Seiko Arctura Men's Kinetic Steel Watch
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.
