What is kinetic movement and how does it work in watches?

WSKG00686_lgDid you know that Seiko was the first watch company to introduce the Kinetic mechanism in watches? They pioneered the technique which unveiled at the Baselworld 1986 trade show under the trial name “AGM” or Automatic Generating System.

The first Kinetic watch was released in Germany in January 1988 and April of the same year in Japan (under the name Auto-Quartz). The watches had an average monthly rate of ±15 sec and provided 75 hours of continuous operation when fully powered.

But what is kinetic movement and how does it work? – Basically what kinetic movement means is that it functions without a battery; powers Kinetically with the movement of your arm.

It has a weight that spins with the movement of your arm, which in turn, powers the watch.
