Product Description

Harnessing the power you generate with each movement, this Seiko Men's Kinetic Silver-Tone Watch #SKA347 features a dramatic black dial face, which is encased by a hardlex dial window. Silver-tone hour and minute indexes bring a stylish contrast, and an additional ring of Arabic numerals ensures an at-a-glance readability. A handy date calendar rests at the four o'clock position, and the stationary, stainless steel bezel is embellished with additional time-telling hour indexes. Other details include the silver-tone, stainless steel band that comes equipped with a fold-over-clasp-with-push-button closure, and a 40-millimeter stainless steel case. Powered by Japanese kinetic movement, this watch is water resistant up to 330 feet.

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.

    This is my first Seiko. I have a Citizen Eco-Drive dress watch but without illimunated hands/markers, a leather band, and no backlight. Also, as I travel frequently, the stem for it is very difficult to pull out which is a royal pain when switching time zones. My previous stainless "casual" watch just croaked. I had the battery changed years ago and opening the case apparently introduced enough moisture into the interior so that it has corroded over the past 5 years. So, wanted a stainless casual watch, comfy enough for daily wear, tough enough to wear all the time, minimal fluff (I just need to know what time it is) and self powering so that I don't have to worry about the above issue. This fits the bill very nicely and looks good enough that I can wear it to work as well. So far (1 week) very accurate and that's about all I ask from a watch. The stem appears to be big enough that I can change time zones as need too which is a bonus.

    3 month update. Not much different from above. It's been accurate, dependable and I've gotten several compliments on it. Very heavy stainless steel body & band which I like - definitely a "manly" watch. I have quit thinking about it and started to rely on it being utterly accurate - which is very high praise indeed. The date window could be a little easier for 43 year old eyes to see at a glance, but that's me getting older more than the watch. Otherwise, it has been everything I expected. As above, my first Seiko, definitely not my last if it continues like this.

    9 month update. See above. I have bifocals now so seeing the date is no longer an issue. I wear it daily, it keeps perfect time and I don't even think about it. Aboslutely 100% reliable to date. HIGHLY recommended.

    Verified Purchase
    I've owned Seko watches for more than 30 years, and have always marveled at how tough and accurate they are. When I was ready to buy a new Seiko, only because I wanted a little change in wrist jewelry, I concluded that this kinetic watch was among the most attractive by my standards of conservative elegance.

    For example, the stainless steel markings on the watch face are highly refelective and they sometimes flash briefly as they catch the light - which adds just the right amount of pizazz. The clasp on the wrist band is a new post type (to me); it gives a very nice, positive latching action.

    Last but not least, I love the "kinetic" winding - which means that I'll never have to buy a battery for this watch. I walk enough, and work out at the gym enough, so that within a few days the watch became fully charged, which according to the manufacturer, means that it had reserve power enough to last 6 months without any further motion. Goodbye watch batteries.

    In summary - I love it. I would have rated it 5 stars if it displayed the day of the week as well as the day of the month.

    I was looking for a nice, professional, and dependable watch. I am not enamored with extra bells and whistles. I want my watches to tell me the accurate time and date without the necessity of a battery or constant movement needed with automatics. I don't need a watch to tell me the month, whether its day or night, military time, nor the time of another time zone. Keep it simple and precise.

    This watch has a very sleek design, has a good sized face without being clunky, and possesses the qualities of every Seiko Kinetic watch. I do not have to remove it to type or dictate. This will be the watch I will wear daily for the next several years.

    I've always liked nice watches.I do not like blingy watches, gold or 2 tone watches.

    I'm coming from an Omega Seamaster Pro 2254.50 (sold already) which has incredible readability in any light conditions (perfect for aging eyes) but with the only drawback of a high priced maintenance premium.

    I've been looking for a watch that could replace it and being honest, I looked for:

    1) Tissot
    2) Seiko
    3) Citizen

    I went to the mall, looking for official dealers per each one of the manufacturers websites and, before a lot of research, I knew that:

    1) Tissot won't honor a warranty for a watch bought on the Internet.
    2) Seiko won't honor a warranty for a watch bought on the Internet, unless its clearly stated that the seller is an authorized Seiko reseller.
    3) Citizen will honor a purchase from Amazon, being them an authorized reseller.

    So, I went to the mall looking for 3 specific watches:

    1)Tissot PRC200 Mens Watch T014.410.11.057.00

    2) Citizen Men's Eco-Drive Calibre 8700 Watch #BL8000-54A

    3) Seiko Men's Kinetic Silver-Tone Watch #SKA347

    The Tissot has a very good finish and specs. (sapphire crystal and 200 M water resistance for example)
    The things I didn't like about it was that the bracelet was very heavy and there are red hour markings in the inner bezel. The good thing also is a 2 year International warranty) The bad thing: just another quartz watch with no innovations at all.

    Then I looked at the Citizen. Everything looked awesome on that watch except the white dial and roman numerals looks like they are made of plastic, not metal, very artificial looking. The Eco Drive feature was a plus but the dial (aside being too busy) was a deal breaker.
