    The Seiko SUN053P1 Prospex Kinetic GMT watch is a part of Seiko’s Land series of explorer’s watches. It is equipped with a hybrid, electro-mechanical movement, which denotes the second time-zone function with utmost precision.

    For those whose not familiar with the word “kinetic’, you can simply think of it as a watch movement that sometimes called automatic-quartz movement, and kinetic watches are basically the best elements of automatic and quartz watches together in one.

    A kinetic watch has a self-winding movement, just like an automatic, but it uses a quartz timekeeping mechanism. The kinetic system results in a power reserve of 6 months when the watch isn’t being used.

    To some, this might be one of the decisions whether to pick up a watch with kinetic movement or not. In terms of looks and specifications, there’s not much to complain about since it goes well with a suit, and its just ask comfortable with casual attire. Especially when the price has cut down to more than half, where you can pick one up for less 250.00 USD, its certainly worth looking into if you’re looking for your first kinetic movement watch.
