Bill, when you say "does not work" I am going to guess you mean that the second hand does not sweep as it should, so you do not have an accurate indication of remaining capacitor charge.
There are many other malfunctions of the Indicator on a Seiko Kinetic but I am guessing that is your current watches malfunction.
The button at 2 o'clock depresses a tiny lever inside the watch, and that in turn releases a discharge from the capacitor.
The strength of that discharge swings the indicator.
The lever itself is very very small, and can be misaligned, very commonly after capacitor replacement.
Actual breakage of the lever is quite rare.
Does the button have a definite detente when you press it?
Or is it instead like pushing on Jello.
Is the button spring loaded such that it returns to the neutral state on its own?
It is actually a quick diagnosis for anyone familiar with Kinetics; as a quick peek will tell if a broken lever, absent button gasket, need of lubricant, etc.

That is way too fast for a Seiko Kinetic. There is no adjustment to slow it down. With time of course it might run slower as the gears get dirty. Maybe Seiko will replace the movement, worth asking

By a watch repairman. The nut that tightens the hand to the shaft has loosened enough to allow the hand to slip slightly.

If you can have both clocks running at same time, yes but they'll be on different screens. you just have to go back and forth between screens.

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.

Seiko does not publish that in hopes that you take it into a dealer to have it worked on but the battery is a 371
