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.
