Timely gift

Technically, you can't give someone the gift of more time, but you can give them a gift to help them keep time. My oldest daughter is 18 years old and I would love to get her an elegant, name-brand watch like one of the Seiko Kinetic watches. (They make these for females, right?) Now that she's in college she said she needs a watch more than she ever has. It's a little weird though given the fact that she has a cell phone, but I guess it's easier for her to glance at a watch than it is for her to look at her cell phone.

I think kinetic energy, which is still considered revolutionary, is so cool - and green! It means that the watch utilizes the power of the human body to keep it running. There aren't any batteries and no winding necessary. Kinetic watches have oscillating weights that are turned by the constant movement of the wearer's wrist, which turns into magnetic charge and then into electricity. The power it gets is stored until needed and if it ever stops all it takes is for the wearer to put it on for recharging. offers a large collection of kinetic watches including Coutura, Sportura, Dive, Premier and Velatura. The kinetic watch was first introduced by Seiko in 1988 and is maintenance free.

That’s a gift that will help the giver, receiver and the environment.
