I just replaced the battery in my 20yr old Seiko chrono sports 100. And I had the same problem. I think I stopped it on 12 while in stopwatch mode and held down the start stop button and the set button at the same time. See if that works dude.

Here is the information from the website. The link to the manual is provided below. HOW TO CHARGE AND START THE WATCH Swing the watch from side to side approximately 50 times. * Before swinging the watch, check and remember where the minute hand is so that you can tell if the start-up indicator has worked or not. First, check that the crown is at the normal position. * If the crown is pulled out and the watch is swung, the start-up indicator will not work even if the watch starts operating. * Swing rhythmically at a rate of twice a second. * No additional benefit is obtained by swinging the watch more quickly or with greater vigor. * When the watch is swung, the oscillating weight in the generating system rotates to drive the mechanism. As it rotates, it gives out a sound, which is not a malfunction. 1 2 The minute hand moves quickly and stops as the watch starts operating. (Start-up indicator) Then, it will move at 20-second intervals. 3 After checking that the minute hand has done this, pull out the crown to set the time. 4 After pushing back the crown in to the normal position, swing the watch further approximately 350 times to reserve one day of power, and then, put the watch on your wrist. http://www.seikowatches.com/support/ib/pdf/1m20_e.pdf Good luck, Techjoel

It is unlikely that the capacitor will have any charge on it so you should shake it gently to charge it up. You certainly can't do any harm by charging it, even if the capacitor did have any charge.

SOURCE: I have purchased a new
if the resistance hasnt been reached via water depth or height in air it should be fine. if the incriments havent changed by five mintues after charging seek repair via the store you got it from or the Seiko customer service at
SEIKO Corporation of America - Service Center
1111 Macarthur Boulevard, Mahwah, NJ 07430, U.S.A.

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.
