Question about Seiko Sun007 Kinetic Watch for Men

1 Answer

I have purchased a new Seiko kinetic SUN007 mens watch. After hours of swinging back & forth to charge the watch, the 'second' hand still moves in two-second increments. (After charging via movement, it should move in the normal one-second increments). Any help please?

I have a Seiko kinetic watch and it has behaved perfectly for over two years and therefore I think that yours is faulty.

I suggest you send it to Seiko to have it repaired or replaced under warranty.

Charge indicator on my Seiko Kinetic watch does not work. Watch keeps good time. Is there a fix?


Bill, when you say "does not work" I am going to guess you mean that the second hand does not sweep as it should, so you do not have an accurate indication of remaining capacitor charge.
There are many other malfunctions of the Indicator on a Seiko Kinetic but I am guessing that is your current watches malfunction.
The button at 2 o'clock depresses a tiny lever inside the watch, and that in turn releases a discharge from the capacitor.
The strength of that discharge swings the indicator.
The lever itself is very very small, and can be misaligned, very commonly after capacitor replacement.
Actual breakage of the lever is quite rare.
Does the button have a definite detente when you press it?
Or is it instead like pushing on Jello.
Is the button spring loaded such that it returns to the neutral state on its own?
It is actually a quick diagnosis for anyone familiar with Kinetics; as a quick peek will tell if a broken lever, absent button gasket, need of lubricant, etc.

No work quartz


This watch is kinetic, in that a moving rotor inside the watch powers a rechargeable battery that runs the quartz mechanism. You should not need to attempt to open the watch! It may be that the battery is flat (especially if it's not been worn for a while) - you can try swinging the watch back and forth to charge it (check online for charging instructions for Seiko or Pulsar kinetic watches). If that fails, take it to a reputable establishment for repair.

My 5 year old Seiko kinetic (divers') watch: beyond shaking, is there a way to wind it? I used to be able to press the power button and see the second hand advance 20 seconds. Now I never have enough...


I am going to make an assumption or two. One is you wear your watch regularly. At least every other day. Two is you are not sedentary. Try wearing the watch for three days. If the power indicator doesn't read at least 15 to 20 you have a bad cell (capacitor). If it does charge up to 15 to 20 then see if it lasts very long. Should last a couple weeks or more. If not then you still have the same problem. You can also go to a watchmaker and he will have a piece of equipment that can charge your cell in 3 1/2 hours. Then if the cell goes dead rapidly he/she will replace it. Should cost around 50 or less.

I do not know how to wind up my watch, while a swing to a later no.Please answer me.Model hours a Seiko Kinetic 5M62-0B40.Thank you


This watch operates on a capacitor which is charged by movement. It does not wind, but it has a weight that charges the capacitor by motion.

Take the watch in hand by placing your fingers under the caseback and your thumb on the crystal. Use a horizontal motion (landscape) to move the watch back and forth quickly approximately one foot left and right. You should feel the internal weight move.

Do this for at least five minutes. If the watch does not start to operate (the second hand does not move at one second increments) then either the capacitor must be replaced, or the movement is defective.

You may send the watch directly to Seiko for service, or I would strongly suggest visiting your local Certified Master Horologist for what is usually a free assessment and estimate of the repair.

If you are following the above directions, you have done nothing wrong, but the movement or capacitor needs to be replaced.

If you have just purchased this watch and the instructions do not resolve your situation, I would promptly return it and exchange it, as the model may have been sitting for a while, and have a bad capacitor.

Two sec jumps is low power in the elec store,,, winds with movement back and forth as your arm would swing. Sometime the day date function is changed by pressing the small button type crown in slightly with your finger nail.it may have on or two detents if so it adjusts both functions. if not the stemcrown needs to be used to set day and button to set date.

Seconds hand stops moving


1st reason. This means your oscillating weight and paired gears are not generating enough power to charge capacitor, thus not be able to move hand properly. 2nd reason. Capacitor can not recharge itself to full power and needs to be replaced. 3 reason. Seconds or chrono wheel has a mechanical fault developed over the time and needs to be cleaned or replaced. Those are 3 reasons why the seconds hand stops moving in Kinetic watch. Which one is right, you will find out only after visiting watch repair shop, because I can not give correct estimate without seeing the watch myself.
Rate me, plz.

I have not worn my SEIKO kinetic wrist watch for a


Here is the information from the website. The link to the manual is provided below. HOW TO CHARGE AND START THE WATCH Swing the watch from side to side approximately 50 times. * Before swinging the watch, check and remember where the minute hand is so that you can tell if the start-up indicator has worked or not. First, check that the crown is at the normal position. * If the crown is pulled out and the watch is swung, the start-up indicator will not work even if the watch starts operating. * Swing rhythmically at a rate of twice a second. * No additional benefit is obtained by swinging the watch more quickly or with greater vigor. * When the watch is swung, the oscillating weight in the generating system rotates to drive the mechanism. As it rotates, it gives out a sound, which is not a malfunction. 1 2 The minute hand moves quickly and stops as the watch starts operating. (Start-up indicator) Then, it will move at 20-second intervals. 3 After checking that the minute hand has done this, pull out the crown to set the time. 4 After pushing back the crown in to the normal position, swing the watch further approximately 350 times to reserve one day of power, and then, put the watch on your wrist. http://www.seikowatches.com/support/ib/pdf/1m20_e.pdf Good luck, Techjoel
