What Are Kinetic Watches?

watch repair

What is a kinetic watch and how does it work?
-kinetic energy is the energy of motion. A kinetic watch uses the everyday motion of the wearer to operate the watch engine, also known as the movement. It stores energy that is produced by simple, everyday movements, such as shaking someone’s hand, gesturing, swinging your arms while walking, or turning the steering wheel while driving. The energy is captured when the movements of the person;s arms and hands cause a pendulum to oscillate within the watch that spins a very small pinion which is attached to a relatively large gear, at a very high speed. The Pinion is attached to a miniature electrical generator so as the pinion spins it charges the storage device which is a capacitor or a rechargeable battery. A typical full charge will last between two weeks and six months.

How is a kinetic watch different from an automatic watch?
-A kinetic movement is sometimes referred to as automatic-quartz movement, and kinetic watches combine the best elements of automatic and quartz watches. A kinetic watch has a self-winding movement, just like an automatic, but it uses a quartz timekeeping mechanism. The capacitor transfers energy to a quartz crystal, which vibrates at a high frequency to run the gears at a consistent rate. Automatic movement is a form of mechanical movement, so it uses a hair-spring and a balance wheel to keep time.

The first thing you should know about leather watch bands, is excessive humid may cause mildewing on leather. Excessive dryness, on the other hand, may cause cracking. This happens when the leather losses its natural lubricant. There is no use buying water-resistant leather-because these most likely will not work as well. I is impossible to cover all the pores on the leather. Leather, like your skin, needs to breath.

Here are some general leather watch strap care tips:

1. Protect your leather watch strap from direct and even indirect sunlight. Some leathers, such as full and semi-aniline, will fade over time.

2. Keep the leather free from dust by dusting with a cloth.

3. Clean your leather with leather cleaner, minimally, this needs to be done about four times a year. However, don’t rub it with the leather cleaner! sponge gently until all grime and stains are absorbed.

4. Avoid washing hands with the leather strap watch on your wrist. Droplets of water may wear out your strap faster.

How to Tell if You Have a Quality Watch

watch repair

The classic definition of a “good” watch generally refers to a watch with mechanical movement. Most Automatic/mechanical watches use an intricate system of gears and springs that rely on mechanical energy to operate. Because of their craftsmanship, these watches are given higher regard because they capture the fine art of watch-making. They command a higher premium as a result, but automatic watches, by their very nature, are often inaccurate (when there is no movement, such as your arm swinging), mechanical watches stop and require winding. In fact, a quartz watch has a simpler and less expensive movement, which uses a battery that sends electrical currents to a small quartz crystal to ensure timing accuracy and is much more accurate than a mechanical watch, and is sold at a lower cost.

Quartz Watches are cheaper because they are not perceived as “sophisticated” by connoisseurs. But who cares? at least they are reliable and accurate. If You are set on a watch with a mechanical movement, know that most popular mechanical watches are manufactured nowadays use automatic movements, which means they wind themselves thanks to the movement of the wearer.

Without getting too technical, I recommend you check out the offerings of Swiss watchmakers for a “good” watch. They are made with the highest standards in the world. With the consolidation that is occurring in the industry, most well-known brands are owned by a small group of companies. This means you can get the same level of craftsmanship of a higher priced watch by buying its lower priced cousin in the company product line.

For example, if you can’t afford a Movado, you can buy its less expensive counterpart by Esquire (it is made by the same company, but since Movado is the more prestigious brand, it carries a premium price). In fact, I would say that a $250 Esquire offers the quality of a watch priced at $1,000 or more. Similarly, You can purchase a Tissot which is a trademark of the Swatch Group, at a much lower price than an Omega which is also a Swatch Group brand, without compromising much quality.
