Kinetic Direct Drive

Seiko Kinetic Direct Drive is the embodiment of the Seiko's ‘emotional technology’. It offers valuable additions to the ecological and convenience advantages of every Seiko Kinetic watch.

Two winding functions

As in all existing Kinetic calibers, the wearer automatically generates electrical energy by her/his wrist movement. With Kinetic Direct Drive, however, the wearer can also generate energy by winding the crown.

Two indicator functions

Power Reserve Indicator Function

Kinetic Direct Drive shows not only the power held in reserve but also the level of power generation when the wearer hand-winds the crown. The wearer can see and feel, in real time, the direct transfer of power from his or her winding of the crown to the power reserve.

Kinetic Direct Drive creates a direct interaction between wearer and watch!
