Product Description

Futuristically styled and technologically advanced, the kinetic Seiko SNG041 stainless steel men's watch contains its own internal electrical generator--operated by natural wrist movements--making it independent of conventional storage batteries. It also features Seiko's unique Kinetic Auto Relay, which automatically resets the watch to the correct time--even if the watch hasn't been worn for up to 4 years. If the watch senses inactivity for more than three days, it automatically stops the hands to conserve energy, then continues to compute the time internally.

The brushed silver watch case flows seamlessly into the stainless steel bracelet band, which features polished accents at the center. The silver dial background has a mix of silver Arabic numerals and thin stick markers and silver-tone baton hands (with second hand). Other features include a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, date function at 3 o'clock, and water resistance to 30 meters (99 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.

    The watch is very solid, feels quite weighty on the wrist at first though you soon grow used to it. The dial is quite large and show's the time clearly. The luminous hands are quite hard to see in darkness but I find this with all unlit/luminous watches.

    It took a couple of tries to get the date to changeover at midnight instead of at midday but following the good Seiko instructions provided I got it eventually.

    I used a local watch shop to remove links in the chain to fit my wrist properly, it was a quick cheap job.

    If you move the watch quickly left/right you can hear the kinetic device spinning away inside charging the internals, it's nice to be able to leave the watch off for a weekend, then on picking it up it spins around to the correct time, though you do need to manually reset the date.

    Like an other reviewer the "seconds" hand on my watch also doesn't match up exactly with all the minute markers as it ticks around, but this is not noticable unless you are stitting watching it run around.

    Overall a beautiful watch, solid, but not overwhelming on the wrist, never needs a battery and keeps very good time.

    This is my second SEIKO kinetic watch and I wasn't quite impressed with the quality of this model. What bugged me the most was the alignment of the "second" hand matching the outer "seconds" tick marks on the watch's face.

    My other SEIKO kinetic watch was dead on with the "second" hand all through its 360 degree movement. However, this model was off by some millimeters. OK, so maybe that's not much but my quality expectations were high comparing it to my first kinetic watch model.

    I don't know if that was an acceptable tolerance for SEIKO as far as quality was concerned but nonetheless "it burst my bubble."

    Overall though, it's style, ability to set itself for the proper time when it has been dormant and no need for battery, makes this watch a "keeper."

    Overall this was a terrific watch, but there are a few things a buyer should know. It is VERY heavy, I personally like to feel the watch on my wrist, but others may see this as a con. Its also on the larger side, not outrageous, but definetly visible if one has a narrower wrist. Howevr, it looks great, and I did not see any misalignment between the second hand and the tick marks, unlike some of the other reviewers. Overall its a good everyday watch for someone who doesn't mind the weight.

    I'm not much of a collector but after purchasing this watch I learned why people become watch collectors.

    The watch is just beautiful to look at. The numerical digits having different sizes definetly gives it a modern trendy look; the white/silver dial adds to that by giving it a classic look and the manner in which the band blends in with the main piece makes it look futuristic. Definitely a mans watch due to the sheer size and weight. Infact since i'm so impressed by it I am also thinking of picking up another but with a black dial.

    Amazon could have packed the item better because even though there was a plastic air bubble bag in the box, the watch case could still be heard banging aganst the sides.

    This is my second Seiko Kinetic watch. My first one is over 10 years old and still going strong. This baby is awesome. I Love It, Love It, Love It. I LOVE everything about this watch. The Look, The Feel, etc... The sweep second hand is right on the mark. It might feel a little heavy when you first pick it up but you get used it real fast. You hardly know it's on after a few minutes. The only noise I hear comming from the watch is when you have to shake it about 500 times to charge the self winding mechanism when you use it for the very first time. After the initial winding/shaking process it is dead silent. One feature I find really cool is the auto relay function. If you don't wear it for about 4 days it goes into an energy conservation mode and the hands stop moving. The accurate time is kept internally. After the 4 days all you have to do is pick it up and shake it 1 or 2 times and the watch sets itself automatically to the current time. How Cool Is That!!!
