Question about Seiko SKA192 Wrist Watch
I have a kinetic watch that I would only wear occaisionally. I would shake it for a minute or two and it would work fine; accumulating a full charge on the gage by mid-day. Now, if I shake it for a few minutes, the second hand seems to pause for about two seconds and then jumps forward two seconds. It will do this a few times and then stop altogether no matter how long I shake the mechanism. Do these watches have batteries that can be replaced; assuming it's a battery issue? Thanks
You can replace a tired capacitor (battery) in any Seiko Kinetic very easily, by yourself.
Online places charge 60 to 100 dollars.
The battery cost 20 dollars.
You will need a quality eyeglass screwdriver.
If you want step by step instructions just let me know.

This is a common problem with Seiko Kinetic watches that the capacitors only last 3 to 4 years. I only replace with Lithium Ion batteries. Ron at Timelywatchrepair.com

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
