SOURCE: Seiko Diamatic Day Date Automatic Watch No: 219050

I have a Seiko Diamatic 780632. To set the day and date, pull the crown once and wind it upwards (away from you) to set the date; winding it downwards (towards you) will set the day. To set the time, you have to pull the crown twice and wind it towards you.

SOURCE: watch will not stay running

Most likely time to replace the capacitor with a new Lithium Ion battery. This is the correct way to fix this problem. No one uses the old capacitors any more. I do this repair daily as a Certified Master Horologist/watch repair man. Ron at

Seiko watch self winding mechanism does not keep watch wound. I have to set the watch unless i wear it 24-7

The issue reported is not about how to set the watch, it is about the fact that it stops if it us not worn continually. This could be an indicator of the movement needing to be serviced. Automatic watches such as yours need to be serviced regularly, every 3-5 years or as needed by such indications. My recommendation is to see a Certified Master Horologist to test the watch on the timing machine.

When serviced, there should be approximately a 45 hour power reserve when fully wound.

Thanks for rating!

Self-winding Seiko watch stops ticking.

Take it in to a watch repairer. Sounds like the self-winding spring is worn if not so then the watch repaier will find the problem. There is nothing you can do so do not attempt to fix it.

Getting a watch to start

Does it have a small plastic piece that should be discarded behing the crown? Remove it and push the crown in. Should start if it is a battery powered watch. If it is a windup or automatic you need to wind it first. Move the crown back and forth between between your fingers and give at least a dozen winds. If it is Seiko automatic you can't wind it. You must wave it sideways several times to wind, maybe a couple of minutes. If it is a Kinetic, do the same.

My watch keeps stopping after a few seconds of setting the time but also the part i nthe back which spins seems very loose and makes a noise

Your best bet is to contact Seiko direct as they do have a warranty for 2 years on movement. Best bet is you will have to send in for repair. I would contact them direct. Be prepared with the numbers on the back of the watch as that will ID the watch you have.

Runs A Few Seconds And The Stops

It sounds as though it is not winding up. There is often a manual winding facility which you can use but you need to check with the instructions for your watch.

If you do not have instructions you can get them from their web site "".

Hi ! Why my Seiko automatic ( cal.7S26A ) does not respond to my time adjusting ? Balance and a spiral are in perfect condition, the watch was properly cleaned. Thanks ! Erik

Even you wind the crown the hands not moving or not responding? If this the case then the trouble is in the clutch wheel .Maybe the gear is already breaks thats why it will not respond.
Feel free to ask whatever the results.

Hope its help:

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
