    Difference between Automatic watch and kinetic watch?

    I always though the two were the same until I heard they weren't.
    Can anyone tell me the difference?

    What category would the watches that can store a charge for like 3+ years and resume normal function when moved fall in?

    A mechanical automatic stores its energy in a spring.
    A kinetic or autoquartz is a hybrid that stores energy in a battery or cap.
