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

Hi, I have a Seiko M705 series divers watch. The watch has stopped. ie the seconds is stuck on 00 and the time is not advancing. You can set the time to any time you want but it just stays there...as if frozen. You can still go through the different modes etc and the light also works. Any suggestions?

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.

Hi my edifice era300rb second hand does not stop at 00 whereas it stops two seconds forward 00


I had this on a Seiko after having the battery changed. With mine, you pulled out the crown one stop, and pressed the button that controls the hand you want to move. Each press advances one second.

Hi.ive own a 70s seiko diver 6309-7040 an problem is now the watch is not keeping time (slow at least 5mns a day)can i do DIY adjustment on it..pls helpguide..thanks.


As thesed watches are sealed it is unwise to attempt any DIY activity.

As you have had the watch for many years it is very likely that it needs a clean. As it is so old, some parts may need replacing and this can only be doneby the maker. (Most makers recommend cleaning every 3 years or so).

If it is only just starting to loose time, then you have done very well out of it!

Date Changes during the day


Hi Jeffrey, Put stem into "set hands" position and adjust hands to the 12:00 position. Day and date should advance at or close to that time. If you pass 12:00 and there's no change continue rotating another 12 hours and they should advance. Once youv'e found that there's midnight so if you're setting the time at say four (4:00) in the afternoon (pm) you will neew to rotate the hands so around the dial so they pass 12:00 once more then four hours more to 4:00. Now I assume by bilingual you mean that the day ring has like Mon (monday) and Lun for Spanish or the like. In this case if it's showing the wrong languare set the crown (winder) to the first position (second posn is "set hands) and rotate winder eithr clockwise or anticlockwise. Once you discover how to advance the day ring just set it to the correct day/language you want and press the crown home. Hope this solves your problem. If the advances are changing at some obscure time like 8:40 or something it's because the hands pave been located incorrectly and would need correcting by removing movement from the case.

How do you set the day/date on a watch????????


Try this solution I posted earlier for a similar problem.
Put stem into "set hands" position and adjust hands to the 12:00 position. Day and date should advance at or close to that time.
If you pass 12:00 and there's no change continue rotating another 12 hours (to twelve o'clock again) and they should advance. Once you've found that there's midnight.So say it's now 4:00pm you would need to rotate the hands around the dial again so they pass 12:00 once more (12:00 midday) then four hours more to 4:00.
To set the day/date you can set the crown (winder) to the first position (second posn is "set hands) and rotate winder
eithr clockwise or anticlockwise. Once you discover which direction advances the date and day ring just set it to the correct day/language and date you want then press the crown home.
Hope this solves your problem.

I just purchased my son a Seiko Divers Automatic 200M watch for graduation. For the first few days, the watch worked, but ran about 15-20 minutes fast. Now it won't move at all? Tried wearing it for 8...


Hi mtrahan99. My advice is to take it back and get it replaced, particularly if you have only had it a few days. If they won't exchange it or refund you, get a repair under the guarantee. Automatic watches (and Seiko actually make some very good ones) don't need to be worn all the time to wind them, and the fact that it ran so fast and has now stopped would indicate something major like problems with the mainspring. Return it! Hope this helps; Eagle58

Second hand doesent return to 1200 position after replace batt


I just replaced the battery in my 20yr old Seiko chrono sports 100. And I had the same problem. I think I stopped it on 12 while in stopwatch mode and held down the start stop button and the set button at the same time. See if that works dude.
