

The bezel operates like a normal dive watch. It's a minute tracker that fills up around the outer ring, not seconds, so it will function like a normal minute hand.

Embrace the X........Image
