Hi there, do you know of any solar powered dress watch that is classic and simple?
Looking for a gift, budget below USD 300. Thanks!

Seiko makes solar powered watches. Different people have different concepts of what a "simple dress watch" is supposed to be. But, you can find lots of seiko models in the 200-300 range - especially on sale.

That is a real nice looking watch! I have a Seiko from '83 (not solar powered but quartz) and still going strong. You can't go wrong with Seikos.
The newer version of mine (a roman numeral tank) is solar powered and larger (so more in keeping with current styles) and sells for about $110. All depends on your taste what is best for you. Good luck!

Chrono24 is a good place to look for ideas. Many of the watches are used but the selection is huge. Solar watches are categorised separately. Lots by Seiko and Junghans. Junghans is a very serious German watchmaker - well worth considering.

Here's a Chrono24 search for solar watches https://www.chrono24.co.uk/search/index.htm?dosearch=true&gender=1401&maxAgeInDays=0&pageSize=60&priceFrom=40&priceTo=-1&redirectToSearchIndex=true&sortorder=1&styles=1833

Here's Junghans https://www.junghans.de/en.html
