A Solar Watch is a watch that moves by converting light energy into electronic energy. Light energy received by a solar cell (solar cell unit under the dial) is converted into electronic energy. The energy is stored in the rechargeable battery and is used to move the watch.
These watches usually have a capacitor inside, which is not your typical battery. This one can be recharged and can last for 10 years. Do not try to replace a capacitor with a regular watch battery as that can damage the watch.

About mechanical and automatic watches
A mechanical watch is a watch that uses a clockwork mechanism to measure the passage of time, as opposed to quartz watches which function electronically, with the help of a small battery.
A mechanical watch is driven by a mainspring which must be hand-wound periodically. Its force is transmitted through a series of gears to power balance, a weighted wheel that oscillates back and forth at a constant rate. A device called an escapement releases the watch's wheels to move forward a small amount with each swing of the balance wheel, moving the watch's hands forward at a constant rate.
An automatic watch has a self-winding movement that is powered by the motions of the wearer during use. This means, while it is classed as a mechanical watch, it does not require manual winding. The majority of mechanical watches produced today have automatic movements.
