Hello everyone! In this article I will tell you about three high-quality Seiko watches with a unique autoquartz movement.

The perpetual motion machine has always worried the minds of inventors. And even more so in watchmaking! With the creation of self-winding mechanical watches, the problem was practically solved, but the watch could lie idle for only a couple of days.

That all changed when, in 1999, Seiko created a quartz movement with a kinetic generator and energy conservation. The principle of the technology is simple. When wearing the watch, the battery is charged from the generator, which receives mechanical energy from the movement of the hand during the day. The system was named Seiko Kinetic.

But the energy saving mode allows the watch to work up to 4 years without wearing it. Since the main energy in the watch is taken by analog hands, it was decided to stop them completely after 3 days, if the watch is motionless. Time continues to pass only in the electronic "brain" of the clock. After you take the watch, the hands "magically" fall into the right place, thanks to the signal from the electronic counter inside the watch.

It is about such models that we will talk today. Hope you like what I have chosen.
