Trans Continents Trans Solar E110

It was really sunny when I got up this morning, so I decided  it's time for another solar watch. Today's model also follows on from yesterday's watch as it is from another brand made by Citizen.

The watch is a model from the Citizen Trans Continents line which is a collaboration between Citizen and the Japanese Trans Continents fashion brand. More details of the Trans Continents brand can be found in my post from the 10th November 2014. As this model is a solar watch, it is also part of the Trans Solar line.

This model is a 3 hand dial design with a date window at the 3 o'clock position. The solar panel is hidden in the face which has no numbers, just round hour markers (except for 12 which has a T shape) with minute markers around the edge. The case is round and made of stainless steel (with 20 bar water resistance) with a rotating bezel, and there is a thick textured rubbery strap. The back is screw-on and shows the brand name and logo, as well as the usual Citizen details.

This particular variation has a full model number of E110-H26949. The serial number suggests a 1997 or 2007 date. I've found this exact model in a Japanese blog from 2007, but the translation suggests they wrote it was am early model (which maybe implies 97...)
