In celebration of its 100th anniversary, Seiko has opted to showcase one of its most innovative technologies. Seiko Kinetic is a unique achievement, as it is the only watch in the world to convert kinetic energy into power to drive an electronic movement.
Seiko Kinetic is a motion powered watch that delivers one-second-a-day precision. It is one of Seiko’s ‘clean energy’ technologies, as it never requires a battery change. The Kinetic watch is at least ten times more accurate than any mechanical watch.
In the Sportura Anniversary model, the perpetual energy of motion is combined with a perpetual calendar that is correct until February, 2100. As with every Kinetic calibre, the movement is powered as the wearer wears the watch.
With Kinetic Perpetual, this energy is conserved in a uniquely practical way. If the watch is unworn, it puts itself into sleep mode after 24 hours and, then automatically corrects the time and date, as soon as it is picked up again.
