Seiko kinetic watches
Seiko is one of the most recognized and innovative watch manufacturers in the world. In 1998, the company introduced the Seiko Kinetic watch that showed the technological potential of the world-renowned corporation. Kinetic is a product of advanced watch-making technology. What sets it apart from other watches is the fact that it is powered by movement and not by winding or batteries nor by light. This makes the mechanism of the watch unique. This is the reason why this watch is popular not only to watch enthusiasts but also to those who can appreciate the intelligent application of modern technology. And because it is powered by a renewable source, Seiko Kinetic is considered as one of the most environmental watches in the market today.
How it works
Seiko Kinetic watches use kinetic energy or the energy that is produced by movement. People move all the time and thus they constantly produce energy. This means that every time you wear this watch, you charge it with kinetic energy. The kinetic energy stored in the capacitor present in the watch and is converted into electrical energy which is then used to power the motor inside the watch. The capacitor serves as a form of rechargeable battery. So unlike solar-powered watches, Kinetic watches work even in total darkness. As long as your wrist are moving, energy is being harness by Seiko Kinetic.
Since it was launched almost 20 years ago, the Kinetic line has been the best-selling line among all Seiko watch models. The main reason why the Kinetic became an instant hit among consumers is due to the convenience it provides. Since it does not use batteries, Kinetic watches are virtually maintenance-free. The fact that you won’t have to buy batteries ever will save you money. And because Kinetic watches do not have batteries that need replacing, the watch is vacuum sealed. This means that there is no danger of dust getting inside to affect the mechanism of the watch.
