Edit: I have now had this watch for a year and I have yet to see any problems! It is still as precise as when I got it and there has been no visible drop in power. Even during a period where I forgot to bring the watch on a trip and therefore did not charge it (by wearing it) for 2 weeks the power indicator still showed the battery as full (6 months charge).
It has received a few scratches on the bezel but that is likely down to me rather than the watch.
I try to not use it in water, but I did swim with it one time (forgot to take it off) and this caused no problem at all!
Great watch which I expect to last many more years!
At the risk of boring everyone, a little background to clarify some of the other remarks.
It's quartz, and runs on electricity. From a battery.
There is a bob weight (just like in mechanical automatics) that powers a trickle charger, continually topping up a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery as you flail your arms around. This was a redesign by Seiko. The original Kinetics used a Flux* Capacitor to store the electricity and this didn't quite hack it, so they moved over to a Lithium Ion cell or retrofitted earlier capacitor jobs.
The current model also has better storage, so if you have charged it up, and test it with the top button, the second hand whizzing around 180 degrees, or 30 seconds, means it is good for 6 months, even if you were to keep perfectly still.
It is said the battery will need replacing in a few years, but one thing Seiko is well known for is making watches that last pretty much for ever. Also, Lithium Ion batteries have powered my digital cameras for years and never shown any sign of fading or failing, so I'm not going to worry about that for a good few years yet.
A very impressive watch indeed. I liked it so much I treated myself to a similar mechanical "5" with a light face ( an SNK789K ) to match it. Again £60 or so is bargain of the century money for a thoroughly sound old school, properly full of cogs and springs, watch (with a transparent back so that your inner nerd can see it all working...)
*OK, not really...
Eventually I gave up and sought to return it. At first KG Homewares would not accept it and stated that I had to take it up with the manufacturer. I pointed out that the liability was theirs. When they did agree they told me to send it by ordinary post but they would not accept the liability if it was lost or damaged. They then agreed that I should send it Special Delivery.
The watch was eventually returned to me after a series of chasing emails but no refund of the £6+ postal charges has been made. Repeated emails to KG Homewares have elicited nothing useful and they have now resorted to not answering them at all.
I, personally, will avoid buying from this company again, happy in the knowledge that the Internet gives all of us the opportunity to be selective about who we trade with.

Good looking watch. It does what it is supposed to, like telling the time and without all the unneccassary dials, buttons present on so many modern watches. Read morePublished on 27 May 2013 by H. White
