I gave up on Seiko Kinetics and gave mine away (not this model). The worst of both worlds in my opinion. A pointless idea Seiko should have dropped years ago. Could never get mine charged up past 'about to die', even if I shook it for literally hours on end. Kinetics won't' charge up on watch winders, either. Might be okay of you wear the same watch every day nonstop, but I'd avoid kinetics for occasional wear. Just my ten cents worth.

You need an "swinging" winder like an Orbita or Rapport London for a kinetic (A bit expensive, but worth it). Or buy the rotor cup assembly (includes the watch pillow) from Orbita ($39) and use an Arduino + stepper motor to make your own.

Ugh...like a need another arduino project.
"Inspired by military-issue watches of the 19th century, Seiko’s Kinetic Field Watch features a simple yet utilitarian dial typical of its forebears"

Proof-read your copy please! Styled after 20th century military issue. Teddy Roosevelt didn't charge San Juan Hill wearing a wrist-watch like this. LOL! There were no wristwatches available to Generals Grant or Lee.

I bought two of these for my kids, wanting them to have analogue [edit: and waterproof so they needn't be taken off and lost] watches and not wanting to buy essentially disposable digital watches.
These were really bad.
One never kept time from the beginning, the other broke after a few months.
I've had a Seiko Kinetic for about 15 years that I love, so don't think I'm biased against these. The Field Watches just are, in my specific experience, terrible.
Sorry, but this is far to pricey. You can buy this watch for $120AUD online. That's about $80USD ... just saying.

Where exactly can you find it for $120 AUD, care to help me out?

Can you please send a link for the $80USD priced watch? Thank you!
Does the second hand sweep or tick?

Tick

It ticks once per second. Bulova makes a military style watch with a sweeping second hand, ticks 16x per second I believe.
For those considering this drop--there is no warranty information listed in the description, which means there is no warranty (either manufacturers or Massdrop).

Sketchy! I got in on the Seiko Flieger SNK Watch drop and had it RMA'ed within 3 weeks of use. Luckily it was fully warrantied. Been loving that watch and was considering this drop as well until I realized it might not be warrantied. I wonder if Massdrop could chime in on this.

Thanks for bringing that up!

I am saddened--I don't trust MD anymore. I recently received a dead on arrival item, MD said "too bad, no warranty, we will issue a refund when you send item back." This was after waiting for the item for 3 weeks. Not a good bargain in my opinion.
Does this ship to Australia?

Yes. But there are far cheaper options for this watch in aud. Just letting you know.
