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.

Try entering "Seiko p065" into the search engine of your computer and perhaps a dealer or the factory can help you.
God bless your efforts.

If your watch is an analogue, then yes, it is very safe to assume it is 1.5V.
If your watch is digital, depending on how many functions it has(especially if it has a night light), it will most probably take 3V.
In either case, it doesn't hurt to start testing with a 1.5V battery.

Tip

Replacing the Battery/Capacitor of a Seiko Kinetic watch


There are some articles and videos circulating recently about replacing a Seiko Kinetic Capacitor with a common Silver Oxide battery, the type used in common watches.
In a word: Don't.

I have replaced over 200 Seiko Kinetic Capacitors (sometimes mistakenly referred to as a "battery") and am very comfortable discussing the right way to get a Kinetic running correctly, versus the wrong way.
Can you remove the Kinetic's rotor and put in a Silver Oxide battery the same size as the previous Capacitor and your watch will work? Possibly.
Will you install the new battery upside-down? Very likely.l
If you touch any of the vital contacts inside the watch with the battery will it fry your watch? Possibly.
Will the watch overheat or burn? Possibly. Typical batteries don't have the inner chemical makeup of a Lithium-Titanium Capacitor.
Is the pendulum that is weighted and designed to turn the rotor going to be negatively affected? Probably.

The cost of a correct Seiko Kinetic Capacitor has dropped dramatically, reputable sources like Amazon now sell genuine Seiko Capacitor kits for about 20 dollars.

Why risk a 400 dollar watch to save 10 dollars on a battery.

Let me know if you have any general questions about Seiko Kinetic Capacitors and/or Batteries.
There is a lot of inaccurate information floating around, which can be expensive.

I have a Seiko kinetic watch and it has behaved perfectly for over two years and therefore I think that yours is faulty.

I suggest you send it to Seiko to have it repaired or replaced under warranty.
