The movement is the brain of the watch. It is the mechanical entity that keeps accurate time. A movement should be evaluated by the functions it provides, how it provides those functions, and the quality of manufacturing. Electric utilizes the most accurate and most durable Japanese and Swiss analog movements on the market.

Surgical stainless steel prevents specific forms of corrosion. It is also known as marine grade stainless steel due to its increased resistance to chloride corrosion compared to type 304. 316 is often used for building nuclear reprocessing plants. It is generally used in stainless steel watches and marine applications, as well as exclusively in the fabrication of reactor pressure vessels for boiling water reactors, due to its high resistance to corrosion. 316 SS allows for precision machining and is used in electric’s cases, crowns, pushers, case backs and band hardware.
Grade 304 is the standard “18/8” stainless; it is the most versatile and most widely used stainless steel, available in a wider range of products, forms and finishes than any other. It has excellent forming and welding characteristics. Electric uses 304 SS in our stainless steel bands.
The process of using strong acid or mordant to cut into the unprotected parts of a metal surface to create a design or pattern. FW02 and DW01 models use this etching process to achieve the etched numbers and indicies in the bezel.
Jewels serve two purposes in a watch. First, they are implemented to reduced friction and can in turn, increase accuracy. Friction in the wheel train bearings and the escapement causes slight variations in the impulses applied to the balance wheel, causing variations in the rate of timekeeping. The low friction of jewel surfaces reduces these variations. Secondly, jewels can increase the life of the bearings. In un-jeweled bearings, the pivots of the watch’s wheels rotate in holes in the plates supporting the movement. The sideways force applied by the driving gear causes more pressure and friction on one side of the hole. In some of the wheels, the rotating shaft can eventually wear away the hole until it is oval shaped, and the watch stops.
Polyurethanes are used in the manufacture of flexible, high-resilience foam seating; rigid foam insulation panels; micro-cellular foam seals and gaskets; durable elastomeric wheels and tires (such as roller coaster wheels); automotive suspension bushings; electrical potting compounds; high performance adhesives; surface coatings and surface sealants; synthetic fibers (e.g., spandex); carpet underlay; hard-plastic parts (e.g., for electronic instruments); hoses and skateboard wheels. Fully reacted polyurethane is chemically inert. PU is highly moldable and desirable for watch bands due to its natural flexibility and soft feel against the skin. Unlike woven fabric bands or natural leather bands, PU is non-porous and quick drying, ideal for uses in and around water.
Physical vapor deposition is a variety of vacuum deposition methods used to deposit thin films by the condensation of a vaporized form of the desired film material onto various work piece surfaces. PVD is a common IP plating process used in the watch industry. The coating method involves purely physical processes such as high temperature vacuum evaporation with subsequent condensation, or plasma sputter bombardment rather than involving a chemical reaction at the surface to be coated as in chemical vapor deposition.
Is an extremely hard (MOHS 9-9.5) refractory ceramic material, similar to tungsten carbide. It is commercially used in tool bits. It has the appearance of black powder with nacl-type face centered cubic crystal structure. Titanium carbide is also used as a surface coating on some titanium watches. Electric uses titanium carbide in its PVD coating process for all black coatings, mainly seen on the bezel.
Electric offers a limited lifetime warranty on all watch movements and cases. There is a limited warranty on workmanship and materials for a period of (5) years after original purchase from an authorized Electric dealer. The limited warranty on battery life is (2) years from date of purchase.
This warranty does not cover normal wear and tear on, watch crystal, watch case, or abrasions to the strap or bracelet. Electric’s warranty does not cover internal or external damage caused by abuse or mishandling.
If Electric products are proven defective, Electric will replace them at no cost to you. If products are not considered defective, Electric will repair your product at a reasonable charge with your authorization. This warranty applies only to Electric watches purchased from authorized Electric dealers and is valid for the original purchaser only.

Super nice watch..... I agree the other gentlemen the strap is a bit odd... they should sell custom ss straps to go on any of the watches.... this one can feel big..... but the pu looks better than the nato but maybe doesnt feel as nice...... looks great

A beautiful timepiece and probably the last watch I will ever own. The only con is the restraining band that holds the loose end of the watch strap keeps sliding off causing the end of the strap to flap around. I suggest the Electric designers look at how timex fixed this problem with their polyurethane watch bands.
