SNP015P2 an analogue quartz watch equipped with the Kinetic technology developed by Seiko. It generates the electric energy to power the watch, utilizing the movement of your body, and stores it in the rechargeable battery, which requires no periodical replacement unlike conventional button-type batteries.
This watch has a power save function and time relay function. In order to conserve the stored electrical energy, the watch automatically enters power save mode to stop the hands from moving approximately 24 hours after the watch is taken off the wrist. When you decide to wear the watch again, simply swinging the watch several times will awaken it and the hands will indicate the correct time to resume normal operation.
Perpetual Calendar with leap year correct until February 28, 2100 Time relay system preserves accurate time for up to 4 years. When the watch senses 24 hours of inactivity, it puts itself into suspended animation (sleep mode) to conserve energy. The date continues to advance correctly while the watch is asleep. Wake it up with a few shakes of your wrist and it automatically resets itself to the correct time even if it has been asleep for up to 4 Years.
While the watch is in power save mode, the perpetual calendar continues to function. Even if the watch is completely stopped due to a shortage of stored electrical energy, the calendar can be manually adjusted by simple procedures.
This watch is powered by electrical energy generated and stored by the built-in Kinetic System. The watch also features the “power save function,” which automatically stops the hands from moving when the watch is not in use for a certain period of time to minimize the electrical energy consumption. When the watch is in power save mode, the hands stop moving but the built-in IC continues to calculate the time and calendar.
When the watch is in power save mode, swinging the watch several times will activate the “time relay function,” which automatically resets the watch hands to the correct time that has been retained inside the watch.
When the watch is left untouched for approximately 24 hours (approximately one day), the power save function is automatically activated. When the power save function is activated, the hour, minute, second and 24-hour hands will stop moving. When the watch is in power save mode, the hands stop moving but the built-in IC continues to calculate the time. When a certain amount of electrical power is generated, the watch hands are adjusted automatically to the time retained inside the watch.
This watch requires no periodic battery replacement as it is powered by the exclusive rechargeable battery, which is completely different from conventional batteries for watches. This exclusive rechargeable battery is an environmentally friendly, clean energy storage device.
