The Ventura Sparc MGS has a rotary mass which relays the momentum of your wrist to a micro-generator, continuously feeding an optoelectronic time-module. What this actually means is that the watch powers itself using your movements,without the need for a battery.

It also has a very sleek design, which includes a viewing panel that allows you to see right into the energy producing mechanism itself. The watch looks deceptively simple, housing not only a mini generator but also a host of features, all of which can be operated using just a scroll wheel.
