Unfortunately, the Seiko website does not have a serial number lookup, so you'll have to identify the model. The "8123-7190" is what Seiko calls the "caliber code." Entering that on the page linked below will narrow down the model number list for you. Clicking on the link for your model will give you the instructions in PDF format. The instructions for your model tell you what size battery to use. For example, the manual for the 8F32 states on page 11 that the battery size for that model is CR2412. (Note - be sure to get the correct instructions; different models have different battery sizes.) "Automatic" Divers watches have no battery, they are powered by a spring mechanism.

As it is a dive watch , it will be sealed and that requires specialist tools to remove the back and new gaskets to reseal it
Take it to a jeweller for the job and save the watch

SOURCE: the rubber band broke on my seiko dive

mcdevito75 here, Best Bet, you may need a special tool to remove and replace the SPRING BARS (PINS) that hold the band onto the watch, then you may even need new spring Bars, (pins) to re-attach the band to rthe watch. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop in your area to change the band.

Where can I find a review or description of seiko men’s 5N0313 dive watch ? I can’t find any


Seiko 5N0313 refers to the movement fitted inside the watch - it's not the model number of your particular watch.
Go to

https://www.leaf.tv/articles/how-to-find-a-seiko-model-number/

where there should be enough info' to allow you to determine the model number, then do a search based on that number.

How to remove the bezel insert


Hi Tim:
Seiko watches are fairly valuable. I've had one of the dive watches for close to 40 years with zero maintenance needed.
Unless you really know what you're doing, if it was me, I'd be taking it to a really watch repair person.
It's worth it, unless the watch is of no value to you.
But that's just my opinion.
Cheers.

The chronograph second hand now resets to the 5 O-Clock position?


I have found instructions that tell you how to reset the hands but there are several buttons on your watch and to avoid confusion you really need to see a diagram.

You can do this by going to the Seiko web site (seiko.com), click on "support", then "instruction booklets".

Scroll down the next page and you will see a list of the watches made by Seiko. Select yours and download.

Go to page 16.

Seiko M705 - 5A10 series divers watch. Time is Frozen


Have the batteries checked and an "AC" done to it. These watches generally have several batteries and the die off can be slow and only fail partially. The "AC" or all clear function will reset the circuit board and bring all your functions back.
As with any dive watch, be sure that you take it to a watch maker/technician that can reseal and pressure test the watch to insure it is safe for diving.

Can i dive with this watch?


You definetely CAN NOT dive with this watch. It is good for swimming and snorkeling only. Real divers watches withstand at least 200 meters of depths and are specialy designed for it.
One of the best affordable divers watch manufacturers novadays is Seiko. Check Seiko website and learn about divers watches and all the features they have. List of waterproof markings and explanations are also available.
