If you want to avoid this in future purchases of Kinetic watches, get one that features "Direct Drive" which is where the crown can be spun freely to charge up the power unit. I guess the delay you saw was the time taken for the battery voltage to rise up to a level required by semiconductors to begin operating. While the voltage rises towards a minimum threshold nothing will happen. A mechanical watch is different because all that's needed is a fraction of tension in the mainspring and a little nudge of the balance wheel to get it going.
