Just received it. To keep my Seiko Kinetics fully charge since normal watch winder doesn't work well, more suitable for Automatic watch.

That's interesting, I though kinetic watches charges the capacitor by the same movements that works on normal automatic watches! How does that thing work? I don't see any attachment for the watch?? Take a pic with your watch on it!! :thumbsup:

Congrats on your purchase!

Ok... Seiko Kinetic watches uses kinetic energy (movement) to charge it's rechargeable battery (earlier model uses capacitor). There's at tiny generator in it. You can hear it's movement when you shake the watch.

The Kinetic charger that i bought uses electromagnet induction to charge the watch instead of movement. Induction trough it's charging coil instead of electricity generated by the generator. It take around 3-4 hours yo fully charge the watch. For a day of power, one need around 300 - 400 shake. Just imagine time saves to charge the watch.

I'll snap one when I'll borrow my friend's DC.

As for Rolex, I don't think it will work since Rolex uses spring drive to store the movement energy.

I trust it is only suitable when a watch, albeit Seiko or others (I doubt Rolex has any), that uses kinetic energy (movement) to charge it's rechargeable battery like it does with a Seiko Kinetic watch.

So what happens, if there is a power failure or breakdown and you are away on holiday for several weeks/months? Can it still operate on its own with an alternate power supply stored from earlier generation of condensed power? :-k

Very interesting indeed... :tq:

The device uses DC 9v only. And you don't need it for traveling since Seiko Kinetic battery will last for up to 6 months after full charge and up to 4 years for Seiko Kinetic Auto Relay model.

How to use the device? Just place the Kinetic watch dials on top of it like shown in this picture.

Wow.. That's interesting. BUT must be dangerous for normal automatic watches, I would assume that it is using some sort of magnetic force.

Btw, you're a forumer at WUS too?? What's your nick there? Mine's the same.
