Product Description

Kinetic: A powerhouse in technological innovation

Like mechanical and quartz, Kinetic is a platform. Over the past 20 years, SEIKO has created on this platform a suite of Kinetic movements, each bringing unique features to the consumer.

It was at the 1986 Basel Fair that SEIKO unveiled its first Kinetic prototype. Introduced under the trial name of 'AGM', it was the first watch in the world to convert kinetic movement into electrical energy. It was the first step in a development that, 20 years later, has made Kinetic synonymous with environmental friendliness, high performance and long-lasting convenience to a generation of users worldwide. From the launch in 1988 of the first commercially available watch (then under the new name AGS) until today, over eight million Kinetic watches have been sold (as of 2007).

In 1998, Kinetic Auto Relay was released, extending the 'at-rest' operating period of the watch to a remarkable 4 years. 1999 saw the launch of the Ultimate Kinetic Chronograph, a masterpiece which fused the very best of SEIKO's mechanical and electronic watch making skills, and in 2003 another Kinetic Chronograph was launched. At Baselworld 2005, the Kinetic Perpetual made its first appearance, combining Kinetic convenience and longevity with a perpetual calendar, correct to the year 2100. In 2007, SEIKO's emotional technology Kinetic Direct Drive is introduced.

    If you're used to wearing stainless watches, it will probably be fine for you.

    I purchased this watch to replace a Bulova that I prized but that was unfortunately pinched by some unsavory type. I came across this watch while shopping for a replacement. It actually went a little higher than my original price range, but I'm very pleased with the end result. OIverall, I was looking for a metal case and band, clean face (ruling out chronographs), and just enough features to get me to work on time (date and time, solamente).

    Comments by feature:

    1. Casing: I use this watch for daily wear, and while I am not necessarily doing hard labor, it does take a bit of a beating. As a result, the watch casing has picked up a few small scratches in the past four months, but the SS has otherwise held up. Somewhat pointless numbers engraved on the bezel. I could have done without them for a cleaner design.

    2. Crystal: The crystal has held up even better, with no scratches at all; I recommend a sapphire crystal if this is important to you.

    3. Band: SS and comfortable. Button release on clasp.

    4. Movement: Japanese - some consider Japanese movements to be slightly inferior to Swiss movements, but Seiko has a good reputation for solid craftsmanship, and my time is always accurate.

    5. Data: Hour, minute, second hands and numerical date. I wish the watch had a perpetual calendar - I dislike having to remember to change the date at the end of months with <31 days.

    6. Face: Clean, no numbers, luminescent hands and hour markings.

    7. Power: This is what hooked me and drove me above my price point - kinetic power. However, this isn't the old type of mechanism, where the movement of the weight wound a spring. Instead, movement of the weight charges a battery, which then powers the watch.

    This replaces a Fossil Blue watch that I wore for over 10 years. It still works but was showing its age. The new Seiko is gorgeous! It seems well made and is heavier than my last watch. I considered getting a titanium watch instead of stainless steel since titanium is a lot lighter but I also found out it scratches up easier and scratch resistance is more important to me. Speaking of scratch resistance the sapphire crystal is also much more scratch resistant than the typical glass crystal. Also it is flush with the watch case for protection. The face is described as white but is really a very light metallic champagne color. Close to white but not quite. I like the fact that the polished part of the wristband is slightly recessed as that will protect it some from scratches, which was a problem with my last watch. The push button clasp looks nothing like the hidden style amazon shows, but it is nice. I have only had this watch for a day so cannot review on long term reliability but it works great so far and I researched and found that the kinetic watches overall are reliable. You can hear the kinetic mechanism rolling around inside when you move the watch. It is not loud by any means but is noticible in a quiet environment. It is no louder than the rattling noise made by many metal watch bracelets anyway. Some people who reviewed other kinetic watches complained about the sound but I think it might serve as a conversation starter. :) The button at two o'clock is a power reserve indicator which moves the second hand ahead between 5 and 30 seconds. The further the more charge it has. When I got the watch the second hand was moving in 2 second intervals which indicates less than 24 hours of reserve power are left. Very cool! And of course these features don't affect the accuracy. I can't think of anything to complain about with this watch. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

    Verified Purchase
    First, I want to say that I'm not a connoisseur of watches (I don't have a Rolex or any other famous brands) and I don't (until now) wear a watch everyday. I buy A LOT off Amazon (maybe too much) but this is my 1st review because I feel so strongly about this purchase.

    First, the Seiko Arctura Kinetic Watch #SKA201 is one nice looking time piece. I've worn it only two days and have received several compliments about its look and style. This watch can be worn everyday or at a formal event. If I had to pick one word to describe it, it would be "elegant".

    Second, the quality and workmanship of this watch is excellent. The head unit/face (I'm guessing that's what it's called) and the band is very precisely crafted with quality materials. The whole watch size looks perfect with my average size arm and wrist - I'm not a big fan of the bigger size watches w/ large face.

    NOTE: I do want to make one small note. Adjusting the watch band links is not "easy". I brought it to a watch jeweler and it took him almost 30 minutes to adjust the links to fit perfectly for my wrist. He used specialized watch equipment and he had a difficult time so I can only imagine the frustration an novice like me would've had if I tried to tackle it myself. fyi..The pins connecting the links in the bands are of different dimensions. But the jeweler and I "bonded" during this time so he was very generous and didn't charge me for the work. I'm not sure if everyone will be lucky like me to find such a nice jeweler so budget $10 to $20 for adjusting the bands especially if you have an average to small wrist.

    I mentioned in the begin of this review that I don't wear a watch everyday. Well, that has all changed.
