Today I saw a very beautiful Seiko kinetic---I was thinking of buying it. It was a kinetic perpetual date---with a month wheel. Let me say, it was beautiful! It was so solid, so well-made.
I have absolutely no experience with kinetics---do they capture anything near the feeling of owning/wearing an automatic?
Can you truly feel the rotor as you do in an automatic?
How long does the battery last?
For that matter, how many swings of the rotor before the battery is fully charged?
