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!

If it is a Kinetic Sports 50 then your battery needs to be replaced. (It used a capacitor in the old days, but now it is a battery.

I have a new chronograph Michele watch. How do I change the day of the week without changing the date?


As per the instruction PDF that I just read, the day of the week only changes with each 24 hour rotation. Therefore to change it, you might pull the crown out all the way and wind it through every hour in each day until it advances to the day you want. Then set the correct time. Push the crown in one notch to the second position and wind the dates forward until it stops on the one you want. It doesn't appear that going backwards for either the time (for day of the week) or date works.

How change batery ebel sport classic


This is not a simple task.You need a watchmaker with knowledge of Ebel watches.The case is opened by removing the bezel and splitting the crown stem.The watch module then pulls out of the front of the case.This is not simple I advise you dont try.At www.rolexrepairs.co.uk they operate a postal service so your watch can be returned within 2 or 3 days.

I have bought a new daytona but after every few hours it just stops anf i have to reset it again.its quite frustrating


A Rolex watch is automatic.It needs to be worn 8 hours per day to store enough power to run 36 hours off the wrist.Assuming that you are wearing the watch daily if it still stops there is a problem with the auto winding or mainspring.As a new watch it will be under the Rolex guarantee so return it to the place of purchase.If you dont have a guarantee contact www.rolexrepairs.co.uk for advice or a free estimate.

These are settings for the Timex SPORTS 1440 Magnetism (5b841 -W163US)
These are for the 4 button SPORTS 1440 (not 6 button) - they will also work for the 1440 SPORTS "Informer" model wrist watch - you will NOT find these instructions on the Timex website - only the 6 button which will not work on these watches is on that site!
