Wow, Seiko is a all-time favorite! Why not take it to a Seiko Repair Center and pay a few bucks to have one professionally installed?

Real shame if YOU installed a knock-off and it leaked on you!

Tip

Do not test a Seiko Kinetic Capacitor with a battery tester


The Seiko Kinetic watches use a Capacitor (rechargeable battery) that costs
between 16 and 30 dollars.)

They drain drastically if they are tested using a typical battery tester using 2 prongs to get a reading. It shortens the life of a capacitor significantly.

Don't ruin a good capacitor by testing it with a battery tester.

You already know if it is doing the "2 second Tango" the capacitor is depleted and needs replacement.
A lot of Kinetics sold used will tick when worn and a little while after being taken off the wrist, but then stop.
Those are depleted capacitors, that need to be replaced.

If it is a 10 second Indicator swing replace the capacitor within a few weeks.
A 20 second swing is good for months in most modern Kinetics.

The Kinetic capacitor will not be at full charge when first installed.
Either wear the watch you installed the new capacitor in for a few days,
or put it on an electric toothbrush charger for a few hours, and it will reach maximum charge.

Money saving Tip about Seiko Kinetics


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.)

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.
