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.
From Humble beginnings, Kintaro Hattoris Vision for Seiko has become reality. A consuming passion for excellence - imprinted in our Corporate DNA passed from generation to generation. Seiko, for 125 years committed to the art and science of time.

I purchased this watch, and it really is stunning and well made, but it was DOA out of the box, the instructions tell you to shake it a few times to get it running, well it took almost a hour before I could get it charged up enough to make it stop doing the "double click" on the second hand, which is a low power indicator. After wearing it for almost 2 weeks, it never got past the first indicator mark for the power reserve, meaning it was only charged with enough reserve for one day to one week.
Unless you plan to wear this watch every single day, or like sitting watching TV while shaking a watch, take a pass on the Kinetic. Get a Citizen Ecc-Drive, just as well made, and absolutley maintainence free.
Finally, I looked for it on Amazon and found it for an outstandingly low price(less than 1/2 the retail store's price). It looks even better in person than on the site. It is a great looking
watch and is also a kinetic watch so you don't need to wind it or replace batteries. I have a collection of Seiko watches and have never had one that failed even after years and years
of use. This is my favorite watch and it is guaranteed by Seiko. (some sites have guarantees from other than Seiko and I would advise staying away from those sites.) The blue dial
is very attractive and the gold in the band is brighter than it seems in the picture. Overall, it is a great looking watch which keeps excellent time!
It runs very precisely. It only gains 20 seconds after one month and it doesn't need battery.
If there is anything not perfect, it is the date. I have to adjust the dial if there are 30 days instead of 31 days in that month.
