Would you buy it again if you lost it?
on November 8, 2013
Yes! Unfortunately that's exactly what happend. I owned (and still have) a battery powered Seiko previous to this watch. Seikos keep great time and are extremely reliable and durable. I just got tired of changing the battery every 18 months or so in my old watch. Enter the Kinetic Perpetual watch. No more batteries AND you can leave it sitting around for long periods of time without having to reset everything. I agree with some of the reviews that say a "day of the week" indicator would be better than a "leap year" indicator, and converting from 12 to 24 hour format bacame second nature in the military. However, all things considered this is an excellent watch, especially considering the price. You get a lot of useful functionality and it's a great looking watch too. I received numerous compliments on its appearance. The only drawback is the weight. It's a big, heavy watch. If they could make it lighter it would get five stars. BUT, like I said, I bought a replacement which is something I very rarely do.
