SOURCE: Rubber bracelet broken

Contact Skagen on line and provide the model number of the watch that should be found on the case back. They should be able to provide a replacement.

SOURCE: I am a resent owner of a 5m62 Seiko Kinetic watch.

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.

Need to send my seiko watch in, makes noise and stopped, no. on back is 507809 is it the sn.


I had a stunning Seiko, back in the '70's. Went into a pawn shop, silver and turquoise Navajo bracelet. Cost me $50. 2 yrs later, it screeched to a halt. Sent it back and sent $25. Two years later, it happened again. Ergo, I had to re-buy my Seiko every 4 years. So I replaced it with a $10 Timex, that is Still running. Love the set, now! That was then. It seems they Still want to do all the work.... I now have a favorite jeweller, the family has been in business since the ? - 1930's? I would find someone like the Butterfield Jewelers, call and ask if they can work on your watch. (these guys are Amazing! I take my solar watch to them just to re-set it!

My Seiko railroad approved bracelet solar power watch stopped, how do I get it running


the advice is to buy a new one, no one is fitting the batteries to these, due to the high part cost.

I need to get a spare bracelet link for a Seiko SMA075. Where is it available? Thank you.


You can get bracelet links for Seiko watches at Coserv, Seiko's main repair center located in New Jersey. The phone number to Coserv is 1-800-722-4452. If for some reason your links are discontinued occasionally a local watch repairman will have spare links! I hope this helps!

Adjust watch band for Seiko 7T94 Stanless Steel Band


You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet. Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.
Don't forget to rate, please.
