Two sec jumps is low power in the elec store,,, winds with movement back and forth as your arm would swing. Sometime the day date function is changed by pressing the small button type crown in slightly with your finger nail.it may have on or two detents if so it adjusts both functions. if not the stemcrown needs to be used to set day and button to set date.

Thank you for contacting FixYa.<br /> You will have to contact Seiko on this one. I would tell you to just change the date to the day before and then forward the time, but I think I would just contact them as it is such a delicate timepiece.<br /> <a href="http://www.seikowatches.com/technology/kinetic/index.html">http://www.seikowatches.com/technology/kinetic/index.html</a><br /> Best regards.

1st reason. This means your oscillating weight and paired gears are not generating enough power to charge capacitor, thus not be able to move hand properly. 2nd reason. Capacitor can not recharge itself to full power and needs to be replaced. 3 reason. Seconds or chrono wheel has a mechanical fault developed over the time and needs to be cleaned or replaced. Those are 3 reasons why the seconds hand stops moving in Kinetic watch. Which one is right, you will find out only after visiting watch repair shop, because I can not give correct estimate without seeing the watch myself.
Rate me, plz.

take watch to a jeweler, or pawn shop and have it cleaned and oiled.

Unfortunately, the Seiko website does not have a serial number lookup, so you'll have to identify the model. The "8123-7190" is what Seiko calls the "caliber code." Entering that on the page linked below will narrow down the model number list for you. Clicking on the link for your model will give you the instructions in PDF format. The instructions for your model tell you what size battery to use. For example, the manual for the 8F32 states on page 11 that the battery size for that model is CR2412. (Note - be sure to get the correct instructions; different models have different battery sizes.) "Automatic" Divers watches have no battery, they are powered by a spring mechanism.

the make of the battery is of no importance
it is the size and voltage that counts
if the watch is water proof , you will need to have a jeweller or watch maker replace the battery as the case will be sealed

Take it to a jeweler for diagnosis and cure

Tip

How to charge a Seiko Kinetic with an electric toothbrush charger


This is the Sonicare "Advance" model charger.
Other chargers will work, but many do not open with screws, they instead are welded or glued shut and must be shattered to get open.
I use the Advance charger for my toothbrush and to charge my watches.
This model has 2 very simple screws.
And the inside is arranged such that a watch fits logically over the flux.
Photo 2 shows the bottom of the charger.
Photo 3 shows the same charger with the screws removed and the bottom plate removed.
In every model of charger there should be a rectangular section and a circular section.
The circular section holds the electromagnetic flux generator. That is what will generate the power to charge your watch.
In most Seiko Kinetics the Generating Coils lays beneath the 8 o'clock marker on the watch.
You would like to have that 8 o'clock marker pointed toward the 9 o'clock spot on the Circle.
(See Photo 5)
On other chargers and with other watches simply rotate the watch around stopping ever 10 degrees or so for 10-15 seconds, until the watch starts to tick in 2 or 1 second intervals.
It may take several days to charge your Kinetic if it was fully discharged.
I hope this is helpful
