This is a common problem for Seiko Kinetics. The capacitors seem to only last 3 to 4 years and they need to be replaced. I only use new Lithium Ion batteries.

Movado stops when not worn

It is likely you need to take it to be repaired.
There is some small piece of metal or grease that clutches when the watch is in your wrist.

A good watch repair service will do the job.

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!

My kenetic battery ( i think) operated watch ,N0, on the back plate-

First, does it say "Kinetic" on the face of the watch? If not, it is not a Seiko Kinetic. (You did not mention if it was a Kinetic or not.)

Second, the Serial number is not like any Seiko Kinetic I know, which is 2 4 digit numbers.

Third: The number you gave itself may indicate the type of button battery you need.

Good luck.

Why does the time stop after six to eight hours? Do I have to wind it often?

I'm guessing it's a Fully Automatic watch,which if worn all day should store enough 'kenetic energy'without manual winding!! You can buy watch winders on eBay that constantly move the watch when your not wearing it to keep it wound up!!

I have my dead brothers Seiko gold watch.. I cant set it fro Saturday to Saturday 15 to 19.. how do I do it..

Watches generally have three positions for the crown (winder).
1) The home position, where it can be wound.
3) Fully out; this is where the hands are adjusted to giv ethe correct time.

and (2) in between 1 and 3 . Here turning it one way changes the date and the other way changes the day.

My watch stopped run, it will only run for a few seconds and then stop, it has not been worn for a lot of years

This model is not on their web site but other SN models are and they are "self winding" types.

It could be that it needs to be wound by gently shaking it from side to side (face up). Some makers suggest several hundred times to wind the watch fully.

As most makers recommend that their watches are serviced every 2 or 3 years; if winding it up by shaking does not get it going, a trip to their service center might do the trick.

Why my seiko kinetic (Velatura - Direct Drive) will not stay wound in my watch winder

This is happening because capacitor can not store energy any more. Visit your closest watch repair shop and ask for new capacitor. Rate me, plz.
