One of the greatest advances in watch design and technology is the rise and development of kinetic watches. 

Kinetic energy is essentially the energy of motion. A kinetic watch uses the everyday movement and motion of the wearer to power the watch without the use of batteries. Some kinetic watches are also known as automatic-quartz, with is the combination of automatic power and quartz movement.
