Seiko Two-Tone White Textured Dial Men's Watch #SKH196


Your Price $550.00
Powerfully styled and technologically advanced, the Seiko SKA233 two-tone stainless steel men's watch feature's Seiko's kinetic quartz movement, which contains its own internal electrical generator--operated by natural wrist movements--making it independent of conventional storage batteries. The step-motion second hand will move in 2-second intervals when energy is reaching a level of less than 3 hours.

It features a large, round watch case that measures 1.7 inches in diameter and a gray dial background that's accented by gold-tone hands (with a thin second hand). The dial markers mix triangle shapes and Roman numerals, and it also features small minute indexes that surround the outer dial. The silver stainless steel bracelet band mixes polished and gold-tone textured pieces, and it's joined by a push-button butterfly clasp. The skeleton caseback lets you see the watch's inner mechanics. It's capped by a highly polished gold-tone crown that's tipped with a black center. Other features include a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, date function at 3 o'clock, and water resistance to 100 meters (330 feet).

Kinetic: A powerhouse in technological innovation

Like mechanical and quartz, Kinetic is a platform. Over the past 20 years, SEIKO has created on this platform a suite of Kinetic movements, each bringing unique features to the consumer.

It was at the 1986 Basel Fair that SEIKO unveiled its first Kinetic prototype. Introduced under the trial name of 'AGM', it was the first watch in the world to convert kinetic movement into electrical energy. It was the first step in a development that, 20 years later, has made Kinetic synonymous with environmental friendliness, high performance and long-lasting convenience to a generation of users worldwide. From the launch in 1988 of the first commercially available watch (then under the new name AGS) until today, over eight million Kinetic watches have been sold (as of 2007).

In 1998, Kinetic Auto Relay was released, extending the 'at-rest' operating period of the watch to a remarkable 4 years. 1999 saw the launch of the Ultimate Kinetic Chronograph, a masterpiece which fused the very best of SEIKO's mechanical and electronic watch making skills, and in 2003 another Kinetic Chronograph was launched. At Baselworld 2005, the Kinetic Perpetual made its first appearance, combining Kinetic convenience and longevity with a perpetual calendar, correct to the year 2100. In 2007, SEIKO's emotional technology Kinetic Direct Drive is introduced.
