The Mini Solar; same signature look, now in mini!
Over the past year, many of you have expressed interest in a smaller watch that would fit a delicate wrist. We read, listened and took notes, lots of notes. Just the right amount of them to understand what your needs are in order to find the perfect solution. At Solios, when you confide in us, rest assured that we listen with the most attentive ear.
Fast forward on the new watch ideation and design process, this brings us to April 25th, the launch of the Mini Solar, a 29mm diameter watch that fits smaller wrist perfectly.
Why a smaller model?
Once we launched our first model, we quickly realized that many people were faced with an obstacle when it came to shopping for a new watch; most were too large.
Following this realization and after talking to many of you, we wanted to improve the watch buying experience for those with more delicate wrists. That's where we got the idea to work on a model similar to the Solar, but in a smaller size.
By creating this new watch format, we can meet the needs of more people, which in turn allows us to offer a more inclusive product.
What are the differences compared to the Solar model?
The major difference of the Mini Solar is of course the diameter of its dial, which is smaller than that one of the Solar. Indeed, the case of the Mini is 29mm while the Solar is offered in 36mm and 40mm.
Also, although the Mini offers the signature Solios look, the design of the watch has been updated and is slightly more minimalist, mainly due to the small size of the watch. We have also changed the proportion between the dial diameter and the width of the straps, making the overall experience of wearing it much more comfortable for smaller wrists.
Otherwise, just like the Solar, the Mini is using the same solar technology as all our other watches. No need to change batteries anymore; your watch only needs a few moments of exposure to sunlight or artificial light to be recharged.
What are the materials used to make this watch?
You will be delighted to know that the Mini Solar is the first Solios watch made with 100% certified recycled stainless steel. This means that all the metal parts of the watch are made of a recycled material that is infinitely recyclable.
As for the straps, they are always available in two materials, either steel mesh or vegan leather made with silicone, free of PU, PVC, and toxic by-products.
