Question about Seiko Ladies Two Tone SUJ614 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

I have 4 seiko watches that no longer work. Most unreliable watch

I have 4 seiko watches that no longer work.I pulled the stem on them to save battery life as advised by my jeweler when I wasn't wearing them. The repairman said that they have to run constantly and that is why they broke. I have several 15 yr old cheap watches and not one has broken. I can't believe that these over $100 each watches were beat out by Timex and Amitron. Do you have any ideas on how to get them running again? I already spent $45 on one and it has stopped running again.
Thanks
Diane

    I was wondering if you could give me advice on cleaning the watches myself. I have nothing to lose. They are going to go in the garbage anyway.I will not spend any more money on repairing them because it didn't last.

    I also am surprised that you have problems with these watches. Like you, I have old cheap watches that are run intermittently and they are all OK. I guess that they are out of warranty so you can't take them back, so the only thing that I can think of is that you could try having one of them cleaned. If this fails, you could go to the Seiko web site "www.seikousa.com" or "www.seiko.co.uk" and go to the bottom of the page. There you will find "Contact us", click on this and tell them your story. You might get a pleasant response.

Mcdevito75 here, hello Diane, I'm afraid your jeweler is correct, and so are you. It is adviseable to pull the stem out to save the battery BUT, only if your not going to wear your watch for a long time, not just over night, here"s the problem!! the quartz mechanism and most of the works are plastic, and plastic while fairly flexable when new, gets hard over time, your pulling the stem to stop the watch everyday or even once a week most likely broke the switch in the mechanism that starts the watch, if so your only option is to replace the movement if you can get one. Pull the stem to stop your watch only if your not going to wear your watch for say 2 weeks toa month.

Seiko spindle removal


I am guessing you wish to remove the stem. There is a small lever on the inside of the watch near the stem. Pull the crown out to the first position. Look for the lever, it will have a very small dimple. Press on this with a needle or something similiar and pull on the crown at the same time. Voila!

How to set day/date on an 1968 DX automatic Seiko watch


Seiko watches from this period should have a setting stem that pull out half-way and fully. Pulling the stem out fully permits you to set the time. Pulling the stem out half-way should let you set the date by moving the crown forward/clockwise and set the day of the week by moving the crown backward/counterclockwise.

However, for this to work correctly, the watch must have the correct set stem. I have worked with a number of watches, including Seikos, where a generic stem was substituted after someone accidentally pulled out the crown and stem (Seiko replacement parts can be tough to find in the U.S., especially for discontinued models). If an incorrect stem has been installed, the day/date setting procedure I've just described may no longer work correctly. At that point, setting the date involves advancing the hands to get to the right date; day of the week may not be able to be set at all.

Good luck!

Hi,
If your watch stopped working while changing the time it can be for a couple of reason . One is i never set the watch between the hours of 11 pm and 4 am or else your movement can be damaged. The main reason is usually that the watch crown was not pushed all the way in to the first set . If the watch crown and stem is pulled out and not in the start position the watch will not run. Also after setting time you might need to reengage the watch by pressing on the jumper buttons on the top side of the crown they look like push buttons.

How to set Seiko alarm chronograph alarm?


Without the watch model it is hard to help you set the watch. Some Seiko watches use the watch stem which has two positions. Sometimes it is hard to identify the indentations so you may want to pull the stem all the way out then carefully push the stem to the first indentation. This will activate the alarm until it is pushed all the way in. When it is in the alarm on position, you can use the buttons to set the alarm time. However, I have 10 Seiko watches, and they are all unique to their functions, so it is best that you go to the link below and put the caliber code from the case back and look at the instructions.

Ensure crown is in neutral position i.e. pressed home (not in set hands posn.) Remove back and adjacent to the winding stem on the movement there should be a small button (may be indicated with an arrow) depress this gently whilst withdrawing the crown and stem from the watch. Ensure you don't engage to set hands position in the process. You might also find a couple of screws securing the movement into the case. P.S. Usually don't need to remove from case to replace battery.
