My first adventure into the world of "kinetic" movements. The amount of swing time to put energy into the battery is tiresome when the dang thing runs out of juice due to infrequent use. Still, it does run well and looks good doing it. It must have made a negative impression as I haven't another in my collection. Also there is no luminous material whatsoever, which is depressing in and of itself.

Am guessing it is a Citizen movement inside? Maybe not as I have not had any issues with Eco-Drive movements even after weeks of not being worn. The few I have owned "hibernate" and have months long power reserve if left alone in a dark watch box.

One of my favorite watches I have yet owned, picked up in trade from an esteemed WL. One I wouldn't have considered buying; but, now one I can't imagine not owning. Best watch surprise of the year.

Not solar. Kinetic.


I own one kinetic and one day a week wear to work keeps it charged. I wouldn't get another.

Day off, in Atlantic City with the wife and family!

Low lighting in the Borgata, whoops.

She as well as the other two survived a full on spray by a wiry looking, daytime skunk who entered our backyard yesterday AM. Ruined coffee time and this one got a face full. She foamed, puked, gagged and snotted like nothing I have ever seen.

A whole lot of dog washing, a whole lot of human washing, many clothes and towels in the garbage and aired the house out for a full day.

Quite an adventure. And since animal control has never called me back, I have ordered a nice .177 caliber high power air rifle should the shiftless, wandering and possibly rabid skunk return. With heavy rounds it will shoot 1,200 FPS.

It is, finally. Her muzzle still has a bit of odor but it isn't overwhelming.

Poor thing, she was so sick. I didn't realize how much I got on my hands when I was rinsing her face under an outdoor faucet. Got in the shower and BAM! Hot water really stirred it up.

Got to work and asked coworkers if I stunk. Initially they said no; but, after about 30 seconds I got, "Eww. You smell like you haven't bathed in a few weeks and are wearing clothes you found in a dumpster." Lovely. 😂
