Seiko Premier Kinetic Perpetual SNP036P1: Basic Design
With 43 mm width, the size of the Seiko Premier Kinetic watches series Perpetual Calendar feels very appropriate considering the style of the model. I liked the number of complications that are introduced in the design, as well as the included kinetic direct movement of the disk. This model appeared before buyers in pink gold (watches are made of stainless steel and covered with pink gold) with a less complex set and a more affordable price.
Seiko Premier Kinetic Perpetual SNP036P1: Mechanism
Quartz mechanism Seiko Premier Kinetic Perpetual has a battery, which is charged through the rotor in the back of the clock. It is an interesting hybrid between mechanical and electronic watches. You do not need to change the batteries in the mechanism, as in normal quartz watches (although the clock may eventually require maintenance, like most any wristwatches).
The Auto Relay system will activate the watch once for 24 hours. I suppose this means that the rotor in the clock will not rotate. One interesting feature is that in the sleep mode the hands of the clock stop moving, but still watch out for the time and date they will be. The model can do this for up to four years with a full charge – the automatic relay system will transfer all the arrows to the correct position again. It seems to me that this is a very logical and relevant improvement in this watch.
Inside the Seiko Premier Kinetic Perpetual watch is a 7D56 caliber machine. You already know that it is kinetic and has Auto Relay, it also has a complicated calendar. This means that the clock always shows the exact date, and will not need to be adjusted until 2100! The information on the dial includes time (with a central second hand), a larger date (a large-sized date window that uses two disks and is located close to 12 o’clock), a month, a leap year indicator, and a 24-hour arrow (useful by the way, like And AM / PM indication).
Seiko Premier Kinetic Perpetual SNP036P1: Dial & Appearance
The watch markers are large and polished, they look very beautiful next to white Roman numerals on a black background. The Roman hours on the bottom of the dial are larger than those at the top. While on the upper-level large gold hour markers are used, they become smaller at the bottom. This creates an oblong appearance, but despite the appearance of asymmetry, the disk is ideally centered. In addition, you will get a mixture of hour markers and Roman numerals.
