Great watch - but information on case size is wrong,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seiko Men's SNN079P2 Cloth Strap Watch (Watch)
I received the watch from Amazon, and it is a very good-looking chronograph. The strap is comfortable and looks great. The only reason I wouldn't give it 5 stars is that the case size appears to be incorrect twice on the information page for the watch. At the top it says 42mm. Down in the "Watch Information" section it lists the case size as 40mm. I think both of those are incorrect. The watch was smaller than I expected when I opened the packaging, so I compared it to my 42mm Hamilton - it is quite a bit smaller. Then I measured it and while I am not 100% sure of the correct way to measure a watch case diameter without a caliper I would say it is most definitely a 38mm watch (at least the one that was sent to me is). Great watch - but not nearly as big as I expected. I am returning it in favor of something bigger.

So you rated the watch lower than you think it deserves because of the description?

Does this watch run on a battery or on kinetic energy? I know it is not a solar watch but couldn't find info on the source of energy. Any clarification will be helpful. Thank you.

Jorge Becerra says:
You can find this information in "movement", it says: "The means by which a watch keeps time, and often includes the power source. For example, a watch with mechanical movement uses a spinning balance wheel powered by a tightly wound spring. A watch with quartz movement measures the vibrations in a piece of quartz and is often powered by a battery". This watch is quartz, so, it's most likely powered by batteries.
