|Gem Nation -- Glossary of Diamond, Jewelry and Watch Terminology|
Specifically refers to the Seiko line of Kinetic watches. This innovative technology has a quartz movement that does not require a battery. Movement of the wearer's wrist charges a very efficient capacitor which powers the quartz movement. Once the capacitor is fully charged, mens models will store energy for 7-14 days without being worn. Ladies models store energy for 3-7 days. Of course, if the watch is worn every day the capacitor is continually recharged. The watch alerts the wearer to a low capacitor charge when the seconds hand starts to move in two second intervals.
