If you don't wear the watch often enough to keep it charged then another solution is to purchase (maybe online) a rather inexpensive mechanical rotating device (nice looking too) that you put your watch into and it rotates and keeps your watch always fully charged. Works great at night when you come home. I am guessing maybe less than $30. I have one and it is the only way to go.

SOURCE: I do not know how
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.
