Question about Seiko SKA192 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

My Kinetic watch stopped working.

I recently left my Seiko Kinetic watch on my dresser for several days only to come back and find that it wasn't working. I have always worn it and only taken it off before bed and then back on in the morning. I shook it for about an hour and a half only to have the charge scale go up to the quarter level mark. The next day it stopped mid day. I shook it for quite a while after that with no results. What can I do to fix it?

I highly suspect and probably you also suspect that the energy storage capacitor needs to be replaced. My experience in working on these is that they are only good for about 3-4 years. I only replace with a new Seiko Lithum Ion battery. Check www.timelywatchrepair.com

My kenetic battery ( i think) operated watch ,N0, on the back plate-


First, does it say "Kinetic" on the face of the watch? If not, it is not a Seiko Kinetic. (You did not mention if it was a Kinetic or not.)

Second, the Serial number is not like any Seiko Kinetic I know, which is 2 4 digit numbers.

Third: The number you gave itself may indicate the type of button battery you need.

Good luck.

After 10 years it will be likely that the Kinetic capacitor will need upgrading. Your watch is designed to tick in two second intervals to tell you the power is very low. The power button will work again when it has some power to show. Yorkshire Watches www,yorkshirewatches.co.uk can do the upgrade for you if your in the UK. Give them a ring.

I have a Seiko kinetic watch and it has behaved perfectly for over two years and therefore I think that yours is faulty.

I suggest you send it to Seiko to have it repaired or replaced under warranty.

I do not know how to wind up my watch, while a swing to a later no.Please answer me.Model hours a Seiko Kinetic 5M62-0B40.Thank you


This watch operates on a capacitor which is charged by movement. It does not wind, but it has a weight that charges the capacitor by motion.

Take the watch in hand by placing your fingers under the caseback and your thumb on the crystal. Use a horizontal motion (landscape) to move the watch back and forth quickly approximately one foot left and right. You should feel the internal weight move.

Do this for at least five minutes. If the watch does not start to operate (the second hand does not move at one second increments) then either the capacitor must be replaced, or the movement is defective.

You may send the watch directly to Seiko for service, or I would strongly suggest visiting your local Certified Master Horologist for what is usually a free assessment and estimate of the repair.

If you are following the above directions, you have done nothing wrong, but the movement or capacitor needs to be replaced.

If you have just purchased this watch and the instructions do not resolve your situation, I would promptly return it and exchange it, as the model may have been sitting for a while, and have a bad capacitor.

Thank you for contacting FixYa.<br /> You will have to contact Seiko on this one.

My Seiko Kinetic winds down in one week after weaking a years and is not recharging to run after one day of wearing.


It sounds like that it is time to replace the capacitor with a new Lithium Ion battery. Send it to Timelywatchrepair.com. Go to this web sight

Can I use an ordinary button cell in a seiko kinetic


I have been trained by a Master watch maker and I have worked on many Seiko Kinetic watches. Yes the original watches came with a capacitor that is charged by your arm movement. But unfortunately, they seem to only last a few years. All replacements are now done with a Lithium Ion battery that is much better and lasts longer than the original capacitor. This is the correct solution and don't try to use a battery type that is used in other quartz watches.

Seiko Kinetic that doesn't work


This watch does not have a battery, but has a capacitor which is rechargable. It is not taking a charge, and needs to be replaced. You should take it to a store with a watchmaker ON THE PREMISES. Or you could send it to: www.bscwatchrepair.com
