Kinetic Movement

Part of Seiko’s Prospex line, each of these watches is equipped with kinetic movement. Released by Seiko in the late 1980s, kinetic movements combine the accuracy of quartz with the winding mechanism of an automatic watch. A fully charged kinetic watch will store up to 6 months of power. To determine the watch’s power reserve, hit the button at the 2 o’clock position—if it skips ahead 30 seconds, it’s fully charged; 15 seconds, it has 3 months of power; and so on.

Note: At checkout, choose between the SUN049P2 (black dial, black leather strap) and the SUN059 (blue dial, blue canvas strap).

Deep Dial With GMT Function

Deep-set, with multiple layers, the dial is equipped with applied hour markers that feature lighthouse-bright lume. Hovering above the hour markers, on the outer edge, are minute markers, while the inner ring features a 24-hour clock that seems to sit beneath everything else. But it’s not just about aesthetics. The GMT function—the skeletonized hand outlined with lume—can be set to the timezone of your choice.

Recent Activity

I think it's the other way around and it became personal for you. Because quite frankly, my reactions are based on your own claims and then the odd advice that comes from it. So let's dissect that for a minute before you can play the "he attacked me personally " card (like where?). Your own words: "Kinetic only makes sense if you will wear it often. " We already established this watch has a max reserve of 6 months. So if you wear it like twice or three times a year it should be fine: even if you wear it less, you give it a few shakes to wake it up and it will move again. "It takes a lot of wear to charge the battery a little ". To put that into perspective: we established that with this movement you can get a 10 day charge if you only wear it for 12 hours and move your arm about 4 times a minute (or 20 times in 5 minutes). That, sir, is by any standard not: "a lot of wear to charge the battery (...) a little". I think it's fair to say that any healthy, average person meets those criteria. And in fact, if you actively engage in any kind of physical exercise, you probably get 10 days of charge in way less time... "if the battery goes too low (from non use), the battery will get damaged and will need to be replaced. " No, the battery doesn't get "damaged" from running "too low" because it doesn't run "too low" as it shuts off to prevent just that from happening. Off course, like all quartz watches, you will eventually have to replace your capacitor/battery. But there are many Seiko kinetics - even from the older series - that run easily for +10 years. "I wear mine primarily on vacation and can't get it charged fully, even after 2 weeks of wear. " That, sir, tells us more about you then that it is a sound source for advice. If you do the math for this Seiko with the 5M85 kinetic movement and you wear it 14 days, 24x7 you should get 6 months easily. So you are basing your advice to others for this watch on what? Apparently on owning a Seiko with another movement and on the fact that you apparently (just doing the math here) don't move around enough in 14 days a year to get your watch charged. So yeah, if you want to cry about "personal attacks" while I'm pointing out every flaw in your arguments and flawed advice - as it is based on your own anecdotal experience based on NOT even owning this particular watch and NOT based on this particular movement coupled with a obviously "less than active" lifestyle - then by all means be my guest. I'm done here...
