Its ticking in two second intervals because it is very low on power. It should keep correct time and eventually settle down. It needs a long exposure to a nice bright sunny day and it will be fine once it has a good charge for definate.

SOURCE: I have a seiko flight watch, unknown of the model, second hand doesn't reset

I guess the blue faced SEIKO is a Flightmaster (Model: 7T92- OCFO)and it is a great watch. This is a common problem with most chronographs and this happens due to misalignment with usage.

All you need to do is pull out the locking crown all the way out (2nd Step) as if setting time. and then press and hold the top / left button and at first the milli seconds hand resets. after which you have to press the borrom / right button to move the seconds hand in to place. and then reset the time and lock the crown. You can repeat this for Milli Seconds, Seconds, Minutes & hours hands.
Hope this helps,

SOURCE: second hand movement

Your TAG is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature. This is the cause of that 4 seconds interval movement of seconds hand and thus indicating the time for battery replacement. The timekeeping is not affected by this- it is just warning to replace battery a.s.a.p.
Find your nearest watchmaker and ask for battery replacement.

Do not forget to rate, please.

SOURCE: Seiko Chronograph 7T32 minute hand inactive after battery replace

you often need to do a full reset on 7T32s (& other seikos) after a battery change. there is a small reset contact in the rear of the movement which needs to be shorted to the top of the battery (the movement is engraved with wording to this effect, something like "AC reset", I can't remember exactly). you might also try pulling out the crown all the way (2 clicks) then holding both upper pushers in for a few seconds. it's unlikely to be a buggered motor unless it's one of the subdials that's failed.

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.

My seiko is keeping good time but the second hand jumps two seconds then hesitates for what seems to be a second then skips two seconds again


There are three solutions for this problem, contingent upon the model:

With both instances, this is a power saving / low charge / low battery feature of the timepiece.

1) Is your Seiko watch a Kinetic / Solar model? If so, your watch contains a capacitor. The capacitor may be bad, OR if you have not been wearing it on as regular a basis, wind the watch (Kinetic) vigorously for 5 minutes, and if the second hand returns to normal function, the capacitor is most likely fine. If is is a Solar model, expose it to sunlight for 4-6 hours or incandescent light for 24 hours and see if this resolves the problem.

2) Else: if this is a standard battery operated watch, take your watch to an authorized Seiko repair center, or Certified Master Horologist. Make sure that the Seiko Repair Center is using Seiko batteries, else make sure they are installing Energizer only - these two batteries will not leak in your movement. Avoid other batteries at all cost, many of them will leak and ruin your movement.

3). If these solutions do not work, and you have not had your watch serviced in the last 3 to 5 years, you need to service the movement. See the aforementioned parties to begin the process.

4) If your watch is water resistant, and/or you plan on wearing it in the water, make sure to have your watch water tested by the appropriate aforementioned professional to ensure it will withstand proper dynamic and static pressure at the appropriate depths.

Second hand could be stuck against the crystal inside or it is slipping on the shaft. Both of these conditions can be fixed but the case back would have to be removed and the movement removed to fix this problem

After replacing the capacitor in my 5J32-OAPO the


It is possible that the second hand is touching the crystal. However, this probably would have only happened if for some reason you remove the movement from the case and in putting it back in it now touches the crystal. If this is not the case, then I am assuming that you have pushed the crown all the way in. Please let me know if any of this works for you. I don't know of any reason that replacing the capacitor would only affect the second hand.
