Question about Seiko Kinetic watch
Hi, Look on page 11 of your manual for the proper procedure to restart watch after a battery change, or complete discharge of capacitor system. If you don't have the manual, Try this link:
Take the four-digit module number from the back of the watch, enter it, and download a PDF of your watch setting-instructions/manual.
I hope this helps you. Thanks, Bill

Please expplain what you mean by "cell replacement. If you mean the battery was replaced and the watch is not running it can be several things.
The most common mistake I see people make when they try to install a new battery in a Seiko Kinetic is they put the battery in upside down. The battery is the opposite of most watches...you should not be able to see what type battery it is, it is face down.
The second problem is people do not install the mylar insulator correctly. I have fixed a lot of Seiko Kinetics merely by putting a mylar insulator the way it is supposed to go.
Other problems can include the central stem all the hands are attached to gets pushed into the crystal when the watch is open because the people working on the watch did not use a watch holder. I have gotten many "broken" Seiko Kinetics where an amateur tried to replace the battery and ended up ruining the watch this way.
Also, the pendulum sits on top of a gear. This gear must mesh perfectly with a tiny tiny gear that is hard to miss. If it wasn't meshed when the watch was put back together then the watch will not work.
But, the most important thing to remember is if your watch stopped working after you installed a new battery then the installation was not done correctly. If a battery is in the watch in the right way the watch will run for several months even though it is not being moved.
Turn the hands around 12 or more hours.
Push the crown all the way in.
Push the Indicator button...If there is no Reserve power you will
need to install a new battery in the correct manner.
