Professional and recreational sailors alike require one thing above all else in their choice of watch: reliability. They have to be able to trust their watch to perform, year in and year out, without fear of it winding down or of battery drain. For the most demanding watch users on the high seas, Kinetic Direct Drive is the ultimate technology of trust. Wear it and it maintains perfect time. It is recharged by the wearer's motion, but Kinetic Direct Drive can also be wound by hand. When winding the crown, the wearer can see the precise amount of energy generated on the Direct Drive indicator. Leave it for a few days and you can wind it to see the power being transmitted to the watch in real time - the perfect re-assurance that the watch is both operational and adequately charged.
Kinetic Direct Drive is an expression of SEIKO's emotional technology. It is built to allow maximum interaction with the wearer. It takes its energy from its wearer and allows him or her to relate in real time to its functions. To wear Kinetic Direct Drive is to experience time in a human, visceral and emotionally satisfying way. Like Velatura itself, Kinetic Direct Drive is built for the oceans.
