If you are on the watch for watches, you may be interested in learning more about watches. There are all sorts of interesting watch types and terms. For example, do you know what is the meaning of kinetic watches or chronometer watches? Do you know what a cubic zirconia wath is?
Kinetic Watches – Kinetic watches are timepieces that utilize the power from the human body to keep the watch running. There are no batteries needed and you should not have to wind the watch to keep it going. Kinetic watches have oscillating weights that are turned by constant movement from the wrist. The constant movement turns into a magnetic charge in the watch and then into electricity. Kinetic watches are powered by kinetic energy. The term kinetic energy comes from the Greek words kinesis and energia, which mean motion and energy.
