Seiko Velatura Kinetic Direct Drive

Aug 04, 2008
Seiko self-powered Kinetic watches are really highly demanded these days. The timepieces from the range incorporate a mechanical winder for keeping energy in a battery driving a quartz movement. An offset weight rotates around an axle when the watch's wearer moves his arm. In case of automatic watches, these moves wind a main spring. As for the Seiko Kinetic technology, the arm's moves result in enough power for charging the battery.

In 2007, the Seiko Velatura watch collection was joined by marine-themed watches - a range of eleven models equipped with four different Kinetic quartz movements. Two of the movements are brand-new. The new yacht timer movements offer a one-of-a-kind countdown/stopwatch combination, a really useful feature for yacht racers.

The new watches have incorporated the innovative Seiko Kinetic Direct Drive technology that allows to hand-wind the watches for faster charging. When the watch's owner hand-winds the timepiece, the gauge 'revs' indicating how fast it is wound. When the winding is stopped, the needle moves to indicate how much energy has been accumulated.

The new Seiko Velatura watches feature diamond-shaped hands. Their dials are characterized by great readability. They are protected by sapphire crystals with anti-reflective coatings. The watches are available at the price ranging from 845 to 1,200 dollars.
