Cadence 4-bit Binary Ecomatic Watch

| January 26, 2012 |

The Cadence 4-bit binary watch comes with an ecomatic quartz movement from Miyota (a Citizen group company). What is unique about this movement is that needs no battery. If you wear it on your hand, each movement of your wrist is converted to stored energy that runs the watch.

Of course, there is also an option to wind the watch manually.  Even without winding, the movement stores enough energy for the watch to run for up to 36 hours at a stretch.

The face of the watch has analogue markings, so it’s quite simple to read the time- provided you are not one of those who can tell the time only on digital watches.

If you’re used to watches that automatically adjust date based on the month, be aware that this watch does not have that feature. So do be prepared to spend a minute on the first of every month to ensure that the date displayed is the right one.

The unisex design is minimalist but elegant. The case is made of 316L jewellery grade stainless steel. It is 12 mm thick and has a diameter of 40 mm. A scratch-resistant sapphire coated quartz glass ensures the watch doesn’t scratch easily, even if it suffers the typical knocks that wrist watches tend to.

A two part cotton strap with stainless steel buckle completes the physical detail of the watch. The Cadence 4-bit ecomatic watch is water-resistant to a depth of 50 metres.

The watch is priced at $215 (£140) and comes with a two year limited warranty on movement and hands.
