Question about Seiko Kinetic watch

1 Answer

I impulsively bought a Swiss kinetic woman's watch (Mido) on Saturday from Victorinox. It stops running every day around 2:30. If the capacitor needs to be replaced, can I trust the salespeople to fix it or should they send it away? (They gave me a model from the display.)

Please do not trust a person that is not experienced in replacing the capacitor. This is not a simple job like replaceing a battery in a quartz watch. I do this every day and like to use a good microscope to be sure of proper alignment of the insulator that goes between the battery and the strap. Don't let an inexperienced person screw up your nice watch

What kind of battery does a victorinox officer's 1884 watch use


It might say on the back cover of the watch, if not, when you carfully pry the back of the watch off, you will see the battery, and it will say on the battery what it is.

On my sports 50 it stops if it is off of my wrist for 14 hours . Also I dont know how to change the day sign to english


This is obviously unsatisfactory and I can understand your problem. Even spring driven automatic watches will run for 2 - 3 days when not worn.

Your watch can either be charged by use (i.e. wearing it) or by winding the crown wheel, although there seem to be a variety on kinetic watches and it is not clear if all of them can be wound by hand (mine can't but it goes to sleep after two days and can stay in this mode for 3 months and re-starts when it is worn!)

For a fully description of the kinetic operation go to http://www.seikowatches.com/technology/kinetic/kinetic_dd.html and there you will will see a choice of kinetic watches.

You can also access the instruction manual list to check out how your watch is intended to operate. Some watches indicate days in two languages (as yours appears to do) and you can select the correct day by pulling the crown wheel to the middle position where you generally change the date by rotating it forward and the day by turning it backward. When turning it backward, you should see and alternative day and you should stop at this position. The watch will continue with the same language after this.
If this does not work, then you should be able to find out the day sign after reading the instructions.

If your watch is new and after reading all the literature you still cannot sort out how to make your watch run for a longer period, then contact the maker who should be able to help.

Good luck!

The second hand jumps forward every 5 seconds but the watch still keeps time OK.


You need to replace battery.
Q/A from swiss army website.
Q. How do I know when the battery needs changing?
A. In select models, the battery end-of-life indicator signals that the battery should be replaced within two or three days. When the battery is low, the second hand stands still for 2-4 seconds, and then speeds up to the correct time. This indication will last for approximately one week, and then the timepiece hands stand still.
