It is unlikely that the capacitor will have any charge on it so you should shake it gently to charge it up. You certainly can't do any harm by charging it, even if the capacitor did have any charge.

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.

hi , like all capacitor based watches you will need a lot of activity to put the charge back in and use the watch as the daily wear.
the other issues could be it requires a new capacitor contact seiko.

My watch runs too fast: adds appr. 1 minute every 24 hours


That is way too fast for a Seiko Kinetic. There is no adjustment to slow it down. With time of course it might run slower as the gears get dirty. Maybe Seiko will replace the movement, worth asking

After hours of winding, does not keep charge,


As you probably have found out by now, the capacitors that came with the Seiko watches usually only last about 3-4 years. Then they need to have a new Lithium Ion battery installed in place of the capacitor. Please get a qualified person to do this for you. I do this every day. Ron at timelywatchrepair.com

Seiko SNA413P1 second hand not on 0 exactly


It is probably the way the second hand was placed onto the watch when the watch was put together. The hand will only move in a set interval so if it's "off" you cannot fix it unless you have someone take the watch apart. I would not worry about it being a fake because honestly Sekio watches are not expensive enough to fake. Here's a good rule of thumb, if the watch cost under $1000 then it is probably not going to be something that people will make a counterfeit model of. Finding a "fake" Seiko, Citize, Bulova, or any mid-level watch is not likely.

Seiko Kinetic that doesn't work


This watch does not have a battery, but has a capacitor which is rechargable. It is not taking a charge, and needs to be replaced. You should take it to a store with a watchmaker ON THE PREMISES. Or you could send it to: www.bscwatchrepair.com
