Its kinetic my friend, the capiciatator has gone it will charge in the day by movement and during the night the charge is taken by the watch as little movement. If yu rattle it left to right for at least 20 cm gap and give it at least 400 movements like this it should have ample charge for 7 days if it has not, you need to go to a jeweller who deals with kinetic watches to replace an item called a capacitor which is like a battery or engery holding unit. Can be quite easy to repair don't change a capacitor with a normal watch battery it will eventually overheat and ruin the mechanisms.

I just purchased my son a Seiko Divers Automatic 200M watch for graduation. For the first few days, the watch worked, but ran about 15-20 minutes fast. Now it won't move at all? Tried wearing it for 8...


Hi mtrahan99. My advice is to take it back and get it replaced, particularly if you have only had it a few days. If they won't exchange it or refund you, get a repair under the guarantee. Automatic watches (and Seiko actually make some very good ones) don't need to be worn all the time to wind them, and the fact that it ran so fast and has now stopped would indicate something major like problems with the mainspring. Return it! Hope this helps; Eagle58

Resetting the 'day'


Your Seiko has two pulls,first pull for DAY / DATE,and the second pull for the hour and minute.Just do the first pull then wind it clockwise for DAY and the counter clockwise for DATE.Feel free to ask whatever the result...

Hope this may help;

My seiko kinetic watch stops working overnight but it is fine whilst wearing it


Further to the previous solution...
Despite Seiko's claims regarding never having to change the 'battery', the power storage unit or ECU in Seiko-speak (not technically a 'battery') does eventually need replacing. From the symptoms you describe, it sounds as if the 'battery' on this watch is on its last legs as it is no longer charging properly. The good news is that it doesn't have to be an expensive job to have it replaced (providing you avoid going through the local jeweller <==> Seiko chain!). There are companies on the Internet who offer a replacement 'battery' service. I've used one in the past and was very satisfied with both the cost and the good service. A Google Search will probably return a choice of several in your country. Btw, if you have had your Seiko Kinetic for a few years, its probably worth paying a bit more and having it overhauled (clean and oil the movement and replace the watertight seals) at the same time.

My Kinetic watch stopped working.


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
