    Is it solar or does it take batteries ?(what kind)?

    The description at Hammacher Schlemmer didn’t specify what type of batteries it uses.

    I like timepieces. Does it have a crystal guard that opens? It don’t look like it to me.

    Wolfman2200, I haven’t actually seen one of these, so I can’t say for sure, but I don’t think it opens up.
