yes, in the winter i wear kinetic watches, as my coat sleeves and my long sleeves covers my watch most of the time, thus not allowing much light. i wear the solar watches in the spring, summer and fall so, i can recharge my watch via the sun.
Guys, sorry, wonderful watch but this is not a good price. Ashford routinely run the Seiko Kinetics on sale for $79 with metal bracelets. I bought a SKA523 before Christmas for that price.
To answer your question about kinetic vs. solar, they are both great technologies. The choice really depends on how you wear your watch. If you wear it every day, then a kinetic will stay charged. If you only wear it occasionally, it will eventually run down. The solar is better if you only wear it occasionally. If you leave it near a window or bright room light, it will stay charged.
Kinetic requires no battery.
Yes they do. Seiko now uses a rechargeable lithium ion button cell in their kinetic watches and yes, it will eventually need replacement.
The original kinetics used a capacitor instead of a battery and they caused many problems (leakage) and didn't hold a charge as long as the new lithium ion battery.
