Product Description

This Men’s watch with Black Ion Finish and gleaming gold tone highlights makes for rich contrast in this Seiko watch. By the simple movement of your wrist, the rechargable battery charges itself. Once fully charged, it captures and stores energy up to six months. Kinetic – the most advanced electronic watch technology. Features in a black dial accented by the gold hands and markers and the power reserve indicator. 100 meters water resistant.

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.

    I have received many compliments on how nice the watch looks.
    J. Reilly
    Both the case and band are coated with a TiCN material that looks like polished black ceramic, absolutely stunning in contrast with the gold bezel.

    I thought this watch looked good in the online photos, but when you open the box it is absolutely beautiful! I have had a gold tone men's Seiko watch with a black face for at least fifteen years, but the process of having to replace batteries every year had resulted in some loss of integrity to the case seal and I decided it was time to replace it. This one appealed to me because of the kinetic feature, as well as appearance and also presently available at a very good price (I paid $216). The clear case back allows you to see the pendulum that spins to recharge the kinetic power cell, and that looks pretty cool! Both the case and band are coated with a TiCN material that looks like polished black ceramic, absolutely stunning in contrast with the gold bezel. I just hope it lasts as long as my previous Seiko...

    My wife and kids got this for me as a birthday present. I haven't worn a dress watch much in years. I got used to using a Timex Ironman for running and the damned things are so cheap, accurate, rugged, and functional I just stopped using anything else. I have a Casio Pathfinder with altimeter, temp, and compass but that thing is so huge I wonder what the hell I was thinking when I bought it. And I will admit there are times when a watch with a plastic band and case are not the best choice. I also have an ultra thin Seiko rectangular dress watch with a leather band from the mid-eighties that's still working like new. So, when I mentioned a dress watch, my wife thought Seiko first. I bought her a Seiko Black Ion finish watch at Christmas to go with a set of black pearl earrings and necklace. So she bought me this watch to match six months later. I think the Seiko Kinetic is very cool. You get the accuracy and toughness of a quartz movement (which Seiko does very well) combined with a "self winding" feature without the complex mechanical components of swiss watches. And the Seiko system can store enough energy for six months of operation in its lithium cell. Try that with a Rolex.

    The watch came out of the box with the minimum 1-7 day charge on the indicator. After two days, it reached the 1 month charge level. After about a week, it still hasn't reached the top level 4-6 month charge. Not bad. About what I expected. As for the finish, I love the black n gold design. It's a bit different from your run of the mill stainless or gold design. I did a little research on the Titanium Carbon Nitride finish and discovered that this stuff is what they use to coat high speed cutting tools for extremely hard materials. Titanium Nitride comes produces a metallic "gold" color.

    I've now had the watch about three weeks and it has lost about 1/2 of a second in that time, which is well within the 15 seconds per month mentioned in the warranty.

    The ion plated finish is beautiful. It is dressier than watches I usually wear. I will be removing it before working on the car or digging in the yard.

    The self charging feature works well. Movement during shipping had charged the watch up to a one month reserve, as indicated by the power reserve indicator. It was charged to the full 4 to 6 month reserve after about two days on my wrist.

    My only disappointment is the performance of the LumiBrite glow-in-the-dark hands and markers. They shine brightly immediately after exposure to bright light but grow very dim after several hours in the dark. If readability in the dark is a priority for you, a watch with tritium hands and markers is a much better choice.

    1. In my opinion the watches looks very attractive on the arm.
    2. It's stainless case and band covered by something durable (after 3 months there aren't any scratches or marks).
    3. Not lightweight. First week (after my previous titanium watches) I felt some weight on arm, but now it's ok. I don't feel it.

    All above are good points, but ...

    Today I've found out that the trotting second-hand is broken and disconnected from the pivot.
    And it's not my fault (I didn't swap it; I was careful and accurate with the watches.)
    Production defect? I don't know. But now I have to send it to service for repair.

    I am most pleased with this watch. I purchased the watch 10 months ago and have been wearing it during the day nearly every day. The watch appears just as it does on the image on Amazon. Here are its strengths, which are the reason why I give it a 5-star review: (1) Amazing resistance to scratching and to shock. I am very impressed. I've had many watches, and most of them have lasted about 6 months. My previous watches suffered from broken glass, scratches, or dislodging of the arrows from the dial. I hit my hands and wrists on door frames all the time, and I have hit this watch's glass (some kind of crystal, actually) and case many times. It shows no scratches, and the crystal remains intact. No doubt, the reasons behind this are the durable crystal and the ceramic glaze mentioned in the manufacturer's description. The wristband and the case remain just as shiny and polished as when the watch first arrived. (2) Lasting charge. The watch is kinetic and charges itself from swinging motion, particularly during walking. I am very pleased with how long the battery hold the charge. I used to keep track of it, but lately I don't think about it much. Every time I check the charge (there is a function for this), the charge has been full, despite that I only wear it during the day, so it can't charge itself from body motion while asleep. The charge fell to about 70% once, but this was because I had not been wearing the watch for 2 weeks. It charged itself quickly after that. The manufacturer states that, over time, the capacity of the batter may decline, as do the capacities of all batteries. So far this hasn't happened to my watch. (3) The glow-in-the-dark dots at the hour marks and on the arrows are highly visible in the dark.Read more ›
