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.

The normal clock/alarm functions of the Seiko SQ767W work worldwide, but because the feature that automatically sets the time via radio signal only works in Japan, Seiko only provides the manual in Japanese.

Here's an English version I made with the help of onlinedoctranslator.com (uses Google Translate). I made a couple of adjustments but it's still pretty rough due to the machine translation.

Did you call Seiko? Normally they do not sell parts to non authorized service people. If you send them the watch and it is not obsolete they will change the circuit board for you...

Take it to a local jewelry shop and have them either fix or send it in for repairs

Seiko Wrist 5... | Answered on Jan 06, 2018


I had a stunning Seiko, back in the '70's. Went into a pawn shop, silver and turquoise Navajo bracelet. Cost me $50. 2 yrs later, it screeched to a halt. Sent it back and sent $25. Two years later, it happened again. Ergo, I had to re-buy my Seiko every 4 years. So I replaced it with a $10 Timex, that is Still running. Love the set, now! That was then. It seems they Still want to do all the work.... I now have a favorite jeweller, the family has been in business since the ? - 1930's? I would find someone like the Butterfield Jewelers, call and ask if they can work on your watch. (these guys are Amazing! I take my solar watch to them just to re-set it!
