About Seiko 5M62
The untrained eye chooses a watch just because it is beautiful, but you know that the movement is what defines true quality. The Seiko 5M62 movement is a variant of automatic-quartz technology. Seiko pioneered this innovation of the kinetic movement by releasing the first version in a watch in 1988. The Seiko kinetic movement works by charging a lithium power cell using a pendulum that spins a pinion, which winds a small electric generator. The cell drives the movement, which creates a different feel on your wrist than you would experience with a regular Seiko automatic watch. This is because there is more resistance caused by the pendulum and a slightly louder noise cause by the motion. The Seiko 5M62 movement has a useful feature that lets you know when its power reserves are running low. You can charge the movement simply by swinging your wrist. Approximately 450 wrist swings builds up enough charge for two days. The Seiko movement is available in a number of styles of men's watches available in the large inventory on eBay.
