Tip & How-To about Seiko Watches
Seiko makes genuine Seiko capacitors for the various Seiko Kinetic watches.
The Seiko capacitor 3023 5MZ is about 16 dollars on Amazon right now, it fits the 5M42 and 5M43 Kinetic.
The Seiko capacitor 3023 44Z is about 26 dollars on Amazon. It is for the 5M62 and 5M63 Kinetic models.
However the less expensive 3023 5MZ replaces the 3023 44Z for 10 dollars less.
And also comes with the 2 accessories I like to replace when I install a new capacitor, the metal hold-down, and the Mylar insulator.
The 3023 44Z, although more expensive, does not include either.
Both capacitors are the TC920S.
Don't waste money buying the 3023 44Z.
Get the 3023 5MZ instead. It is 10 dollars cheaper and the same thing.
(Use plastic tweezers always, and don't touch the contacts, ever.)
