    Just saw this. My Seiko solar watch is doing the same thing. It is only 1-1/2 years old!! Shouldn’t the cell last longer than that. I had my Citizen Eco Drive for at least 15 years before it stopped working!

The internal cell may require to be changed. It is very important you use the proper cell for your watch. This is assuming the solar cell is working properly.

SOURCE: The second hand of my Tissot watch T870/970 starts and stops.

Hello!
Absolutely astonished by this "solution" from escapement.
This watch is working perfectly - it is simply giving its "end of battery life warning".

I have this seiko solar chronograph watch for one year and stop working, I tried to charge it with sun light with no success, any idea ?


Replace the battery, the solar part doesn't mean it charges from the sun it has to do with the movement of the arms (I'm not %100 what that means) I just know it doesn't charge by the sun or any other light source.

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.

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
